I am new to Extreme coming from a Cisco background and I need some help figuring out the best way to add a new uplink to an ISP.
I recently started at this company and my first task is to add a new link to one of our ISPs. They are providing us a 3 gb fiber connection. The problem I have is it will be coming into our network at one site and I need it to leave that site and come into our firewall in our data center. I want to make the connection as secure as possible until it hits the firewall. We have a 10 gb fiber ring and we currently use under a gig on a daily basis. There are 7 router hops between the two sites. We are running eaps on all of the routers. The link will come into a summit x460-g2-24p-10ge4 on both ends and that is the model of all of our other routers in the ring. We are running version 220.127.116.11.
