implementing a WAN

By wcquan ·
As part of a case study, I must design a theoretical network with domains in 3 cities. We are to route information between City A + B and City B + C. We have 3 routers to use for this project.

Would't one 3 port router in City B do the job?
Can you describe a senario using all three routers. Or can you recommend a book?

Thanx

Sounds like what they are after is a router at each location and trust relationships set up between A + B and B + C.

There are a myriad of books on this subject, depending upon your Skill level and comfort level. My recommendation would be "Top-Down Network Design" by Priscilla Oppenheimer.

Good Luck!

This sounds a lot like a series of Cisco courses I took back in college. I believe it was back in Cisco III & IV. Actually what you would get from a company such as Cisco is a router with 4 ports like the figure 18-22 at the following URL:

You would really only need a two-port router like the one in figure 18-23 but you might consider a four-port in case you want to expand in the future. I realize this is theoretical but in the real world always make your network scalable! ;-)

You will alos need to make sure you meet your bandiwdth requirements. These routers are modular so you can mix and match your WAN/LAN interfaces.

sorry guys. I accidently rejected all your answers even though both helpped. If you can think of a way to transfer points I will.
