Our Next Meeting - Wednesday January 7, 2015

Over the Top Routing (OTP)

OTP enables you to quickly and easily deploy remote offices and data centers in multi-carrier IPv4 or IPv6 WAN design. With OTP, you no longer need to peer and exchange internal routes with Service Providers, create filters and redistribute routes in to and out of their Internet Gateway Protocol (IGP).

OTP simplifies multi-site deployments by utilizing a "route reflector" architecture where all participating WAN routers exchange their internal routes and the data path operates independently from the underlying WAN network thereby facilitating seamless introduction of new branch sites into the customer's WAN network. This greatly reduces operational costs and simplifies WAN deployments.

The session will expose you to various deployment scenarios including point-to-point site connections, route reflectors, dual home, dual providers and encryption for public networks. A solid understanding of routing and EIGRP is very beneficial for this session.
