Hypothetically, if you could build a WAN from scratch what would be your ideal setup? I understand some features would be dependent on our local offerings but feel free to mention hardware brands. I’m trying to compile the pros and cons of how to design the network architecture, for example, should hardware be redundant across locations, centrally located or cloud based?
Here are some of the potential needs and preferences:
- Multiple campuses up to 100 miles apart
- Livestream and simulcast capabilities between campuses
- Mobile staff working on/off campuses
Please feel free to share any positive or negative experiences. At this point I’m trying to anticipate rather than react to a poorly thought through implementation.
