Dual WAN port routers?
« on: January 11, 2020, 08:23:49 PM »
I have a client that has two ISP's, a primary and a backup, and I'm wondering which routers you guys are using that have two WAN ports.

They really are not interested in load balancing or anything other than a failover situation. When the time is right I plan on having a meeting with them to let them know what the advantages are as far as balancing because they do transmit video signals 24/7.

My buddy pushes a company called big leaf.   It’s some router that has 2 or more wans connected that goes through their service and they provide the outside IP via their device.    You can unplug either wan and it’s business as usual.   Even VoIP calls are seamless during a failure as far as I know.

Big Leaf is an SD-WAN provider we've actually looked at also.  They give a good sales pitch.
