Hub and spoke configuration

Figure 9.3 shows an example of a hub and spoke configuration.

Figure 9.3 Hub and spoke configuration

In this example:

  • This configuration includes three WANJet appliances.
  • The network includes three LANs (LAN1, LAN2, and LAN3) that are connected.
  • LAN1 connects to LAN2 and LAN3, and LAN2 and LAN3 connect to LAN1, but LAN2 and LAN3 do not connect to each other.
  • Configure WANJet2 and WANJet3 as remote WANJet appliances on WANJet1; configure WANJet1 as a remote WANJet appliance on both WANJet2 and WANJet3.
  • LAN1 includes WANJet1, LAN2 includes WANJet2, and LAN3 includes WANJet3.
  • WANJet1 sends optimized data to both WANJet2 and WANJet3, WANJet2 sends optimized data to WANJet1 only, and WANJet3 sends optimized data to WANJet1 only.

Redundant system configuration

Figure 9.4 shows an example of a redundant system configuration.

 

Figure 9.4 Redundant system configuration

In this example:

  • Two LANS are connected, and one of the LANs has WANJet appliances installed in a redundant system configuration.
  • LAN1 includes two WANJet appliances, WANJet1A and WANJet1B, and LAN2 includes WANJet2. WANJet1B is the redundant peer of WANJet1A. In case of router or WANJet appliance failure, the other router and its corresponding WANJet appliance resume function.
  • WANJet1B processes the half of the data in LAN1, and WANJet1B processes the other half of the data in LAN1 (load balancing).
  • WANJet1A sends optimized data to WANJet2, and WANJet1B sends optimized data to WANJet2.

LAN router configuration

Figure 9.5 shows an example of a LAN router configuration.

 

Figure 9.5 LAN router configuration

In this example:

  • A LAN router connects two networks to a WANJet appliance, and the WANJet appliance connects to the outside WAN through another router (WAN gateway).
  • LAN1 includes WANJet1, and LAN2 includes WANJet2.
  • LAN1 comprises three networks VLAN 100, VLAN 200, and WANJet1's network (192.168.1.0/24). The LAN router connects all three networks. You configure the LAN router on WANJet1.
  • You configure VLAN 100 and VLAN 200 as local subnets on WANJet1.
  • LAN1 and WANJet1 connect to the WAN through the WAN gateway.
