Hi meraki community.
I have been designing a best solution for a customer, that needs a 3rd ethernet wan uplink. So i have some questions.
I have just one MX for site, and dont have HA configuration, by can´t add a spare.
1. The mx can have more of 2 ethernet wan uplink? How is that configuration?
2. If ia need configure flow preferences (internet traffic), there are some kind configuration that enable the prefered uplink in a VLAN?
Thanks, i will be waiting for your help.
Solved! Go to Solution.
MX only has two WAN interfaces. The only option for a third WAN is LTE (but only as a backup).
Of course you can have flow preference...but only for two uplinks.
thanks. the problem is i dont have MX(C) model, and my 3rd wan uplink, is needed if 2 first wan uplink fails. its a bakcup, but i cant use a doongle or a MX(C) model. by the way, this underlay is LTE, but using a router with this feature. And comercial team, think uses more than 2 wan uplink.
The max is 2 wan uplinks on the mx itself.
Flow preference is based on a ip or subnet of that vlan.
You could connect a 3rd internet provider on a lan port and make a default route for a vlan to that port, but you lose most mx functionality for that traffic.
thanks. Indeed, now i have a 3rd "wan" conections by a LAN and i am establishing the active route with a static route and the opticon "while host X responds to ping". And the autovpn (the real 2 wan uplinks), remains other routes as standby waiting happens the conditions in the static route.
As can you see, in the active route i'm not doing a VPN, only a simple MPLS(thats my underlay), and this design is nos SDWAN, and the commercial team, insist in keep call it as SDWAN.
maybe you know, if meraki support recognize a design like this this, as a functional in PBR? (i know thar i cant use this, like application routing)
I have 1 internet, 1 mpls and 1 LTE, but using a router with this feature. And preseales team, didnt make a budget of MX(C) model or LTE Usb Doongle.
thats why i need meraki MX support a 3rd ethernet wan uplink 😞
Really thank you.
With this document, i can check that the re-design proposed is supported by meraki.
Thanks for you all.
