VPN WAN to cellular failover - adjust convergence time/failover time (OeR/PfR capability)

Hi guys,

 

we are running MX67C-WW with a primary internet connection, as well as a 4G integrated backup connection.

 

We where testing the fail over capability as follows:

 

Test 1:  removing the network connection on the Meraki side of the LAN segment between Meraki and the DSL router facing the internet.


--> Results in pretty instant failover to the 4G connections, within roughly 11-15 seconds, which is "good enough" for our operation. Probably the Meraki picks up the link down situation and reacts promptly.

 

 

Test 2:  removing the DSL routers DSL facing PPPoE connection, to test an upstream router failure past the DSL router (DSLAM issue, provider routing issue, physical last mile issue, router interface issue)

 

--> Results in and around a 5 minute convergence / failover.

 

Is there any user configurable way, to adjust this to a more aggressive time / timer value / hold down ?

 

thanks

 

Colin

What is "No" referring to?

There is no way to do this.
