Implementing a Multiple ISP Configuration Using VRFs & MP-BGP

There are a few different ways you can implement provider redundancy in your network. You could terminate all ISPs into a single router using traditional ip sla + track. You could terminate the ISP connections on different routers, or even have a router per ISP – a 1:1 ISP to router ratio. The last method would most likely become cumbersome though if you grew beyond dual ISPs.

My personal favorite is to split the provider connections between 2 routers. If you only have 1 ISP per router, this video may not be for you; if you end up with more than one ISP on a single router, you might find this helpful.
