OOB



We have a management VRF/L3VPN across the network but we also have automatic backup via a OOB network. The OOB network is cheap, based on 3rd party ADSL connectivity that does not touch our network or rely on IXs etc.

We then run IPSec over the ADSL network.

The probability of both our node AND the DSL going down at the same time is minimal, especially as the DSL is copper to a local exchange.

We use a management VRF (which is still technically in-band, but otherwise quite
isolated), plus a few terminal servers for out-of-band console access to the critical
devices.
