Failover link between HQ and Branch

Hi fellow experts,

 

I have been told by the customer that, they have a DTS fiber optic to connect between HQ and branch, Cisco 2911 on both side. They also have a WAN link which connect to a ISP as a backup link. When the DTS fiber link fails, they manually unplug and plug in the cable from the Cisco 2911 router to the ISP router.  

 

Now, the customer wish to make this process automatically, where the DTS fiber optic remain, and also have the connection to the WAN via VPN. Can it be done? What is the solution? 

Please find the attachment for reference.

You can do next:For example

You can do next:
For example Your interfaces on first router:
Gig0/0.1 ip address 10.0.0.1/24 link to second router
Gig0/0.2 ip address 10.10.0.1/24 Inside network
Gig0/0.3 ip address 81.23.123.77/30 WAN

router eigrp 10
 network 10.0.0.0 0.0.0.255
 network 10.10.0.0 0.0.0.255
 network 10.20.0.0 0.0.0.3

Int Tunnel1
 ip address 10.20.0.1 255.255.255.252
 ip mtu 1400
 ip tcp adjust-mss 1360
 tunnel source 81.23.123.77
 tunnel destination 81.23.10.2
 tunnel mode gre ip

 

For example Your interfaces on second router:
Gig0/0.1 ip address 10.0.2.1/24 link to second router
Gig0/0.2 ip address 10.10.2.1/24 Inside network
Gig0/0.3 ip address 81.23.10.2/30 WAN

router eigrp 10
 network 10.0.2.0 0.0.0.255
 network 10.10.2.0 0.0.0.255
 network 10.20.0.0 0.0.0.3

Int Tunnel1
 ip address 10.20.0.2 255.255.255.252
 ip mtu 1400
 ip tcp adjust-mss 1360
 tunnel source 81.23.10.2
 tunnel destination 81.23.123.77
 tunnel mode gre ip

Also, You can use bandwidth on Tunnel interface like:

bandwidth 10000
