I have a customer who will subscribe to a DSL link from the telecom provider. They will put their modem and a an ethernet copper link will be given to the customer.
I have 2 firewalls proposed for redundancy for 2 internet connections.
Do i need a router facing the telco? (just added cost)
I've connected the firewalls directly to the core switch.
I dont see a need for an internet router unless there is some BGP or MPLS link from the provider.
The only routers I used are voice gateways.
Is the solution correct or am I missing some essential value for the 2 internet routers?
