Is "Bridged" mode supported for WAN COM?

Jump to solution

Hello,

I've been going through VPLEX training and also reviewing the Excel document "IPComConfigWorksheet" to better understand how IP based WAN COM works/is supported.

In this Excel spreadsheet, I see that both "Bridged" (Layer 2) and "Routed" (Layer 3) scenarios are included.  The spreadsheet frequently refers to "Bridged" mode as used for Proof of Concept and Test deployments, which I completely understand.  However, my question is: does EMC fully support VPLEX WAN COM connectivity across Bridged connections in Production deployments?  For example, the customer gets a couple of Layer 2 WAN circuits, where each ISP supplies a switch at each site, and the Layer 2 VLANs are "stretched" across sites for each of the WAN COM port groups.  Fully supported?  Or must customer introduce Layer 3 routing between sites?

Thanks,

Bill

Bridged mode across two independent layer 2 connections is supported.
