Building a highly available virtual private network (VPN) network involves protecting it against expected failures, and enabling the VPN network to heal itself in a reasonable amount of time. Organizations have different uptime requirements for their networks. Frequently, when migrating from a traditional circuit-based WAN network, which had high availability mechanisms in place (backup dial interfaces, backup routers), the need to provide the same or better functionality in a VPN is paramount. Fully meshed virtual private networks (VPNs) present a scalability and manageability challenge and have traditionally been avoided by many sites. The Cisco Group Encrypted Transport (GET) VPN technology provides solutions to these challenges and allows organizations to easily deploy complex, redundant fully meshed networks. This course enables you to choose recommended high availability architectures, and to configure a highly available tunnel-based IP Security (IPSec) VPN and shows you how to configure and troubleshoot a Cisco IOS Software GET VPN.
