Remote-access & Load balancers

A Remote Access Pod is designed to allow access to remote employees and customers and B2B external partners using the Internet and private dial networks as the transport medium. Within the pod, the Cisco Dial nodes, Nortel Contivity switches, Juniper’s IVE (i.e., remote desktop), and high rated router devices are used.

The Remote Pod has load balancers (reference) installed to ensure that all the remote access traffic is evenly distributed between the devices available within a site. Two pairs of firewalls will protect all the devices, one pair on the external side of the network protecting the remote access devices from the Internet whereas the second pair will provide protection to corporate resources.
