We have just changed our network and implemented BT IP Clear Network.
Our two manufacturing sites use dedicated IP Clear ADSL in to the IP
Cloud that links back down to us at the same time we have ISDN backup
lines. The routers use a HSRP group on a virtual gateway IP which they
both monitor. If the ADSL goes down, with in a few seconds the ISDN will
dial up and create the connection through our DR centre back to the Live
iSeries. Also on these lines we are running Expand boxes to improve and
accelerate data.

We have 7 remotes sites connected using frame relay from Sprint. Quite
expensive so we are looking at alternatives. Frame relay has 99.99%
uptime and there is an SLA in place. Sprint are moving away from the
frame relay market so it is pushing us in the direction of some kind of
internet connectivity which is actually better for us because we have a
number of sales users who travel and who would like to connect from
home/hotels etc. 
Our problem is capital expense for such an overhaul of the network. It
seems we would require new routers to replace our old (but very
dependable) 5394 workstation controllers. The headaches of
administrating and securing this type of network adds to the challenge.

Subject: [SYSTEM21] Remote Site Connections

We are a small company using System/21 with 3 remote sites. 

I would like to poll the group with a question for those of you who have
remote sites (100 users or less) connecting to your Iseries.

What is the most preferred and dependable architecture used for
connectivity between your headquarters and the remote sites?   

I.E. VPN via Internet, DSL, Frame Relay, Other?
