I administer a small firm with about 20 locations. Occasionally one of the sites will lose their internet connection, so I'm looking for a relatively failover solution.
I understand the BR1 has a automatic failover solution, but I'd like to purchase a single BR1 and send it sites as needed.
Is it possible to configure the BR1 with a Class B IP address and put it in front of the existing firewall?
For example Site A has a static DSL connection with a 188.8.131.52 IP and a router/firewall behind it. If the DSL fails, I'd like to set the BR1 LAN IP to 184.108.40.206 and set it in front of the firewall and use the cell service to provide internet access to the rest of the network while still having the firewall providing port forwarding/blocking etc.
Would this work? and am I overthinking this?
Thank you in advance for any tips or advice
