Layer 3 between 2 buildings

L2 Linker

Hi everyone,

 

I have 2 buildings; they are about 40 miles apart. I'd like to set up a layer 3 connection (OSPF) between 2 buildings. The fiber connection is provided by the ISP and is ready. I have a couple of questions:

 

 Is it a good practice to use virtual wire ports between 2 routers A and B for layer 3?

We own all the equipment but not the fiber connection (lease from ISP), what would you suggest in this case?

Hello,

Why not setup the layer 3 and OSPF on the PAN? 

Just a thought.

Hi,

 

I thought about that as well. Our current PAN is handling BGP and other securities. I'd like the routers to deal with the rest of the routings.
