In this post I will explain how to deploy Nokia vSIM/vSR in distributed mode, in the previous post I have explained how to deploy vSIM/vSR in integrated mode “Getting Started Nokia vSR on GNS3“.
As we know the vSIM can be deployed in two mode : integrated or distributed.
The Integrated model allow us to emulate physical router using a single VM. All function like control, management and data plane are performed by the resources of the single VM.
An integrated vSIM can just deployed in chassis type SR-c4 or SR-c12.
The distributed model uses two or more VM that connected to internal network to emulate physical router.
In a distributed system, each VM is specialized, supporting either control plane (CPM) or dataplane functions (IOM or XCM). A distributed vSIM support one CPM or redundant CPMs in the same active-standby model as the emulated physical router.
A distributed vSIM can be deployed in anything chassis type except SR-c4 or SR-c12
In this post I will try to emulate physical Nokia router chassis 7750-SR7 with single CPM5 and IOM3-XP with MDA m10-1gb-sfp-b and isa-tunnel. Read More
