Now, Philip, I think along the same path as Vladis: it depends... What does
your physical or layer 2 network look like? How do you expect packets to
move around inside, and in and out, of that topology? You need policing?
How much and of what, etc, etc...?
I'm quite often a fan of confed's, if the network is young thus ``easy''
migration, but there are scenarios... Please provide more detail to this
thread or one-to-one if you prefer.
