Cisco IOS FlexVPN Features and Benefits

Cisco IOS FlexVPN is a unified VPN solution and provides the following benefits:

●   Transport network: FlexVPN can be deployed either over a public internet or a private Multiprotocol Label Switching (MPLS) VPN network.

●   Deployment style: Designed for the concentration of both site-to-site and remote access VPNs, one single FlexVPN deployment can accept both types of connection requests at the same time.

●   Failover redundancy: Three different kinds of redundancy model can be implemented with FlexVPN:

◦     Dynamic routing protocols (such as Open Shortest Path First [OSPF], Enhanced Interior Gateway Routing Protocol [EIGRP], Border Gateway Protocol [BGP]) over FlexVPN tunnels. Path/head-end selection is based on dynamic routing metrics.

◦     IKEv2-based dynamic route distribution and server clustering.

◦     IPsec/IKEv2 active/standby stateful failover between two chassis (available in the future).
