ExpressRoute Rapid Design
ExpressRoute Rapid Design is a professional service offered by RevNet to discover and design an ExpressRoute connection(s) for our customers. This process involves a customer’s Network, Server, and Application teams to establish Layer 2 and 3 network design to effectively integrate ExpressRoute with the customer’s network. RevNet Architects help determine VLANs required, IP addressing schemes, VNET Gateway configurations, Layer 2 connection partners, etc… in this process. Determining the size of ExpressRoute connection required is an important part of an ExpressRoute implementation. Through the Rapid Design process we help determine usages of applications and services in both Microsoft Azure and other Microsoft Online services such as Office 365. Then we help determine the required bandwidth utilization for all services combined. All of this data is then rolled up in to a rapid design package, ready for implementation!
