I have 3 commercial buildings next to each other owned by the same landlord. Fiber is now coming to our area so they want to sign up for gig fiber and include it in CAM fees to the tenants. We’ll get a block of IP addresses for the tenants to each have their own static but I’m not sure of the best way to deal with the network to divide it all out.
Usually when you have multiple IP addresses from an ISP you plug the line from the ISP into a switch and each router will set the IP. However, we want to do WAN failover with pfsense in case the main provider goes down. Is there a way to do this without doing double NAT to everybody when they plug in their own router? Or is my best solution to provide 2 cables from different switches coming from each ISP to each tenant and it’s up to them to have a router to handle multi wan?
The idea is to do overhead fiber to each building. Any recommendations on a switch to put in each building to activate the fiber? We want 10 GB pushed over that fiber to meet traffic needs (possible shared cluster VM hosting in addition to internet.) Also any recommendation on where to buy lengths of fiber already made that we can run?
