RE: perf #s for GRF vs 7500 Re: Anyone Deployed Ascend's GRF IP Switch?
Has anyone compared the figures or have any feelings regarding the Bay Networks BCN ?? We are considering one over a Cisco 7513/RSP4 or a GRF. Bay claims to hold the entire Internet routing table in just 4-6MB RAM per BGP peer (I assume this is after convergence). They say that the method in which they do this is proprietary. I am just wondering if it is possible..... TIA Paul... > -----Original Message----- > From: Craig A.
