Dear List:
We are going to be offering 10/100/1000Mbps Ethernet Services to Milwaukee, WI. We are also opening a 15,000 Sq. Foot Carrier-Neutral Collocation Facility. In order to connect our clients to the public peering exchanges in Chicago do you think we should install multiple Cisco 12,000 series routers in multiple POPs in Downtown Chicago, and then transport all of the data back to the Milwaukee Datacenter via Gigabit Ethernet lines (and then connect those gigabit Ethernet lines into Cisco Switches at the Milwaukee Datacenter) or bring the data back on one redundant OC-48 and have a router in Milwaukee to break up the OC-48?
Also, Juniper or Cisco for this situation? What would you go with?
