RE: Cisco Router best for full BGP on a sub 5K bidget 7500 7200 or other vendor ?
Montara is between Pacifica and Half Moon Bay. Everyone has a different perspective - but all valid. However I would say if you are going to go Cisco - and you have no other BGP gear under Smartnet - you might look at the 3725 maxed out. It is new and you will get support and available for 5,000.00 online, equipped with two onboard Fast Ethernet ports. You are likely to buy only single FE modules at 350.00 rather than 2FE's which are hard to find for cheap, and upgrading memory to 256 Megs DRAM is only an addl 150.00. With that said.... I found a rather stupid article that gave the Riverstone high marks. http://www.nwfusion.com/reviews/2003/0714rev.html?page=1 http://research.mwjournal.com/data/jspdetail?id=1025118725_252&type=PROD &src=mwave&x=841473789 The RS 3000 has 20 gbps non blocking. I am likely to go with the Riverstone. I think I can get it for under 2K with 24 10/100 ports, 256 MB of memory, and 20 gbps non blocking switching fabric. Although I will likely place a Cisco box behind it (eventually) for IPSec and the like.

bidget 7500 7200 or other vendor ? 7500 is your best option indeed, I'm using several of these and have close to 300Mb passing through at max, primarily ethernet, but also have serial and ATM interfaces; multiple BGP feeds with full table and quite complex access lists - and its all WORKING! One thing to remember is that while 7500 line was started long ago, there have been new router cards and VIP cards released. So if you have 7500 with RSP4 or RSP8 and use VIP2-50 with newear PA modules, you're really not in 1995 any more... For VOIP you'll need different routers but I don't think you were talking about using your core router to provide voip handoffs. Traffic accounting is working fine with 7500 and external unix system that actually does it though SNMP. P.S. Where is Montara located? I see familar 650 area code and I though I knew all the cities nearby, but definetly never been to Montara...
