Hey there,

 I would run from the 7206+NPE-G1 in this capacity. We have not had luck actually getting a gig worth of traffic flowing through them. Great small site router, but not much on the throughput side at all.

I was looking for some opinions on Cisco vs. Foundry (specifically Cisco's NPE-G1 vs a NetIron 4802). The application is mainly content delivery - outbound heavy traffic with an emphasis on quality of delivery.


Basically I'm looking at the 4802 because we're able to provision GigE for all the providers, so we don't really need an architecture that can support OC-type interfaces. The size is also attractive for some of our smaller PoPs.


I'm also intereted in failover/hot-standby capabilities on the Foundry as we have had much experience with them.
