I need to spec out two routers for a BGP multihoming setup consisting of two DS-3 connections from separate ISPs for redundancy. I'm currently planning on using one router for each of the eBGP DS-3 connections and using iBGP internally between them.
We currently are using a Cisco 2821 for a single DS-3 connection. I need to know if the 2821 will still be capable when the second connection is added and iBGP is implemented? Would the 3800 series be a better fit?
3845 with 512MB memory is recommended, it can scale up to 1GB memory and multiple network modules. Beside, only the following model support up to two DS3 module NM-1A-T3; 3660, 3745, 3845 http://www.cisco.com/en/US/products/hw/routers/ps274/products_data_sheet09186a0080091b9e.html
