I'm considering to put two cisco 2811 router as BGP edge peer router in to operation in one of customers location.


The conectivity from customer to provider will be up to 10 Mb. There will be no default route and the full internet routing table should be loaded in to the router.


Any Idea if this will work. I mean from the performance point of view?

Hi,


As long as this is a small BGP config without any implementation of Attributes (other than which are default and manadatory) a 2811 should be easily able to handle BGP Protocol even with Full Internet Routing Table.


Still, you should monitor the performance for a while and then only should arrive on final conclusion.


HTH,


Kind Regards.

HI,[Pls rate if Helps]


Refer below link for Cisco 2800 Series Data Sheet:


http://www.cisco.com/en/US/products/ps5854/products_data_sheet0900aecd8016fa68.html



It depends upon number of BGP AS you create on the Router, size of the Routing Table, Load from your LAN Segment to WAN, etc., If it is going to be a Single AS means this is OK for the Support, else i would recommend 3800 Series Cisco Router.



Pls Rate if HELPS

You'r right about MEM, but wath about performance?


Another point is the customer budget. It is not high enough for 7200 router;-)


BTW: the router will have 512 MB RAM.
