A quick question
We want 1gig+ growth upwards in routing throughput with full BGP tables from multiple upstreams.
I have been looking at 76XX with dual 720 sups and also the 12XXX series.
the 76xx would run SSO/NSF and the 12XXX would also have dual controllers ( or the equivalent ).
From an initial perspective I see the 76xx as a cheaper option as both have capability for 10ge interfaces.
I am interested in opinions regarding in-service upgrades and other features that set apart the 12XXX series.
i.e Why would I buy a 12XXX over a 76XX S series?
