I need to calculate or just know the actual throughput of a Cisco 7206 router with G1 and with G2 NPEs and for a Cisco router 7204 with the NPEs listed above.
I searched the Cisco site and looked at thevarious datasheets but they all talk about the performance which is not the actual throughput.
The reason for this is that we are building a whole new office and are moving to Cisco Gears from Extreme and for this I have benn asked to come up with some numbers for Power requirement (which I have already done that one) and actual throughputs forthe routers. we will be having a Fractional DS3 and a 100MB back-to-back Ether connection to the Internet. Now, I have to come up with the throughput (for my boss) of the router and a way for redundancy/failover given the 100 MB Ether and the Fractional DS3!?
I really don't know what I will be needing to do for the redundancy part, autiomatic using BGP? HSRP? other ways?
the fact that Fractional DS3 terminates on the router and to me, the 100 MB must terminate on the Cisco 4510R (SUP 6), if mu asumption is correct but istill don't know how to get that going?
is there any other ways to do this?
I know that I asked two very different questions but please try to help me on both the questions so that I don't post another questions on the almost same issue.
I really appreciate your help.
