Looking for some feedback on a high-speed Internet configuration.
We have a customer that will have a 200meg internet connection (to start with) scaling to 400-500meg. They need traffic policing and full BGP routing.
We initially thought of the 3750Metro switch but this only has 128Meg of memory so Full BGP is out. We are now leaning towards a 7206-NPE2. We think this router will work fine in the 200meg range with policing but are unsure of its ability to scale to 400-500meg with policing. We're thinking we may have to front end it with a MetroE and let the metroE do the Policing at layer 2 and the 7200 do the routing.
Any thoughts on this configuration would be appreciated.
