We are planning on connecting to two ISPs for redundancy via a pair of routers, using Gig Ethernet.
We are looking at either the 7301 or ASR1002. Will the 7301s be able to handle the full internet routing table each, along with an IBGP session between them, and still pass +-500MBit/sec of traffic (over GE)?
The ASRs are just a bit expensive when you start adding NBAR, IPSec, FW, etc to them.
Any other recommendations that aren't more expensive than the ASR1002, but will still perform adequately in our scenario?
