we're getting an ethernet layer2 VLPS in the near future, with a 1Gb Uplink at our central site.
I intend to use a Cisco 3945 ISR G2 for the (local) LAN to (vpls) LAN routing, but i am not sure it these models are able to handle
1Gbit Lan2Lan throughput. Does anybody knows about the 39xx throughput on it's lan interfaces?
I like to use a router instead of a switch, because i would be more flexible with qos, nat or other possible features.
Another option would be to use a me3400 switch or similar in routing mode to attach that vpls.
But in that case i would have no chance to use encryption or nat, if needed in the future
Thanks in advance.
