our client is planning to take 5 separate PPoE broadband  internet connection for this project.The client want to route traffic from

Vlan 301 to port connecting  first internet connection

vlan 302  to port  connecting  second internet connection

vllan 303 to port   connecting  Third internet connection

vlan 304 to  connecting  Fourth internet connection

and rest of the vlans to fifth internet

If we are doing policy based routing ,the internet  connection should be terminated directly to core switch 4507.In this case which device i can use for NAT ing function

This is the problem where the 4507 cannot do NAT. You might want to terminate the internet connection on seperate routers (not switches, the only switch that support NAT is the Catalyst 6500).

Is it possible to terminate all internet connection in a single router connecting to core switch and do PBR and NAT on this router.

If i am using separate five routers,Which routers i can use .

Can i use cisco small  business routers.

Can i use cisco small  business routers.

Depends on the bandwidth of your requirements.
Praveen AR Sun, 06/20/2010 - 22:25

Each broadband internet  connection speed is 32 Mbps.Does smal business routers is efficient to do dynamic  NAT ing

which router should be  used in this situation if i am using separate routers for each internet connection.

Is it possible to do the solution with single route instead of multiple routers.

It means if i have five 32 mbps PPoE broadband  internet connection ,I need five routers to impliment this solution.

Which  cisco router is prefered for this solution.

Hi Leo,

The OP needs to terminate 5 PPPoE in one router.
