We are building a lab that needs to simulate our WAN. I would like to incude an 2 MSPP routers but the Cisco ONS 15454 SONET Multiservice Provisioning Platform (MSPP) is cost prohibitive. It is what we use so it is the only MSSP I know of.
Is there a low end optical SONET router that can handle 500Mbs or more that anybody knows about?
My second choice is to buy a packet storm but since we are testing video I wanted to be able to test the guaranteed bandwidth that the MSPP offers.
