LNS alternatives - other than 7200?

Unanswered Question
Sep 7th, 2010


We have multple 7200's currently in place performing LNS duties for DSL services(Plus they are also P/PE's running MPLS/BGP for vrf's) - We need to deploy a new site that will have limited number of DSL tails initially (6-12months, we are only looking at sub 50 DSL tails), so we would prefer not to have to invest in a 7200 initially if we do not need to.

Are there any alternatives to the 7200 that can perform LNS/OSPF/BGP+MPLS/vrf - All DSL tails are handed off via ethernet.

Thanks in advance.

I have this problem too.

We use 7301 for this. Well. In fact it's just a small 7200 with a NPE-1G processor card on board and one single slot for an expansion card.

Hi - Thanks for the reply - Know about the 7301's, but they are still quite pricey....hoping there was something less expensive we could use for the short term, and then we will eventually upgrade to 7200/7300 once capacity becomes an issue.
