Suggest No. of routers in a single metro-ethernet Vlan

Hi,

Just would like to know if there is a recommended no. of routers to put into a single metro-ethernet vlan. The local Metro-ethernet provider suggest 10 routers per vlan but I think 30-50 would be OK ?

Re: Suggest No. of routers in a single metro-ethernet Vlan

This question is like how many nodes can you put into a VLAN. For an answer to be given your traffic types would need to be known. How chatty are your routers? Are you bridging? What type routing / bridging traffic (non-unicase) might you have on the wire? Baseline data from your environment is important to answer this question. There is no hard fast recommendation for this just as there is none for numbers of nodes in a VLAN or router is an OSPF area. This is completely dependant on your environment.

Hope this helps,

Don
