Madan,

If you mean, can you run it at all, the answer is probably yes - just try "router ?" in config mode and see if BGP is listed. If it is, try "router BGP 65111" and see if it accepts the command without error. If it does, you can probably configure BGP.

If you mean, can you run it to peer with an ISP, that depends. I don't think 64Mb is near enough RAM for peering with someone who is going to send you the whole list of networks. You would want to discuss it with your provider to get the real answer.

You can run BGP on 2600 without any problem. If you worry about not enough RAM, in most cases, you can limit the routes advretised into your network to just the ones you need.

Hope this helps

The matter of fact is how many "BGP tables" and L3 traffic.

I just change the device 2600(w/64M) to 3550(EMI), cause of those reasons.

It was ok, when it's 1.544Mbps and contain ISP's AS table. but couldn't keep work with increased line speed and accept more tables.
