Can Cisco 7200 NPE 300 handle traffic of two STM 1 modules

I plan to attach 2 STM-1 modules to my Cisco 7200 NPE 300 with 256 RAM, but I don't know if it can handle that amount of traffic.

1 x STM-1 = 155Mbit

Thanks in Advance

Re: Can Cisco 7200 NPE 300 handle traffic of two STM 1 modules

The NPE-300 appears to max out at around 350Mbps (512+ byte packets) per some SmartBits testing that someone did. But note three things:

1) The test was done with no performance-reducing features (e.g., ACLs) enabled.

2) SmartBits results are best case. Real world traffic flows are almost never so optimal (varying packet sizes, etc).

3) The test was done between two GE interfaces on two PAs. STM interfaces may have different performance limitations relative to GE interfaces.
