We want compression on our WAN link which is on serial Interface. We have 3640 Router at our end and the remote end router is to be purchased. I have found from the Cisco Website that for 3640, NM-COMPR Compression Network Module can be used for Compression. While at the service providers end I can use Cisco 2600 Series with AIM-COMPR2, Compression Card.The service provider is located in Singapore. Now will you please tell me the following :
Is the hardware I mentioned above suitable for Hardware Compression. How much Compression Ratio I could get .The links available Bandwidth is 1Mbps.
I will be very thankful to you for your guidance in this regard.
Yes, the compression is handled in hardware, you should be able to compress up to a full E1 with either of these cards. Compression as always varies based on the data types. I've personally seen it running with this hardware at about 1.8 - 2.1 x on a full T1.
