Routing Performance

Hello,

I'm looking into setting up a T3 between two of my locations. The price of the T3 isn't all that bad, the issue is finding a way to route traffice over the T3 at wirespeed. I can't use a layer 3 switch (no serial connections), and traditional routers that can route at that speed are very cost prohibitive. Is there any way that you know of that we could route at wirespeed (45Mbps) without having to buy a traditional high end router??

If you are concerned about price, try looking at the line of RAD products for T3. Here is the link:

Re: Routing Performance

What do you consider high-end? A 3725 should be able to handle a full-duplex T3 (90Mbps) easily, as it can do well over 90Mbps between FastEthernet ports with decent-sized packets and no performance-reducing features such as ACLs or NAT enabled.

What router will meet your performance needs depends on how much bandwidth you need to push (45Mbps or 90Mbps), what the average packet size will be, and what features you'll use that can potentially affect performance. But I mention the 3725 in case you're thinking that you need something in the 7200+ range.
