Sizing a router for multiple T-1s

I know there are a lot of "it depends" variables, but generally, is there a benchmark or formula for determining how many T-1s can be terminated on a router. For example, a 3640 could possibly terminate sixteen T-1s but I suspect the processor and memory would have a problem with that.

Thank you,

DJE

Re: Sizing a router for multiple T-1s

Hi

you are right, there are lots of "it depends". But just TERMINATING the T1s is not stressing CPU nor does it hog the memory. It depends on what you configure on the interfaces f.e. how much access list entries and which IP switching type and which protocols, accounting in place or not ... you name it.

Re: Sizing a router for multiple T-1s

Thanks for the info. These circuits would be tying in small branch offices to a main location, therefore there would not be "extensive" access lists, IP only.
