Performance of 828 running IPsec? And what to use as central router?

Hi,

we're thinking of building a network consisting of one (or two) central site and +-250 remote sites. For the remote sites we're thinking of connecting them with shdsl to our service providers frame relay or mpls cloud, so we're looking at 828 routers with ipsec. Are these routers performant enough to encrypt/decrypt up to 2Mbps? Or what is their maximum encryption speed?

Second question: what router(s) would you suggest for the central site?

Where thinking 7204VXR with an E3 to the FR or MPLS cloud, but other suggestions are welcome. Is there a limit on number of FR pvc's per physical interface or per router, should we choose to go in that direction?

The 7204VXR will thoretically support up to 10000 subinterfaces with IOS 12.1T and later and up to 3000 subinterfaces in earlier 12.0 and 12.1 code. I would recommend contacting your Cisco SE or pre-sales regarding the network design with the 828 series routers.
