I am a small ISP and will be upgrading our core router and am looking at the capacity of the 7204. I have two internet connections, one a 100 meg with Cogent (maybe increasing to 200 meg) and another 50 meg with another provider. We might be running BGP in the future. We cannot afford the NPE-G1 but looking at the NPE-400. Thank you.
I agee with Paolo that a NPE-400 might be barely adequate for supporting 250 Mbps. For that bandwidth you need about 744 Kpps and the NPE-400 only provides 420 Kpps. 744 Kpps is what you need for wire rate, duplex with minimum sized packets, and although it's unlikely you'll push your links that hard, you also need to have CPU for other processes and IOS features, especially if you plan on accepting two full Internet BGP tables.
Depending on your IOS feature requirements, and if your interface handoffs could be Ethernet, you might also look at the various Cisco Metro Ethernet switches.
You're right we are currently using a Cisco 3550 with the EMI ios and it has been working, but we probably need to revisit as we are growing. For the next year we will be right at 100 meg and 50 meg while adding BGP sometime. I guess we could start with the NPE-400 and then upgrade, huh?
This is actually a pretty cool feature, i didn't even know it existed until I was looking for a solution to advertise a subnet (prefix in BGP talk), only if a certain condition existed. This is exactly what conditional advertisements does
