Best refurbished router for a frac T3 and two Fast Ethernet

Hello,

I am looking for a solution for a router that can handle a fractional T3 (up to 6 Mb eventually) and two Fast Ethernet. There is a possibility for another ethernet port. These ports are not going to be up to 100 Mb, max of 10 really. I also would like it to support a current IOS. My vendor is saying a 7206VXR but the cost is too high. What other solutions are there for one integrated unit? (Not a separate T3 CSU)

Hi,

a 2800 series router should also be sufficient. The 2811 has two 10/100 FastEthernet ports and supports the NM-1T3/E3.

Regards, Martin

Two questions:

Will it be routing much traffic between the two Ethernets? If not, the you could use something as low-end as the 2611 (although I would strongly recommend a 2600XM or 3700 instead). If you can afford a 2800 or 3800 that would be even better.

Also, will it be running BGP and what type of routing table size? Full routes will take a lot of memory and CPU, and makes it difficult to use older hardware.

Re: Best refurbished router for a frac T3 and two Fast Ethernet

The router will have a fractional T3 (running at 3Mb), and the two ethernets will just be sharing that 3 Mb bandwidth. There will be occasional other traffic over one of the ethernet links, but this is a router just for ethernet access. I cannot use a 2611 as there is no T3 option. I need a T3 card built in, and not an external CSU.

Thanks!
