We want to move 3 partial DS-3s off a 7513 and a 6509-MSFC onto a router that will take up less cabinet space. The DS-3s are currently connected via coax. We were considering moving the DS-3s to 3845 or 7200. Do you have any recommendations? Will a 3845 be able to handle it or would a 7200 be better? What kind of cards will I need to do either one?
Well, two of the three connections are actually on serial interfaces now, 6Mbps on one, 44Mbps on another, and a third one coming soon at over 3 Mbps. I had never seen that much bandwidth running on a serial interface before I got here last month.
How about two 3845s? That would be about 8U of cabinet space. What kind of "faster router card" were you referring to?
Since rack space rental in the hosting center is a monthly cost, I have to consider that also. If we went with two 3845s, and three DS3 cards, the procurement cost quoted was over $31K, and it would take up 6 RU of rack space. One 7206 could handle all three DS-3s and take up 3 RU. Still waiting on a price quote for a 7206VXR and 3 cards. I think the cards would be PA-A3-T3, which would be 90 BW points each, putting us well under the max of 600 points per bus. Checking on cost difference between NPE-G1 versus an NPE-400.
Since it appears you are going to use atm cards you may be able to combine the 2 smaller circuits and save some money. It will depend on if these are meant for redundancey and if they are on the same provider. With atm it is simple to have the vendor move the PVC to the other circuit. It is much more of a chanllenge to get them to move 2 non atm fractional ds3 into one physical circuit.
