We are in the process of replacing our aging 3640 supporting one of our secondary internet links. The 3640 was put into place several years ago just because that is what we had on the shelf and the link is only a T1. We are trying to decide between a 2800 series and a 3800 series replacement. Since this is simply a "backup" link with a T1, We are thinking that the 2800 series would be ok since they do well up to about 6Mb of bandwidth.
We are looking for opinions and/or comments as to whether or not this platform will sufice or should be just step up to the 3800 series we use for our large corporate links?
It will have a few Lan-to-LAN connections on a regular basis just to monitor for issues on the link. It is also the backup path for the VPN clinets but other than that it is basically waiting for the primary link to fail.
We are thinking 2821 security bundle with maybe a memory increase for routing tables and possibly an IDS. Think the IDS may be a bit much since this is simply a backup link.
Any of the 2800 series will handle a single T1, however you might also take note of how many and what type of modules the particular model will accept and whether you might desire to add additional WAN bandwidth in the near future when making your decision.
We are pleased to announce availability of Beta software for 16.6.3.
16.6.3 will be the second rebuild on the 16.6 release train targeted
towards Catalyst 9500/9400/9300/3850/3650 switching platforms. We are
looking for early feedback from customers befor...
