For branch offices, it depends on what type of bandwidth is required.
If your planning on running a single t1 or 2xT1(bonded) then you can run a 2800 series ISR.
2800 series routers can run fractional T3 but be careful. If you plan on running a T3, its best to do it on a 3800 ISR.
If your getting an "ethernet handoff" then you can use a L3 switch like 3560/3750.
Central Site should be either a 7600 or 6500 depending on what type of connection will terminate. Dont go with anything lower than a sup720. Research what you need as the sup720 come with 256k or 1 million route support.
Think about implementing the 3-tiered Cisco model (Core/dist/access).
Best way would be to call up Cisco and get rep to come out and survey your environment.
[toc:faq]The ProblemOn traditional switches whenever we have a trunk
interface we use the VLAN tag to demultiplex the VLANs. The switch needs
to determine which MAC Address table to look in for a forwarding
decision. To do this we require the switch to do...
[toc:faq]Introduction:Netdr is a tool available on a RSP720, Sup720 or
Sup32 that allows one to capture packets on the RP or SP inband. The
netdr command can be used to capture both Tx and Rx packets in the
software switching path. This is not a substitut...
IntroductionOSPF, being a link-state protocol, allows for every router
in the network to know of every link and OSPF speaker in the entire
network. From this picture each router independently runs the Shortest
