T3 links

Wwe are currently in the process of taking a T3 point to point connection. My question is we have a 2811 router where we would install the T3 network module, would the cisco 2811 be of a good specification to handle the traffic used on this link.

Many thanks

Re: T3 links

If you are just going to perform normal packet switching with CEF turned on you should be fine. The 2811 can handle 61 Mbps of throughput.

Re: T3 links

yes, but a 2811 only support SUBRATE T-3 service.. meaning you wont be able to fully utilize the line, or from what I remember use it more than 20mbps. the serialization takes a hit on the box, so the earlier bigger quote may be for straight ethernet to ethernet only....

Better off getting a 3825 which can fully utilize the line...
