Re: WAN hardware

Hi, the best is to have the cs/dsu embedded in the router interface. The exact model of interface then varies from router model and application.

Re: WAN hardware

Hi, there is no benchmark, each customer buys something different from the small 857/adsl to huge router/switches with optical interfaces. All depends by application, profile and budget.

To learn about routers, go into the documentation and read. It's all explained in there.
