Thirdly, there are some very cunning
ideas being proposed by various hardware people for making
the 7500 do interesting things on the switching front that
very probably will get the router to deal with the kinds of
loads you're asking about.

COOK:  does this mean that there is some way to get the cisco to behave 
like the cascade switch I asked about??  If not what in general does it mean?

Finally you said if the 7500 doesn't perform well then you might have to 
do the redesign I asked about.... meaning going to an atm switched 
backbone with routers at the periphery of the backbone??
