Give Vyatta on a decent x86 server a try.

Subject: BGP Growth projections
I'm looking for new core routers for a small ISP and having a hard time
finding something appropriate and reasonably priced. We don't have
huge traffic levels (<1Gb) and are mostly running Ethernet interfaces to
upstreams rather than legacy interfaces (when did OC3 become legacy?).
Lot's of choices for routers that can handle the existing BGP tables -
but not so much in small platforms (1-10Gb traffic) if you assume that
IPv6 is going to explode the routing table in the next 5 years. The
manufacturers still seem to think low traffic routers don't need much
memory or CPU.
What projections are you using regarding the default free zone over the
next 5 years when picking new hardware?
