I have a customer that is looking at using BGP for their network; one
connection over a few bonded T1s, the other over a Comcast Enterprise
connection (which supposedly will do BGP now).
When I was dual homed a few years ago, a 7204VXR with 256MB was more than
adequate. With routing tables growing the way they are, what's a good
Cisco based solution on the lower end of the price spectrum that should
handle this fine for a few years?
Somebody else is suggesting a Vyatta (Linux based) solution, which makes
me a little nervous. Then again, Linux has improved dramatically from a
security and stability P.O.V, so maybe it's worth a look if there's no
hard drive involved.
