That´s actually a topic, I was thinking ago some time ago. Why not take
a current TOR switch with 1. BGP support and 2. high buffer. Like
mentioned above we have Trident 2 bases switches. HP (no recommendation)
has its HP 5930 series but tells "Routing table size 16000 entries
(IPv4), 8000 entries (IPv6)", but this one has 4GB RAM, so plenty of
space for full tables. I haven´t tried it out myself, perhaps someone
tried on any other device: What will happen, if I give the switch a full
table? Is there a software limit by the vendor, which will simply cut
everything above? Or would it simply work?
