2811 BGP Router to Upgrade to 2911

hi all,

i'm currently using a 2811 as our internet/BGP border router with receiving full routes.

the current bandwith is 15 meg and planning to upgrade to 30 meg.

will the current 2811 handle the bandwith and the full BGP routes at the same time?

was thinking to ask our management to upgrade to at least a 2911 ISR G2 since the current router is old.

also, is there any news for EOL for 2811?

2911 should be able to handle 30 Mbps.  The main problem is the full BGP routing table.  And this can alleviated if you load up the router "up to the eyebalss" with DRAM. 

Personally, I'd prefer something chunkier, like 3925/3925E, for future proofing.

thanks pre!

do you know or heard if 2811 is nearing EOL/support?
