Best value router for 10G internet running BGP

Hi All

I am looking at upgrading some internet connections to 10G, our current 4451 routers will not give us the throughput so we need to replace with a sufficient router or switch.

Can anyone tell me what the best value router is to give us 10G throughput as well as running BGP.

you can select ISR4461 but it high throughput is 10G so I recommend go to ASR1K which give above 10G

Hello @carl_townshend ,

the main decision factor is what you are going to receive on the eBGP session:  if you are going to receive a full BGP table you need to go to an ASR 1000, if you receive only a default route, or a default route and some prefixes,  you could use a multilayer switch like a Cat9300 with appropriate licenses to support BGP.

Hope to help
