Am looking at purchasing a router that is capable of serving a WAN bearer at up to 1Gbps. The 3945E has had good reviews as a high throughput router but the datasheets suggests performance of 350Mbps. It also states that additional performance can be ensured by adding SPE modules. Does anyone know whether the 3945E could achieve up to 1Gbps with SPE modules?
If the 3945E can't achieve such performance, I would appreciate alternative model suggestions. The key features I am after are:
IPV4 and IPV6 support
1Gb Copper Connections on-board with capability of at least 4 Ports
Am looking at purchasing a router that is capable of serving a WAN bearer at up to 1Gbps.The ASR range is your best bet. It will do >1Gbs per interface as compared to the 3945E.
Have you looked at the new 4451-X ISR?
Supposedly the same pricing as the 3945E, but with 1-2gpbs+ performance.
Also with very low impact when turning on features in comparision with the older ISR routers.
I saw a presentation about it on Cisco Live Virtual.
