We are currently using 2 Cisco 7201 w/ NPE-G2 pushing about 1300-1400 PPPoE sessions via L2TP tunnel on each. Each device does about 850Mb/s throughput. In total we have around 2700 PPPoE sessions with a total of around 2Gb/s bandwidth. We provide ADSL service.
We are in the market for another Cisco but was wondering what the Cisco ASR1001 or Cisco ASR1002 would be able to handle ? Also we want to replace our aging Foundry Bigiron 4000 that has 2 BGP sessions without full views.
We're looking to consolidate everything into a Cisco ASR device possibly to save space and allow growth. when it comes to the point that we need to push the BGP to a different device, that won't be a problem. We also require the device to allow for 10Ge connectivity that we will be expanding to in the close future.
This would allow us to condense our 7U space into 1 or 2U space with much more horse power.
Thanks for your time.
