I am looking for the least expensive cisco router that I can put in a colocation center. It will connect to an outgoing DS3 port going to another router 90 miles away. Thats where we need the bandwidth mainly is 90 miles away. At the colocation center it will will run BGP accross 2 providers on2 likely gigabit fiber ports. It will announce 4-8 class C's for me.
I have never worked with BGP before. I was wandering if the 3745 is beefy enough to handle this. I heard for BGP I need at least 512M of RAM. Most likely for the next year or so we will not excede 20mbps of traffic on this. Right now we have 9mbps and are upgrading.M
