I'm having this question, what brand of full Gigabit core router/switch would you recommend for small local ISP ? It should comply with this requirements:
- at least 2 Gigabit Ethernet ports
- BGP4 (at least several ten thousands prefixes, at least 100 neighboroughs)
- 802.1q vlans
- remote access (ssh or telnet) and serial consoe, web management
- at leasr snmp v2
- full rate gigabit routing with small packets
What brand do you recommend ? Enterasys (f.e. Matrix E-1), Extreme Networks (f.e. Summit X450 or 5i), Huawei (NE08). Please list the one you have positive experience.
