I figured I would mention. I have two GSRs (12008) that I am no longer using that support full tables etc. I am happy to sell them for $3k total or $1500 each. That is a no haggle below market price available to folks on this list. They are currently being sold by a 3rd party for $3k each.

Hi, We just recently installed one of these (12008) to take a full OC3 feed. We had to ugprade the memory (on the CPU card AND on the OC3 card), but even then it was cheap. The only catch for most people is they are 240VAC... and they take up about 10u of rack space. Travis Microserv Gino

We installed a GSR with two processor cards and a single OC3 card. The load on our UPS went up by 1% (APC 12kva). The heat generated by that is nothing compared to the three Akamai caching servers (2u HP's with 8 SCSI drives each and dual power supplies). Travis Microserv Scott Lambert
