Not really, but if MT would come out with a RouterBoard that had 12, 24, 48 ports and was under $300 we'd buy a *ton* of them. I wouldn't think it'd be that difficult, actually. On Wed, Nov 11, 2009 at 9:36 PM, Faisal Imtiaz fai...@snappydsl.net wrote: BTW, quick question, anyone out there

There are tons of great Cisco Switches going for cheap on the secondary markets in that price range and port density... I think the orignial poster of the email thread was looking for something small, hardend, low power for outdoor application. Faisal Imtiaz Computer Office Solutions Inc.

That is my take on it and what the author of the article hints about. Cisco started in on the server market earlier this year where HP is big. HP now get more serious about networking and expand product offering. 3com is also pretty successful in China so would assume buying 3com will give HP

Don't know about doing it with vlans but the RB450G's (the gigaethernet model) and Rb493AH (high cpu powered unit) can easily handle 50+mbps without breaking much of a sweet. Have a RB450G that is pushing an average of 6Mbps and cpu load don't go over 5% but this unit don't have any vlans active

We use an RB450G as a core in a couple pops. One in particular is running NAT, OSPF, PPTP VPN, MPLS, has about 20 VPLS tunnels, and does firewalling for a couple hundred public IPs. Average throughput: 20Mbps Average CPU load: 8% On Wed, Nov 11, 2009 at 10:52 PM, Eje Gustafsson
