Cisco 2600 or 1760 for T1 router?


We currently have a Cisco 2600 T1 Router for ISP # 1 -- we are getting another ISP (ISP # 2) for a redundency..

My question is this....

How would you guys compare the 1760 to the 2600 for being a simple t1 router.

1760 with:
 1760 modular access router for data and voice with 4 slots
 packaged smartnet
 ip/adsl plus
 1 port t1 or fractional t1 dsu/csu wan interface card WIC-1DSU-T1-V2=

thanks much

If the router is doing nothing more than connecting to a T1, I see no value in using anything with more horsepower than a 1760, but at the same time, you don't need the voice codecs in the 1760. Keeping them both the same also has advantages.
If you're connecting to a second ISP, how are you handling the redundancy without BGP? Using BGP will require more memory and horsepower than either of these two routers...
