can somsone advise why a 2800 series router would be better than our 2621xm?  I was told that BGP is not recommended on the 2621Xm routers. Does the same hold true for the 2800s?


Also, when is a good time to upgrade to a 3800? How will you know?

the 2800 series has much more better cpu, which has betteet routing capacity the 2621XM.
The 2621XM is an END-of-Life product!

If you are running a full BGP routing table then the memory in the 2621 will not be able to hold it.  You will need a 2800 series loaded with memory in order to hold a full BGP routing table.

Upgrade to 3800 if you need more horsepower.

Scroll down in this document link.. There is a comparision from 2600 all the way to 3800 routers.

To expand on one of the points made, the 2621 has a max throughput of about 15mbps. The 2821 is around 90mbps and the 3825 is 180mbps
