we are planning to buy a couple of routers to migrate our infrastructure to BGP. we were looking at this router:
However, we have some concerns about its capabilities and throughput for BGP.
Currently we have two uplinks to our ISPs (60Mbps each one) and sometimes we increase it to 100Mbps for special weeks during the year.
We will use these routers only for routing, we won't use any other feature like VOICE.
We are assuming we will use FULL BGP table (we haven't define it yet so I'm thinking worst case scenario) and finally, we'll require 4x1Gig. Ethernet interfaces minimum.
we already did our research and according to this link, the max throughput is 256Mbps : routerperformance.pdf
However, according to Miercom, the real throughput is 45-50Mbps.
Based on the data supplied, and allowing some future growing with the same hardware, do you recommend the 3845 router or can you recommend other that will fit our needs?
What will be the min. Memory required for BGP (full table and partial table)
thank you in advance.
