Re: Metro Ethernet: 2821 vs. 2921 router

For Metro Ethernet... I'd look at a Switch and NOT a router, something like the 3750 ME it's capable of pushing 8mpps as opposed to 900kpps...
IMHO

MetroE might be code for internet connection with ethernet access handoff to client. You would need a MLS capable of NAT in that case, or a separate firewall.

A bit late to the party, but we ended up going with a 2921. Seems to work out just fine. No complaints.

I will say that the 2921 was roughly the same cost as the 2821 when we were ordering it. I think it's simply a no-brainer considering the 2921 can handle more bandwidth.

Great machine - maybe a bit overkill for your application but excellent bang for the buck

Indeed it is a great machine, an overkill perhaps, but it gets the job done and leaves plenty of room for bandwidth upgrades going forward.

Now our only bottleneck is every subscribers personal router. I think the 20-35 mbps symmetrical bandwidth is too much for some people's equipment. Never thought I'd see this as being a problem, it's a happy/sad feeling.

We bought a pair of these and are very happy thus far.

What was the street price?

We went through our ISP for everything. 2821 was priced at $3200, 2921 came in @ just under $3000. Newer router was cheaper, go figure...
