Re: Metro Ethernet: 2821 vs. 2921 router
all the x900 series are ASIC based, and they do not process switch... Process switch is referred to the CPU doing the switching...
And BTW the Cat3750ME does Far better MPLS/MPLS VPN than a router due to the fact the you can tag a VLAN straight into the MPLS... We use them in many of our sites we support... the only time we use 3800/3900s are when it's a DS3 or a serial line.
Have you tried the ME3400 series instead of the 3750 Metro's? We've been deploying those out in the field, they seem pretty good...
Is there a big performance or feature comparison between 3750s and ME3400s? Im looking for MPLS PE (with bgp) capable multilayer switches for remote sites in a CSC environment...
