Using Extreme for BGP border router?
we are looking at replacing our current border router and I wonder how
good / bad Extreme Networks gear is for doing BGP. I have a hard time
finding any good references on the web.
We are a medium sized ISP with about 2 Gbit/s of Internet traffic. I am
getting full routing tables from my two upstream providers and I am also
transit and BGP peer for some of my customers (~ 14 BGP peers downstream).
Current issue we have is that the global routing table > 250K routes and
the current gear can't keep all that in hardware, and we would like to
use 10G interfaces for future growth.
I would be interested if anybody out here is using an Extreme Networks
box in an ISP environment and is using BGP with multiple peers. I wonder
how the argument goes with Cisco customers/peers and any other issues
that one might run into it.
Thanks in advance for your reply and time,
