I am looking at replacing our aging router - an old Cisco 2811 - with a new unit. What kind of criteria should I be looking at to select a model?
I have a few fairly long runs I'm looking at so I'm going to need fiber interfaces. I also have about a dozen local switches, each of which should have a 1 gig uplink.
The switches we use for our servers (HP 2900 series) support a 10 GB back pane which I'd like to leverage for my router access.
Ideally I'd like the 10 gig ports for linking to my servers to run at wire speed.
