Anyone Deployed Ascend's GRF IP Switch?

Joe, I agree with you. We have several of the GRF2s (16 slot) and a few
GRF400s, (1 - 7513) almost cisco fee. I have been working with the GRF
since last August and we like it alot. It does take a while to get the
gated stuff down, but once you get past that then these routers will handle
some traffic and some large BGP tables. We run a ATM network and believe
that IP switching is the right way to go and the GRFs are the first step in
that direction. Move the processing to the board instead of a central
processor also makes alot of sense.
