GSR, 7600, Juniper M?, oh my!

There still is the issue of cost though. GSR line cards are not cheap.

Hence my point about them not being an access router :slight_smile:

I would put 10mbps Ethernet and possibly DS3 in the same pool as E1/T1
though; this still remains in the realm of things a 7500 does fine. I'm
not trying to defend the 7500 platform, it's obsolete all right.
However, free is music to my ears.

10meg ethernet yes, DS-3 depends on whether you own the telco side as


... except, they are.

6 x DS3 cards are $750 on ebay; 4 x OC12 cards are $4k.
