Another question:

What kinds of routers can route at near wire speeds a bunch of ports at
155Mb ATM?

--- David Miller

None right now. Gigarouter can handle it theoretically, but...

I'm being picky, but it's a moot question since doing wirespeed OC3c using
ATM is impossible in of itself. Hell, mapping of SONET framings to ATM
cells take off about 6 mbps right there.

Anyway, until then you have a router that can do this, there always are
ATM switches + cluster of routers.


I am told that Cisco has an OC-3 interface to its 75XX series of
routers. If so why would you need a cluster of routers around each ATM
