None right now. Gigarouter can handle it theoretically, but...
We were able to get pretty close to "ATM wire speed" with our
Gigarouter at OSC. The trick of course is to find equipment that can
actually fill the pipe.
I'm being picky, but it's a moot question since doing wirespeed OC3c using
ATM is impossible in of itself.
Yup. There's work in progress to put IP directly on SONET, which should save
people with OC-3c backbones from paying the ATM penalty.
