I would run from the 7206+NPE-G1 in this
capacity. We have not had luck actually getting a gig worth of traffic flowing
through them. Great small site router, but not much on the throughput side at

Subject: GigE Peering Router
I was looking for some opinions on Cisco vs. Foundry (specifically
Cisco's NPE-G1 vs a NetIron 4802). The application is mainly content delivery -
outbound heavy traffic with an emphasis on quality of delivery.
Basically I'm looking at the 4802 because we're able to provision GigE
for all the providers, so we don't really need an architecture that can support
OC-type interfaces. The size is also attractive for some of our smaller PoPs.
I'm also intereted in failover/hot-standby capabilities on the Foundry
as we have had much experience with them.
