Re: Software router state of the art
Another option (if you want a pure Cisco platform) would be to buy a used Cisco 7500 or 7200 and put a T3 card in there. Those are probably super cheap through reseller channels. (<<$20K for a 1+1).
A quick scan of Ebay shows a PA-MC-T3 for <$3K, a 7505 +RSP4+PS for $300 and a fast ethernet blade for $30.00.
Excluding software licenses (assuming its not running something that its not perpetually licensed to something that will run the T3 card) you are looking at about $3K per T3 in HW.
