Need a relatively inexpensive solution, traffic 200 Mbit/sec, a small provider and a dozen of their servers.

Let down by the two optical channel — main and reserve. A piece of iron should be able to switch between channels if one of them falls.


A piece of metal quality.

A router on freebsd (+ the Converter optics-copper) will be the most inexpensive solution.

still depends if you will use full table, and how the vrf-s.

"..For full BGP routes, you should consider a router that can take at least 256MB of RAM. I am working with a pair of 7206VXRs (NPE-G1) to separate ISPs, and each router is using around 161MB of the installed memory (1GB). At least 100MB of that 161MB is tied up by BGP..."

"the 3845 is higher thruput than 720x / NPE-400.
the interfaces are a bit cheaper on the 3845 as well.
also — last time i checked the 3845 was the smallest / cheapest box that can
take dual power supplies."

Mikrotik RB1100AHx2 is worked year up to 250 Mbps of traffic. Held BGP Full View, NAT, Firewall stable software 5.xx

You can take a piece of metal that is twice as expensive and draws more Gigabit: http://routerboard.com/CCR1016-12G

But then there's raw software 6.xx, in which a lot of glitches.
