Re: Plethora of UUnet outages and instabilities

The ascend GRF is one kickbutt little router.  We are only using it for
static routing right now, because thats all that we need it for, but it
does have the capabilities to do ospf, bgp and rip.  We switched from a
cisco 7500 because of all of the problems that we were having with
packet loss and speed issues and haven't had a problem with it in the
last 2 1/2 months that we've been using it.

What would you suggest?  I've looked into the Ascend GRF, and if it
performs as much as they hype it (never trust a salesman) then it must be
one kickbutt little router.  My only question is who has some in a real
world setup, doing BGP/OSPF/RIP?  I tried talking to psi.net about their
GRF switchover, and ended up with someone trying to sell me bandwidth.

And yet.. you folks keep on using Cisco..

I agree Jon its insane, I chuckle when I see all these networks melting because
the insist on using Cisco routers. Vote with your money and buy something
that works.
