RE: the new 6509 OSR

My understanding is that the ESR will serve as high-density aggregation for
traditional WAN circuits.  56Kb to DS-3.  The OSR will serve as high-density
aggregation for DS-3 ot OC-192.

I thought that the ESR was the new 75xx class box?

We are about to purchase several of these OSR's.  Here is what we know
about
the OSR.  If you look at the roadmap for the OSR, Cisco is positioning
this
platform to be the next 75xx class device only it will be for high-speed
connectivity at DS-3 or greater.  It will scale all the way to OC-192 or
10
Gig Ethernet.  The main reason we are looking at the OSR vs a plain jane
6509 is because the OSR can serve as a high-speed ingress point to the
MPLS
backbone that we are about to deploy.  The OSR interfaces have deeper
interface buffers than the plain 6509.
