I know ExtremeNetwork's high position in L2, but don't have any idea how they
perform on L3. Now an Alpine3804 might the right solution for a customer as
he needs a loadbalancer, switch and router which also should do BGP.
Any experience and hints welcome!
Personally, I'm a purist. I say use something like an Alteon AD3 or
ACESwitch 180e for a loadbalancer, $favorite_vendor_kit for router, and
the alpine for a switch.
