Which will be a right PITA for providers, as there is nothing to detail it's Backhaul limited.

 



The cabinet list and monthly SLA reports detail cabinets with limited backhaul and/or cabinets with congestion issues.

 

Try having you tier 1 agent review those though...

wow now thats a model number I haven't thought of in a while, I remember how happy I was the day I got my hands on one of these.. it was the perfect adsl router for playing quake.. there was a setting in there g.lite, no idea what it did but would drop anywhere from 10-15 ms off your ping.. amazing..

on that note.. if there are new core routers installed, surely there will be some being removed that could fall off a truck ;)

They could fall... but would you have a forklift handy to pick them up? ;)

Is it just me or is this a bit of a shoddy press release? They interchange talking about new routers and switches throughout the release?

I am sure Chorus do a fair bit of routing but the main network they provide is L2 (and I presume a bit of L2.5/MPLS) so in reality they are switches as they use them..........no?

And your SO probably wouldn't be too keen on either the power bill or the noise level

115.2TB/s, crazy



 


Just wait for a thread to get started about someone complaining they can't get that plan through their provider of choice for $79 a month!


 



Over my Wi-Fi I'm not getting 115.2 TB/s

Can anyone on Geekzone help?

The ALu 7750 series routers / switches are awesome bits of kit. Fun times when I taught myself SROS and configured the BNGs and played with the carrier Ethernet stack.

Correct, they do multiple jobs, but the main 2 are plain old Ethernet switching and as an MPLS LSR (Label switch router). Hence a bit of backwards and forwards between the 2 terms.
It's a blurred, multi-function environment.  I bet there was a long argument about which term was correct in the press release so they decided to use both haha

If you ain’t running BGP and Layer 3 routing between non Chorus entities then it’s a Layer 2 network. Just because it gets encapsulated in MPLS doesn’t make it any less Layer 2 ;)

But congratulations on the upgrade though. ;)

So I HAD to look these up to see what they are like.  Nothing like your home based router!!

 

 

 

A fully configured sr-14s can be up to around $8M NZD depending on the card capability chosen (layer2/layer3/queuing depth etc), likely these ones were in the $1-2M NZD each range. They are about as good as it gets though, the nice thing about these devices is you put them in and schedule maybe one firmware upgrade every 2 years and in 10 years they are still doing the task without any complaints. They are like the mainframe of routers. All this wonderful UFB performance we have does not come cheap but its well worth it.
