Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Have you looked at Cisco? Raptor Networks? Juniper? Allied Telesyn? Have you talked to a line provider such as Sprint or AT&T for advice? Or a systems vendor? Did you even do a Google search?

Cisco provides, for example, the 3750 line of routers from 12-48 Ethernet 10/100 ports that connect via a XENPAK module to 10Gb SMF.

    There are any number of routers and Layer 3 switches from Cisco, Foundry, Juniper, Force 10 and others that can accomplish this. As the previous person pointed out, they've all got 10Gbps uplink ports - just install the proper XENPAK or SFP module for the SMF and you're ready to roll.

    I checked the HP site and found core, distribution, and even edge layer three switches that will handle 10G single mode modules. Naturally the edge switch doesn't handle BGP but it does do OSPF. Talk to your favorite vendor and find out which class of switch you need. Given this kind of variety, you should be able to work out which is best. rt

    Try the Cisco 7600 or the Cisco 12410. Juniper is another option for you.
