Title: Enterasys Networks XSR-1850 Security Router versus Cisco Systems, Inc. 2651XM Multiservice Router Competitive Performance Evaluation

Publication date:   13 November 2002
Document number:    202155


Enterasys Networks commissioned The Tolly Group to evaluate its XSR-1850 Security Router, and to compare its performance against that of a Cisco Systems, Inc. 2651XM router in a LAN-to-LAN environment designed to stress the system's processing power to the maximum allowable bandwidth. While security routers are typically deployed in conjunction with a WAN, the series of tests attempts to gauge the processing power of the devices; therefore, tests were conducted in a LAN-to-LAN, two-port router configuration using 100 Mbits/ interfaces. The Tolly Group conducted zero-loss bidirectional (full-duplex) Layer 3 throughput tests and zero-loss Layer 3 throughput when QoS and Access Control Lists (ACLs), respectively, were enabled.
