Title: Nortel Secure Router 3120, Competitive Performance Evaluation versus Cisco Systems ISR 2821 and ISR 3825

Publication date:   01 November 2005
Document number:    205146


Nortel commissioned The Tolly Group to evaluate its Secure Router 3120, a wide-area network router with integrated network services such as Quality of Service, Network Address Translation and Access Control Lists.

Tolly Group engineers measured the multilink Point-to-Point Protocol (PPP) zero-loss throughput of the Nortel Secure Router 3120 with Quality of Service (QoS),Network Address Translation (NAT) and Access Control List (ACL) features enabled. Nortel also directed The Tolly Group to evaluate the Nortel 3120 versus a Cisco Systems 3825 Integrated Services Router and 2821 Integrated Services Router. Testing was performed in September/October 2005.

Test results show that the Nortel Secure Router 3120 delivers superior throughput for the majority of packet sizes tested, especially with regards to smaller packet sizes (64 bytes to 256 bytes), generally delivering up to 4X greater throughput than the Cisco devices tested.
