[AusNOG] Cisco 7606 hardware advice.

Hi Will,

The last three can all be used for Optical Transport Network (OTN) and have various features for this on the different models. If you're not planning on doing any of that (which it doesn't sound like you are) then you only need the base ES+ card which should do all of the things you have listed.

You should also know that there are two licenses for ES20+ cards, "IP Base" & "IP Advanced". In theory you need the Advanced license to run MPLS on the card. In practise this is based on the honour system at this point and the license is not policed (but this could change in future IOS releases).
