    We have used our Lucent Avaya P882R backbone switch and its side
    switches P333 familiy for years and with full satisfaction until the
    "End of Sale" announcement for December 2004.

    We are now in the market for a replacement for it with an equivalent
    or a better, if possible, system.

    Any suggestions ?

    The short list of features of P882R is ;

    Backplane : 139 Gbps
    Switching : 106 Mpps
    Routing : 106 Mpps
    Maximum Gigabit Ports : 128
    Maximum 10/100 Ports (Telco connectors) : 768
    Maximum 10/100 Ports (RJ-45) : 384
    VLANs : 1000
    Address Forwarding Table Entries : 24,000
    Routes : 16,000
    Maximum Flows : 2,560,000

    For a complete features list, the datasheet of P882R can be accessed
    from :

    Thanks for any suggestions in advance.
