Can an ERS 5520 support BGP?
« on: July 23, 2015, 08:06:10 PM »
Trying to figure out if a 5520 can support a simple BGP config ... I have a Cisco 3750 (not G) that I I'd like to swap out.  The Cisco is running BGP on a couple ports for anycast testing of some software we develop (dead basic config), but I need to replicate it somehow to retire the Cisco.

I've looked around, and I think the answer to this is no (at least on 6.3.4), but I wanted to ask some people that actually know about this hardware/software before I give up. :)

My alternative is to vlan the ports off and trunk them over to a Cisco that supports it elsewhere on the network; and then just handle it remotely ... but that's not really preferred.

Sorry, but no.  While the v6.3.x code stream does have support for iBGP built in to it, it is only the 5600's and not the older 5500's that have the memory and CPU power to do it.  The 5500's can do static routing, RIP routing and if you have a license for it, OSPF routing.
