TheRouter as a border router in a service provider network
One of several border router running under linux was replaced by TheRouter since there were not enough resources to handle current traffic uning Linux kernel. TheRouter installed even on a very cheap hardware now forwards traffic without any problem.
TheRouter is connected to a core switch using LACP link aggregation port (4x10G) and forwards traffic between several VLANs according to the routing table containing a full table/view (700k) routes. BGP connections are handled by FRR routing software.
