We are using the NetVanta 644 device because of its ability to handle 4 PRI connections coming from a PBX. The device will be using a blended circuit that has a direct Internet connection and an MPLS connection using BGP as a routing protocol. I am receiving the Unrecognized Command message if I type the vrf or router bgp 65000 command. I researched and saw in a matrix for firmware 13.1 that the firmware does not support VRF or BGP for this model. Is that correct or is there a way around that? Thanks.
Not supported. One possible alternative would be a TA908e third generation, depending on the loading of the PRIs. This unit will handle four physical PRIs but only has 60 DSP resources. If you're doing RTP-to-TDM conversions you would be limited to 60 simultaneous calls on the PRIs.
Alternatively you could front-end the 644 with a BGP and VRF-capable device.
Thanks for your reply. Looks like we're going to go with adding a Cisco router in front to do BGP and VRF and the ADTRAN behind it. I appreciate your help!
