[c-nsp] Upgrading to 40G

Have the networks changed that much? 
Some time ago we used to push L2 from mainframes on T/R or SDLC (I hated SDLC always had to guess the settings) over WAN with DLSW+. 
Now PWs and VPLS is the buzz. 

Yeah the good old 4500 was actually the first router I have played with, that was in Cisco networking academy at secondary school some 14 years ago.

2503 made a good core router, back in the day...  (we had two! A 2503 and a 4500, with a E1 between them...)

This newfangled 2900 stuff, nobody needs that much RAM in a router!
