Hi, I am interested in getting information about multihoming and the technology that can be used.
I will have 2 ISPs, already have one with IPs, and adding a second one. Plan to get it accomplished with BGP. What routers can you recommend?
Plan to get something that will allow me to upgrade to GigE if needed, but dont have a high budget for that.
What do you recommend?

BGP(Border Gateway Protocol)
is the key protocols use to achieve Internet connection redundancy.When you connect your network to two different Internet service providers, it is called multihoming. Multihoming provides redundancy and network optimization.
For more information go to link :

Hope it will help you.

Your providers probably won't let you announce their address space out of your other provider for a number of reasons.
One of the first things you'll have to look at doing is getting your own address space and an ASN from one of the RIR's.
In respect of router sizing, what are you familiar with configuration wise already?
