I have a class B network with with 3 core switches that handle about 20,000 nodes.  
How big of a box do I need to handle this?  I am looking at 1 box for each 2 core 
switches and a 2 boxes for the main core switch, which has a 90 Mb/s Internet 
connection and a 45 Mb/s I2 connection.  Also, can I take the data from the 4 
machines, and route it all back to a main "management console"?
Thanks for the help.-
