Target[cisco_generic_ip_traffic]: at

# BANDWIDTH: How many bytes per second can this port carry. Since most links are
 rated in bits per second, you
# need to divide their maximum bandwidth (in bits) by eight (8) in order to get
bytes per second.

MaxBytes[cisco_generic_ip_traffic]: 12500000
Options[cisco_generic_ip_traffic]: bits, unknaszero
Title[cisco_generic_ip_traffic]: Router 7200
PageTop[cisco_generic_ip_traffic]: <H1>Router 7200</H1>
