RE: GSR, 7600, Juniper M?, oh my!

It's really nice as a heater too, particularly a dual AC loaded with legacy blades. Other possible uses for a 7500 include a temperature sensor (http://arneill-py.sacramento.ca.us/mrtg/router-temp.html). My views on the original question: Cisco vs. Juniper: Whatever some people might say, everyone that uses both will tell you that the real picture is not Cisco=100% crap and Juniper=100% perfect :-) Besides, if you're a Cisco shop it's hard to find sound arguments to have only one or two Junipers (common business sense: twice the training, each one rejecting responsibility on the other, more difficult to find JunOs experts than IOS experts, etc...). 7600 vs. GSR: These are not the same boxes. There is stuff that the 7600 won't do, but there's also stuff that the GSR won't do in terms of aggregating a bunch of disparate links together. Michel.
