RE: Cisco CRS-1 vs Juniper 1600 vs Huawei NE5000E
We're Juniper right now, but we're looking at the Foundry MLX line for possible future sites due to cost/performance. So I'd be interested in folks' experience with Foundry's Terathon gear and associated IronWare revs. Its supposed to be a lot better than the JetCore stuff (cam-trashing problems etc.) but it'd be nice to hear what folks are seeing in real life.

Any experiences of Foundry routing w/ more complex protocols (PIM, MSDP, various IPv6 stuff)? The last time we tried running non-C/J as a router was a very Extreme experience and we swore never again to touch similar router underdogs in the future. -- Pekka Savola "You each name yourselves king, yet the Netcore Oy kingdom bleeds."
