I think that the 7750SR routers are great and you won't be let down. We used to have an all Cisco network and I was skeptical at first but they have been great.

As for nss and nsr when we tested this by failing a cpm we saw less than 50 ms of traffic loss. I would see if you could go to either California or Canada to one of ALUs labs and have it demonstrated for you.

Hello fellow nanogers,
I am a long time user of Cisco gear and currently evaluating an alternative
for my network expansion. currently the one that looks like it will be able
to do the job iare Alcatel-Lucent 7710/7750 service routers.
I am looking for real life experience of those who have used it and what I
may need to watch out for (if anything) I have seen in some of their
documentation features like Non-stop Services (NSS) and Non-stop Routing
(NSR). are these features real world deployable.
oh, just to add I want to use the routers as P routers in my IP/MPLS core
