Hi,

I'd rather say that 7750 (routing) & 7450 (L3 switching) are good boxes, very good for 
MPLS and even better if you also build a core and get the 5620 SAM application (for 
management in case of MPLS services network), non major failures... but it has bugs, who 
doesn't ?

Nic.

Imagine life is a software release when on completion of your own type approval the software does what it says on the tin? Not even minor bugs -> no bugs nada ziltch negatory nien etc.
