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.

hth,
Dan
