The 7600 is actually quite a poor choice as an edge device (any edge)  
due to its caveats regarding NetFlow, ACLs, and uRPF.  It's far better  
suited to a core role, where it can handle mpps running without the  
need for these critical edge features.

         Unfortunately, inefficiency scales really well.
