OK. Please show me a “switch” that will terminate Layer 3 GRE tunnels..

 

If it does GRE then it is making Layer 3 forwarding decisions which is a router function. It may be built into a switch as well, but it is still a router.

1. It's not a switch (so don't expect "switch pricing").
2. It doesn't offer 12 x 10GE ports.

And I believe this has been mentioned earlier in the same thread...
