Hi list

Does anyone have (or know somebody who has) real-life experience of HP
A-series (former Huawei and H3C) high-end routers in service provider
environment? From the specs they look very good (both features and
performance) but the specs don't tell everything and nothing can
replace real-life experience.

The features I'm interested in include (not in any specific order)
- v4 and v6 routing
- BGP (full feed)
- OSPF and IS-IS
- MPLS(-TE) P/PE functionality (RSVP, L3VPN, VPLS)

For example this box

Any info or pointers greatly appreciated.

Rgds,
Mark
