syntax. I think also that all of the platforms on which IOS-XR
runs (GSR, CRS-1/3, ASR9000) can all run full line rate IPv6 in
hardware, with features.
While much of the IOS-XR vrs JunOS is personal preference, IOS-XR has
one very cool feature. You can pass parameters in route policy. Many
networks maintain slightly different versions of policies like
"peer-in/peer-out" due to various load balancing or preference needs,
with a 5-15 stanza policy repeated over and over. When you have to
update one of the stanzas in all policies it becomes a big mess.
In IOS-XR, you can write a generic policy and then call with with
