We looked at their CER/CES line back in 2009/2010 when we
were scoping for kit to deploy our MPLS In The Access
That time, the box only did 512,000 entries in the FIB, but
clearly the newer iron has had an upgrade on the inside :-).
This is good!
Inevitably, we settled for Cisco's ME3600X, after realizing
we didn't need to carry a full table in the Access (and
could still provide IP Transit services in the Access
easily), and at the time, even though the Cisco was much
newer, the mid-term feature road map was better.
