These are great routers. I used the MLX16s in the same capacity, before the newer model MLXe with upgraded management card specs. Should work just fine for that.

Thank you,

We are looking at Brocade MLX routers to act as Internet edge routers.  They will initially handle two to four full tables, plus peering on an IX.  The price is certainly attractive.  We are coming from Cisco 7600 series devices.  Can anyone comment about their use of them?  Are you happy with them?  Any gotchas?  Particularly we are interested in convergence time to full FIB population.
