In the same price range as the MX80 there is the Alcatel SRa-4/8 router.
These will do 100g in and out, and handle full tables.  You get redundant
control modules vs. a single on the juniper.

BGP is multi-threaded on the box, does RPKI for route verification, and it's
got extensive HQoS functionality amongst other features.
