"‎2 NIC module slots supporting 1/10/40G/Fiber/Copper/Bypass"

Get one of those with a server class processor and and it's a server that looks like a spiffy network appliance. 
‎Very general purpose if general purpose is what you need, quagga / openbgpd on ‎bsd, yes. And you can bake additional services onto it.

Does that lanner even do SFP+? Dont see it listed in the specs. Looks like 4210 has
2x SFP+, though their 'performance' level products look more in line with 'useful'.


As for the microtics, wonky user interface, so very unciscolike (i guess thats
my problem - but the GUI thing feels like a toy), but for their midrange models I found
their bgp convergence times pretty poor on their low end cpus...

What do you put on the lanner? OpenBGPd? Quagga? Also looking for a 10G solution
here, low power (than a full ASR stack..) is my goal for 5-6 full bgp feeds.
