Would Arista 7280R work?  Gets you 48+ 10gig and a couple QSFP ports even in the cheapest model.  I believe it has the features you want.  Haven’t done MPLS with it, but I’ve got some running OSPF/OSPFv3 with no issues.

    Hey Nanog,
    Looking for a new metroE Edge switch that has more that 10x 10G ports. I am having a hard time finding anything worthwhile without buying a full blown ASR9K Chassis or another vendor's chassis.
    MEF compliant
    1-2U small foot print
    10G Ports will be used for ENNI's and UNI Ports
    Prefer MPLS support for L2VPN's (EoMPLS and VPLS)
    QOS per Sub interface\vlan on a ENNI
    Cost effect 10G Ports
    100G Not required
    Looking at the
    ASR920's - Great box for 1G but not enough 10G Ports Only 4
    NCS5001/NCS5501 - New\unproven\probably buggy, Lacking some features & QOS issues :/
    ASR900 - Looks good, but was hoping for a smaller foot print. If I remember right the 8x10G Cards can't go in every slot.
    Any other platforms I should be looking at?
    Ciena, Brocade, Juniper?
    Thanks in advance!
