Hi Eric, A year or 2 ago, I did a good bit of work looking at various
MPLS-capable-PE boxes as I was looking to replace the investment of Cisco
ME3600's that couldn't keep up the pace of our FTTH 10 gig link
expansions... that ME3600 only had (2) 10 gig ports.

Several links below are just a quick search I did on google to find some of
this topics/discussions from the community.

Subject: 10G MetroE 1-2U Switch 

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!
