You may want to take a look at this paper before choosing your NOS :
This described an OpenFlow SDN approach to dumb-down whitebox switches
as to fully avoid broadcast traffic, while performing as well as a
complex VPLS fabric.
This design is operating consistently on the Toulouse Internet Exchange
since 2015 using Pica8's gear.
So maybe a CLI and feature-full NOS will better suit your needs, but for
an IXP, the programmatic approach has demonstrated to be working just fine.
