Cisco NCS5501 as a P Router

Hi Radu-Adrian, have you done any MPLS PE functions on the NCS5001 ? MPLS/VPLS L2VPN, or L3VPN ?

I'm asking because I tried a NCS5001 in my lab about a year or 2 ago and it was pretty bad.  At which point I was told to only try it as a P box from a Cisco which point it dropped from my consideration since I needed to replace lots of Cisco ME3600's with mpls edge functions, and I ended up settling on the Juniper ACX5048.

I'm wondering if Cisco improved that NCS5001 in more recent versions of XR to included functional MPLS L2 and L3 vpn's.
