We've started ordering them as our new peering and border routers.
However, we shall also be using them as high-capacity Metro-E routers,
where customers need 10Gbps hand-off, with a 100Gbps backbone.

I would want to police at that subinterface (unit) level to limit traffic for obviously what they buy.

I'm sure it will be - it's an MPC7 in a cage :-).
