Anyone who can match a Juniper equivalent of the attached specs of an advanced IP/MPLS router ?
And is it possible to have such detailed Datasheets (as attached) for Juniper routers? So far, the M/MX/T series don't show as much details.
Any input will be much appreciated.

This seems like something that should be put on on the street in the form of an RFP, and/or speak with sales reps / VARs from the companies with whom you are interested in evaluating their products.

Kudos are always appreciated.

Given your relatively high 10-gig port count (24 per my reading of the RFP), I would think you would have to go with an MX-240 with 2 x 16-port 10-gig line cards and redundant routing engines. I did not do a complete anaylsis of all of the features, but that is what I read. The requirements are really quite confusing though as you have two seperate interface sections, one with 20 ports of 1-gig / 10-gig, and another that says 4 ports of 10-gig... Also, with 24-ports of 10-gig, the throughput requirements are only 600Mbps??? Something here just doesn't add up. If the 20-ports can all be 1-gig, and there really only needs to be 4 ports of 10-gig, then the midrange MX series might fit the bill. Something like an MX-40 or MX-80.

Good catch on the RE failover. I didn't look at all the requirements, but something still doesn't really add up on the whole requirement list to me.

Sounds like the EX8200 might be targetted here - very low counts for IP Route scale but still want 1 Million Macs.
Also if I remember correctly you need to have an MX960 fully loaded with SCBs to get the full 1 Million MACs with redundancy???
