Hello, I have that topology for MPLS network, and I want to know which devices is better cost effective, what type of equipment is best suited to the need, I'm going to run MPLS and I'm indicating if I can use the EX4600 or QFX5100 series, taking into account that the SRX do not have good 10G interface capacity and are very expensive.
Someone who has had experience in this series, who can use them to transport labels and connect directly to the client in vrf.
Thank you.

QFX5100 will be just fine for this.  The EX4600 is essentially the same box, but with slightly different software, and fewer shipping ports.  Both will run MPLS L3VPNs.


To be 100% sure, check the MPLS Limitations Page for the EX and QFX:

EX4600 and QFX5100 are fine in smaller scale environments.  Otherwise I would always recommend MX Series routers.
