    The only thing not attractive is the price ;-)

    Where else can you get 128 10Gb ports for that price with 1 million routes supported?

    Nowhere. But it still doesn't mean it isn't expensive. It's just the least expensive ;-)

    This drops the cost to $1370/port plus the SFP+ optics. Let's round it to $2k.
