alas, i think the days of being able to deploy one type of "god box" swiss-army-knife router are passing.

depending on what it is that the router is planned to be "doing" defines its PPS requirements & what speeds/feeds you need to run various features at.

from http://www.merit.edu/mail.archives/nanog/2005-09/msg00635.html can you classify what functionality you see yourself as needing?

that pretty much sets the discussion as to whether you're after something that can be s/w-forwarding or not ...

pointers(private are ok) are appreciated - as well as -why- you think the
suggested boxen are likely candidates.
