Yep, we pair 2 x MX204s with 2 x EX4300s for 1G optics and higher. Just migrating from a pair of MX5's to this set up. > The short answer is it's complicated. > You got to compare the probabilities of different failure scenarios, > probabilities of brown failures and see if it's worth spending a significant > extra for a resilient RE, ideally you'd just use 204s in pairs if necessary. As above. Recommended. For pricing, a license to light up a 10GB port on an MX5 was the same price as buying a MX204.... _______________________________________________ juniper-nsp mailing list email@example.com https://puck.nether.net/mailman/listinfo/juniper-nsp
