I will concede ignorance to alternatives, which I'm sure others will be able to inform on, but is the ASR1001-X similarly out of reach or missing something that you're looking for?

Alternatively, have you thought about grey market?  Someone like Dominic at http://www.inveho.nz/ might be able to find something cost-effective for you.

Hi all

The time has come to replace my poor old Cisco 7301 and the quote I got for an ASR1002-HX made my eyes water. Still waiting for a Juniper quote but the general discussion seemed like similar numbers.

Are there any other reliable options out there that don't cost more than my first house?
