I am hoping to get some peoples opinions on Alcatel-Lucent routers. We are looking at the 7750 SR line and the 7450 ESS line. We are currently a Cisco shop but these would be deployed in a completely new network delivering mostly MPLS based services and DIA. Any comments are welcome, good and bad.

Very good routers. We have been using them for several years now. Very solid product, and very easy to setup services: ie vprn/ vpls/ epipe, etc.

The qos on the box is very scalable. I could talk more about them off line with you or discuss more over phone.

I'll have to second everything everyone is saying. Absolutely pleased
with everything about them. Just wish I had more 7750s instead of
