Anyone Deployed Ascend's GRF IP Switch?

My 7206s reboot in well under a minute (the -p- builds fit right into
bootflash, so no need for a boot-then-think-then-load-flash-then-think

Once up, they transfer full routes bidirectionally with 7505s in
10-15 seconds.

Our BFR:s (cisco 12000) reboots in less than a minute and if it's a
box reload the outage is short enough so that downstream IBGP speakers
maintain their BGP sessions that are routed through the reloaded box.
