Hello All,

Has anyone out there got any experience with Laruel Networks' ST200 Service Edge Router (broadband aggregation router)? (http://www.laurelnetworks.com/products/st200.html)

We are currently in the process of choosing a broadband aggregation platform for our PPPoA subscribers (to progressively replace our by now exhausted 7206VXRs) and Laurel's ST200 claims to support as many as 100K simultaneous PPP subscribers with services enabled, and, best of all (?) at a very competitive price (when comparing it with other alternatives)....

We won't have the time (nor the resources, regretfully) to settle up a proper test bed to bech mark this brand new box, and, to be honest, that claim of 100K simultaneous subscribers + services, resembles too much to the hype I've previously listened from many other broadband aggregation platforms vendors...

Given the situation, any feedback will be sincerely appreciated.

Best regards,
