Edge Router (broadband aggregation router)?

This list being cisco-nsp it's kinda off-topic, may be NANOG would be a
better place to start... may be you have fear of the sales droids that lurk
around there ? :-)

No experience with Laurel, but I think you should also consider Juniper ERX.
As far as price goes, it seems to carry the same per user price tag of other
alternatives, and it has an architeture that can actually deliver the
services and performance it claims. If it can really deliver it, that's a
matter of software that went untested because the whole project I was
working on at the time has been dropped.
