Hi Gert,

  Regarding using 6724 and a DFC, what would be the limitations using
6724 without DFC?

  DFC comes as optional, same as extra memory for the card.

For that application you wouldn't even need a 720, you could get a Sup32
and it comes with 8 gig-E ports (or two 10G), just add SFP's, and it's
save quite a bit less money vs the 720.

This is the main reason why we went for 7606's with Sup720's over the
Juniper routers (I believe they were M20's).  I needed at least eight
Gig-E ports on both of them, so when I was presented with a quote for
basically 16 * $20,000 less 10-15% for just the Gig-E ports, my decision
was pretty easy. ;-)

The Gig-E ports on the Sup's will do full line rate, and if you start
exceeding things you can add a 6724 and a DFC, and you're still way
under the cost of the Junipers.
