If you don't need full Bgp me3600x has all the bells and whistles.

If you do need a full table then you will need to go with something from
the asr range.

The only issues I have with the me3600x is the depth of the machine, only 2
sfp+ ports and the ios is not completely mature yet. Though that may have
got a lot better in the past half year.

Best regards
