[c-nsp] Outdoor-hardened metro service platform?

Dear all,

weirdly, the archives don't seem to handle this use case, thus I am
starting a new thread.

We are using a mix of C6500 and ME3600 to collect Metro services
(plain Internet upstream, BGP, OSPF, M/VPLS P and PE, QinQ, ideally
service instances).

As our network grows, we are increasingly faced with outdoor POPs
being the only viable choice.

That means
* condensing humidity
* wide temperature ranges
* short unit depths

Given the requirements above, what would be a decent hardware platform
for us? Both new and near-EoL equipment would be fine.
