Maybe the cheapest would be good old ASR9K6, -now with the advent of new chassis these should be pretty cheap
where each would have just a single A9K-RSP440-LT -that's 180G/slot upgradeable to 440G/slot (I'm pretty sure customer won't be pulling 200G)
and one 2x100GE and one 24x10GE card
and one power supply (though I'd double check if one is enough)
-you don't need any redundancy in a single box as there are going to be two boxes.
