We have a decently-trained Engineering and Operations team. Much of the
provisioning is cookie-cutter, so the chances of mistakes only happen
when there is a deviation in the process, e.g., when a new feature or
service is being introduced, which is the exception and not the rule.

Even Junos is quite easy to upgrade. One, maybe two reboot steps, and no
need for complicated SMU's. This is why we are fine with the MX204 in
the Access.
