So unofficially more than 1Gb is possible?

All inclusive, we have found the J2320 to be cheaper than Cisco's 7201
router for route reflector applications (even after purchasing the route
reflection licenses, something I'm not too fond of from Juniper, but

We are looking to use them, as a start, in smaller PoP's where we
probably have only a handful of full routes and quite a number of VPN
NLRI (L2, L3), and only need to use a couple RU's of rack space.

I only wish they (officially) supported more than 1GB of memory.
