I was wondering if anyone had any good or bad experiences with the EX8200 platform. Specifically how well it works as a core/ agg box running BGP / OSPF . This box would aggregate all customer L2 switches with .1q trunks to it. It would route all customer Vlans and act as the default gateway for customers. 

I would expect it to run OSPF and IBGP with my two M7i border routers. The big question is will it hold a full table? I see it can do 512k routes. 

I know the MX could do it, but its out of budget range at this time. 

Any information/experiences would be helpful.
