EX4600/QFX5100 are relatively new switchs, and use newer asics. I can 
say there were not completly bug free... But the situation is moving 
fastly and newer release fix a log of bugs. But they have 40G ports and 
higher density than EX4550.

EX4550 in the other hand are not perfect, but stable and less expensive.
For aggregation swithes with only 10G ports I will go with EX4550.
