[j-nsp] ACX for subscriber aggregation

Hi list,

We run a bunch of fixed wireless broadband towers where we bring MPLS right to the site. Subscribers are terminated right there. Today we use Cisco 7301 in a PPPoE LAC capacity for dynamic subscribers and deal with BGP sessions to higher end customers that have managed CE.

We're looking at the ACX1100 to replace said 7301 and additional switches. Because of the lack of PPPoE-related features we're considering using DHCP for subscriber access. 

Does anyone have any experience with the ACX routers doing this kind of thing? Particularly the DHCP relay side, features supported in IRBs, and practical experience with the MPLS features is what I'm wondering about. We'd load it up with maybe half a dozen VRFs.
