The BroadSoft Network Server is basically a Re-direct Server based on  
its configuration.

I'm happy to be 'shot-down' but I would class it as a product to be  
used to front the BroadSoft Application Server clusters (Class5), but  
BroadSoft are not really a 'Class4' type product.   For example on a  
NS you can't :
    Generate CDRs (its a redirect server)
    Have any concept of routing based on load (its a redirect server)

BroadSoft do now support xen-virtualised deployment for small qtys (ie  
like... 15k ent/30k res subs) on a 2 or 3 boxes.

Looking closely at your 'list' a pair of acme's in HA might probably  
do the trick, depending on how complex you wanted things.   ACME's  
SBCs are a nice bit of kit to have in your infrastructure...

Coupling some ACMEs (for edge) and OpenSER (for core) could give you  
some pretty sweet capabilities.
