I'm currently running Ciscos at the edge, but Extremes in the core for
our datacenter hosting - iBGP only, mind.
The Extremes are a little odd, in that one refuses to talk BGP at all
(!) but other than that I've not had any real problems.
Unless I had a specific reason not to use "known kit" (read: Juniper
or Cisco) at the edge, I'd probably stick with the usual - but that's
more out of familiarity than genuine worries.
