A two year old test with XR's doing 3 million routes.

1 million routes advertised on lower end RSP720. (Somehow, with 4 GB 
route processor memory, I think that's conservative).

And it's not like bigger carriers don't have Ixia's or Spirent boxes 
lying around to verify this, or wouldn't make the vendor rep bring one 
in to prove it.
