We are looking at an HP MSR50-40  (JD433A) as an enterprise perimeter gateway router that will be attached to two unique ISPs using BGP.  Enterprise size: 1500 persons.  The JD433A will be located outside our firewall.

We are fishing for pros and cons of this product.

The biggest con that I see so far is the limitation of routing tables size. 100,000 routes for IPv4 and another 100,000 for IPv6. You wont be able to carry a full internet routing table from either provider. This may not be a bad thing if all you care about is ECMP across two default routes. You may be able to accept routes within the ISPs ASN and those directly attached. This would allow for traffic to take the best AS path to it's destination.

If you're going to have traffic beyond 3Gbps, then you'll want to consider a different router. However this may not be a problem either, I just don't know the particulars of your usage on the Internet.

Could you elaborate how the Internet access is used at your organization? This may better help determine if this is the right system for your needs.

Our ISP connection speeds are 100Mbps each.  At present, we do not download any bgp routes, we let the ISP manage the bgp routing.

Our daily bandwidth average is 3Gbps each direction.

You should be fine with this router then, that being the case.
