As long as you stick with the 1.10.10 series of firmware, the EdgeRouter
series is pretty stable. I run an EdgeRouter Infinity (8 x 10G SFP+) at
home with both IPv4 and IPv6 BGP feeds on a CenturyLink Fiber+ connection.
You can get the original EdgeRouter Lite for sub $100 and it will have
no problem taking a full feed for both v4 and v6... However, better
choice is the EdgeRouter 4, which is a bit newer and much faster.
There's also the ER6P if you need something with more ports, or even the
ER12/12P if you want something with a built in network switch. Just
avoid the budget oriented ERX and ER10X which lack the RAM.
All of the ERs are low power consumption and Linux based with a
Vyatta/VyOS/Juniper-like CLI, so pretty easy to work with.
(I do Ubiquiti deployments, so can answer a lot of questions anyone
