Recomended HW to run cake and fq_codel?

I'm trying to set up a lab for testing schedulers for xDSL, fiber and coax (and possibly LTE) CPE devices.  We have several Braodcom and Intel based CPE's with the typical hw accelerated schedulers which I would like to benchmark agains cake and fq_codel.  If there is a complete'ish system I could buy, that would be nice.  I am aware that I can run into driver issues, large buffers etc on a converted linux PC.  So something like Ubiquti EdgeRouter, is that a reccomended platform?

My end goal (if the tests show cake/fq_codel will have significant gains over traditional schedulers) is to have our CPE vendors include cake/fq_codel running in slow path.  So at least we can use it for low speed accesse.  And possibly even influence the chipset vendors to start paying attention to bufferbloat.
