The days of requiring BLSR or UPSR on circuits is over. WCOM / MFS rarely provided proper 1:1 APS even though their contracts required it.
Service Providers today are selling circuits publicly at a discount so as to not provide APS.
Service providers that are selling data (and not circuits) provide their protection at Layer 2 or Layer 3.
The days of bellcoresque protection are numbered.
your OPINION coming from experience with all of these vendor's equipment and a scientific approach to evaluating in a bake-off environment no doubt
Yes... be on the lookout for that core router from ALA, brought to you by engineers that can't get jobs anywhere else. Who's #5, Nexabit!!? Bwahahahaha!
Perhaps you are just confused here, this isn't the coffee machine story...
Froggy, stop taking those drugs. Alcatel??? Avici??? you must be kidding. Those guys cannot even take 1% of the market from cisco. You are a funny guy.
AVCI: if its product was so good, wouldn't ALA/NT/LU/etc. just buy them and start selling their product.
NT is reselling JNPR. NT is selling their stake in AVCI.
Analyst from BREAN MURRAY intimating that CSCO's product is just vaporware. awaiting lightreading's investigation
never claimed that, if you have actual data please share with us
what do you know about the ALA engineers? did they come from NN ?
