One cannot rule it all
Intel is in network gear already.  On both the ASA 5500 series and the ASA 5550x series the only model that does not have an Intel processor is the 5505; the lowest end model.  On the Nexus 7k platform, what runs from the processor that is the control plane?  Yep, an Intel CPU.  In the ACE (application load balancing) what is in the ACE-30?  Yep, an Intel processor.  Where Intel is not, the embedded side like the ASA5505 where it is an AMD Geode processor.  Some of the newer Intel processors could replace it while taking marginally more power but better performance.  Their processor is also not in things like Access Points.  Sure there is room for Intel to grow, their sole intention has been x86 for everything.  One processor cannot do it all.

Re: Telco effect
Isn't Intel well-suited to the telcos' move to more COTS gear as part of the virtualizatoin trend?

Telco effect
Am I wrong with my notion that telco sales cycle issues and related challenges they cause for the network equipment vendors would have real impact at the chip supplier level, and could affect Intel's success getting the platform into new gear?
