And, for metro network, it may be reasonable to spend time in QA'ing and configuration and select non-cisco solution - because it is a very big project. But it is exceptional case. > > PPS.

How can you advocate a switch which you seem > to know so little about? I just never tried to configure 'traffic-shape' on it, so I do not know. It is great switch for it's niche. Metro LAN's is not standard switch niche, it is very special network. As I said above, non-cisco solution can paid off for this. > > -- > Mikael Abrahamsson email: firstname.lastname@example.org >
