Is it reliable (enough)? Is it cost-effective? Remember that there are at least three other vendors who may have solutions that will beat Cisco's capability but because this *IS* a competitive market we aren't likely to hear much about their technology until they are sure they can get their solutions to market and capture a reasonable market share before anyone can copy them. The 3 I am thinking of are N-Cubed, Bay Networks and IBM. In fact there could even be others out there keeping really hush hush about what they are doing. Remember, there was a time when people like Vadim were complete unknowns to the net/tech community so you can't always predict what will happen based upon what the well-known people are doing.
