About a year ago we decided it was time to look at our organically grown network infrastructure. Due to mergers and acquisitions it had put on some weight around the middle. Operating a network predominantly build around the Cisco portfolio, and hence pretty much unfamiliar with what else was available in the world of networking, we set out
on a path to find a suitable replacement. So for the past year we have evaluated products and solutions from many vendors amongst others Alcatel-Lucent, Cisco, Juniper, MRV, Transmode and the likes. While going through the motions I came to some observations that I’d like to share with you.
Exploring the vision for the networking industry and the issues shaping its future.
