Hmm, I would say: Today, regardless of whether you use switches or routers or both, if you're not making effective/correct internal-WAN load-balancing decisions, you're screwed (assuming you have enough internal redundancy/ bandwidth to run your network even with 100% optimal routing decisions). >Jim > >Ps.

Good, I was going to send you private e-mail to make clear that I was just on a religious ATM vs. Routed network thing - nothing personal. I'll still come down to visit after ISPCON. And I incuded [email protected] to get the opinion of others... Avi - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
