Anyone remember the 11.2 and 11.3 [and non 11.1CC] days? Cisco had huge issues with IOS stability, and its was around about this time that juniper and a few less successful others appeared. Cisco changed something and things got significantly better - I'd look at that as revenue loss prevention :-). Regards, Neil.
