I can see that *everybody* is missing the point on Peter's exercise.&nb sp; Clearly this is to show to the telcos of the world that you can upgrade to a native IP infrastructure and absorb the existing transport into the router with a minimal effort.  There was a post here from someone that was there that explained how simple it was.   This is HUGE!  This has the p otential to completely disrupt telco transport dinosaur groups *and* reshape the future.  Taking it to his mom's house is just a poke in the telco eye, he is making fun of them.  This then begs the question why can they d o it between their facilities?  If one guy can do it to a *house* it must n ot be that hard.  However, telcos with transport groups of 1000s can't pull this off, this little project states volumes.
