I can see that *everybody* is missing the point on Peter's exercise. 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 potential 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 do it between their facilities? If one guy can do it to a *house* it must not be that hard. However, telcos with transport groups of 1000s can't pull this off, this little project states volumes.
There may be some telco's out there that don't know these types of technologies are out there. But for many, they are quiet aware. The fact is 10G seems a lot more economically feasible right now. Maybe if 40G, OC768 WDM line cards didn't cost over a quarter million dollars each there would be more deployments of it. The rate and cost of facility upgrades are far surpassing the means to make the ROI models work.
