bigger than juniper?
I thought juniper's switching business would still be bigger, but maybe not.
As a customer/fan/user of Extreme's gear(almost exclusively) for the past 13 years I'm pretty happy to see this, certainly should give them a bit more clout.
I really admire their rejection of the arcane IOS-like interface that is so complicated and have a UI that is significantly easier to manage and doesn't make me want to gouge my eyes out with an ice pik.
That and ESRP is my favorite L2/L3 network protocol, nothing else like it that I know of. I was rather dismayed when TRILL came out(or is still coming out?? not sure if the standard is complete) and it was layer 2 only.
I wonder if Enterasys uses broadcom chips as well, or something else?
