Gee, let's outsource all your networks to Cisco and get rid of our "expensive" in-house talent. As if we don't have a steady drumbeat of how well that has worked in the past. Sounds to my ears something right out of Larry Ellison's house. I've no problem with AT&T getting the shaft: I've a problem with their customers getting the shaft. As a prime example from history, IBM used to make the same argument as well. Just let us integrate your disparate hardware for you and we'll support you into the future. That's gone by the wayside as a result of IBM shooting themselves in the groin in a death by redundancies.
