Core router bakeoff?

That sounds like salesspeak. I've used lots of cabletron hubs and such
over the years, but they never seemed to have real routers.

They just released in Las Vegas their new line of "SmartSwitch Routers" ...
I recently read an independant comparison, and they were "faster" than Cisco.

I don't know about reliability, functionalities, etc ... I haven't had much
experience with these.
