NANOG Digest, Vol 36, Issue 61

I would agree w/ the HP vs. Cisco comment from Greg Whynott

Cisco has refused to help without a huge pricetag in the past.
We have migrated many of our customers off of Cisco gear to mitigate future issues for exactly this reason.

HP is a great partner!

If you need a router check out vYatta or pfSense - pfSense for the low end of course. - Both are open - Both have paid support and we are very happy with them.
