Just try to bring up another point. Anyone has thought about Gigabit ethernet
Prominet's Cajun switch has a 45GB backplane. Supports up to 24 full-duplex
Gigabit ethernet ports or 120 full-duplex fastethernet ports, or a mix
of both. The price is also very reasonable.
Guess that'd be too much of a change... If this is not good for MAE-E,
it might be good for some other new exchanges.
