Wouldn’t it be nice…
Have you ever been frustrated by delays in activating new
applications and services..?
• Wouldn’t it be nice to seamlessly deploy applications across
multiple Data Centers in an instant..?
Have you ever experienced an outage due to human-error fault
during change..?
• Wouldn’t it be nice to never again having to configure the Core of
the network..?
Have you ever wondered why, with all of this complexity, that IT
still struggles to respond to the increased rate of change..?
• Wouldn’t it be nice to remove entire layers of complexity and
deliver real business-centric agility..?

Modular Competitive Landscape
Cisco: Catalyst 6500-E claims to
preserve investment for Core;
Catalyst 4500-E offers advanced
functions & performance for
Aggregation
HP ProCurve/3Com: 8200zl &
5400zl claims to provide the
performance/density/scalability
combined with low pricing to
build their networks
Juniper: EX 8200 claims to offer
high performance, line rate 10G &
common Juno OS
 6500-E has limited compatibility between Chassis,
Supervisors, Line Cards, & Software causing high TCO;
ERS 8600 provides excellent investment protection
 4500-E lacks the performance, 10G density & scalability
compared to ERS 8300 that offers higher performance &
10G port density
 It is true that 8200zl & 5400zl are priced lower than ERS
8600 & ERS 8300 but Customers pay big penalties for
getting less denser & resilient platforms as well as lower
performance
 The 3Com acquisition will add more advanced products
but product rationalization in the progress
 EX 8200 is a year old platform that competes more with
our VSP 9000 & will ship in 2H10. VSP 9000 will offer
much higher switching architecture, 10G port density &
ultra-resiliency.

Stackable Competitive Landscape
 Stacking capacity is limited, only 32Gbps for the 3750 and
Cisco: 3750 is the Stackable
option; the 3750-E offers
additional capacity; 2960 & 3560
are standalone-only
HP ProCurve/3Com: Broad range
offering typical but
unspectacular functionality;
3Com is more advanced but the
acquisition complicates things
marginally more for the 3750-E: compared to 1.152Tbps
for the ERS 5600, and even 32Gbps for the entry-level
2500
 Cisco places a lot of emphasis on Layer 3 at the Edge: this
increases complexity, cost, & makes restoration more
difficult
 ProCurve doesn’t offer any genuine Stacking, just
consolidated Management
 3Com products are more advanced, with real Stacking
 But the acquisition will ultimately force product
rationalization
 Stacking capacity on the 4200 is good and Layer 3 is
Juniper: EX 4200 is high-end &
Stackable; 2200 & 3200 are
Standalone; 2500 is a Top-ofRack option
strong across the board, however Juniper do not have any
unique high-availability solution
 Emphasis on L3 increases costs, complexity, and makes
restoration more difficult
 Warranty is very uncompetitive
