Hi DirtyDingus...

You seem to hit the nail right on the head.....

But you should see what Cisco/NT are seeing ...

Sure RBAK cannot singly compete again CSCO/NT but it is not RBAK that is going to compete,

it is

Vinod Khosla against CSCO... Did you read the article in Forbes about him where they mention that he is putting together a force that will easily beat out CSCO/NT....

Your last line is justified here....

Vinod khosla is sitting on broad of JNPR/CORV/RBAK/Cosine/Zaffire...
So RBAK will be partnering with JNPR for routing, CORV for long haul for Zaffire/ONIS for metro DWDM....

In fact, if see Vinod's vision, it is same as you stated on the last line.....
But his story turned around when Cerent was sold to CISCO of which he was opposed .. Read the article on lightreading.com or else it would have been a slam dunk for Vinod...

RBAK for Metro-edge/Metro Core(future product)
JNPR for routing
CORV for long-haul...
Zaffire/ONIS for Metro DWDM..

(Game over)
