      Think the poll has gone wrong on its percentages?

      Its showing Juniper having 100% along with others having a smaller percentage :S

            A small part of me dies every time I hear someone say they like Belkin networking gear.

            They make top quality cables and similar accessories, and thats what they should stick to

                I am of course joking, Cisco here

                We have defected to Juniper for some switching however!

                  It's quite impressive just how much uptake of Juniper kit there seems to be lately... More impressivly, Cisco don't seem to be overly worried about it!

                      Someone tried to tell the Cisco CEO about the Juniper threat, but they couldn't find him under his massive pile of money

                          Cisco had $46.7bn cash at the end of Q2 FY 2012, up $2.3bn from Q1 FY 2012. I don't think they have a cash problem
