  1. I’d argue the crown jewel for RedBack is still NetOps. The self service swinging door bandwidth on demand demo at the last NCTA show was very compelling.

    Granted, I had thought RedBack was going under or away but they appear to be hanging in there.

    Juniper’s SDX is a similar approach to this self service goal.

    Cisco competes on this front with their (P-Cube acquisition) SCE platform. What makes this device interesting is the plant agnostic way this works.

    I’d lump Sandvine PTS in that agnostic mix as well.
