After a couple of days leave I came back to find my inbox full of messages about a marketing campaign which Cisco Networks had put together specifically targeting Juniper by name, claiming they “over-promised, under-delivered” on their QFabric technology.
If you really want a laugh the link is: www(dot)overpromisesunderdelivers(dot)net .
This struck me (and many others) as an odd approach. Cisco has shone the light of publicity on a major competitor on the eve of the launch of a major new piece of technology; QFabric. This forms part of the “Project Stratus” which has been on-going since 2009.
