Wow! I guess $450 million in pocket change from Cisco can get just about anyone to sell out. I've been telling people for some time that Cisco SWAN doesn't hold a candle to Airespace's hybrid switching architecture. A year from now, don't be surprised to see an Airespace 4100 switch to be converted to a 6500 series blade. I've been knocking Cisco and praising Airespace for Wireless LAN topology, but from this point on I guess today's news means I'll be praising Cisco either way.
