Fantastic news! As a long time user of Blue Coat and Packeteer, I am pretty excited about this. The Packeteer traffic management technologies is a long way ahead of the Cisco queueing strategy, and the Blue Coat product set has plenty of features that hold Cisco at bay in the WAN Acceleration (previously known as Traffic Management….sigh…queue the whale song)
Let hope this completes quickly and cleanly.

Thank goodness Nortel didn’t get an oar in.
