The "Tier-n" argument is never-ending. I think the bottom-line is that (no
offense) marketing people like it, engineers hate it. :)

When discussing Opnix, I won't use the "Tier-0" stuff. I prefer to just
stick with discussing our Internet/route intelligence technologies -- not
basic network architecture.

In the end, given all the "Tier-n" hype (good word, BTW), its probably
best to just ignore any sentence with the word "tier" in it and read the
rest. :)
