Re: Network for Sale

Im particularily intrigued by the Opnix customer care practices. A
late-nite call to the Opnix NOClet on duty to find out why a certain
netblock was unable to connect to the Opnix webserver(s) received the
response "Are you a customer? I dont recognize your voice..." How does
this scale beyond 10 customers?

On a semi-technical front, what are you using to monitor RTT and how do
you switch to new paths when you see that a current path is
congested/latent/etc? How do you adapt to changes without thrashing, and
how do you handle multi-homed customers, particularily those that are
multihomed to multiple Opnix PNAPS^H^H^H^(oops, wrong marketing hype 
engine enabled)POPS?
