Had a discussion with the manager of a large ISP in Turkey. He's a
transplanted Aussie.. He swears by them.. I believe he is running OC-12
links accross them at near full capacity.
My personal experience has been that they have both the engineering talent
and the experience (7+ years in the business) to pull it off. Their
products are logically built, utilize Linux at the core and they stand
behind their gurantee. If it doesn't work, they'll either fix it, or give
you your money back.
They are now keepers and developers of the VRRP project for Linux, and
have also defined a unified driver architecture called "Inetics" which
makes adding new hardware to Linux trivial.
I'm going to be attending a presentation by one of their core developers
at the Ohio Linuxfest on October 1st (http://www.ohiolinux.org). From the
website, here is the specific talk they will be giving:
"Quality of Service using Open Source Linux Tools
Doug Hass, Imagestream
With increasing penetration of wireless and broadband, service providers
must understand Quality of Service techniques and implement QOS on their
networks. A proper QOS design helps to avoid network bottlenecks caused by
converged voice/video/data services , broadband users, file sharing, and
other bandwidth-intensive applications. Without QOS, service providers are
especially susceptible to bottlenecks and service degradation.
This presentation covers the key concepts of quality of service. The
presentation includes an explanation of standard queuing methods as
defined in the Differentiated Services RFC as well as applications of
these methods through generic case studies.
Doug Hass is the COO of ImageStream, a leading router and WAN product
manufacturer. Prior to joining ImageStream, Mr. Hass was a partner in
Midwest-based Internet provider Skye/net. An Army veteran, certified
personal trainer, avid horseman and outdoorsman, Mr. Hass rode
professional rodeo for five years, and is the founder of Roughstock.com,
an award-winning country music Web site."
