Comments on Vendor Optics – Listen Here

I recently listened to Packet Pushers show 395 recently. It is a great discussion on optical networking. One thing I wanted to make everyone aware of was a series of comments on the varying quality of optics and some justification around the premium prices often found on vendor branded optics. While the entire episode is worth a listen, the discussion around vendor optics begins at about 35:20 into the recording.

I work for a vendor and it is doubtful that people would view my opinion as unbiased. I encourage everyone to take a listen below and form their own opinions.

If you are a tech guy or girl, the Packet Pushers Podcast is a perfect addition to the podcatcher.
