I can see it being hard to sell for existing deployments (don't fix what
isn't broken) unless they're a particularly forward thinking company... but
with new rollouts or major designs, maybe it should be something that is
pushed as a "this is coming, if you don't design it in, you're going to
have a massive Y2K-scale expense later"?
I'm trying to figure out how we sell implementation to the internal guys in
our network team, let alone to the division heads. ~600 sites, innumerable
vlans, oh my.
