Check out this advisory from Cisco that came out a couple days ago. I’ll summarize for you : Thanks to a faulty clock signal component, certain Cisco devices will stop functioning after about 18 months and become really expensive bricks! If you read through it, you see phrases like “we expect product failures” and “is not recoverable.”
Think about the fastest switch in your network and why it’s so fast.
Yes, really. QoS has actually gotten some attention this year. After how many years of living in the dark and being feared by junior and senior engineers alike, we’re seeing some really cool technologies coming out for it.

I love going to Cisco Live every year. Without question, it’s my favorite event of the year. It’s a great event with great people and great things to do. With that said, let’s look at what could have been a bit better this year.
This year’s event had the usual stuff that everyone talks about – breakout session, keynotes, exams, Meet the Expert sessions. Cisco stepped outside of technology this year, though, with the theme of helping others.
