Ok, yes they added some memory and it is faster, but they needed to put a
MUCH bigger CPU in that box. It was a jump, but not as big as the one we
all needed. The 7500 was not any new technology, just adding more of the
current. And no we are not tunneling through another backbone, we run our
backbone over Cascade 9000 with clear channel DS3s.
