here's me hiding this article from 'management' who are again chasing the
'converged' network :( In some cases it appears convergence makes some
sense, I think often though (in my very humble experience) it's more of a
buzzword-compliance test than anything else. In the case which kicked off
this discussion I was struck that perhaps an older and simpler solution
(ipsec vpn and some strict firewalling) would provide the seperation
necessary over a single network connection.

Oh the fun of converged networks, mpls private vpn's :)
