That's not our experience; it seems that BUs protecting margins talk
louder than the sales guys, so when it reaches discounts like that,
even because of lack of adequate product from Cisco (lower gear can't
handle it, big gear is too expensive), the competition winning is
worse to Cisco but better to the BU numbers, so they leave it to that.
