I work at a multivendor shop - we're not afraid to work with other
vendors' gear. There's a lot of Cisco here, but there is a lot of
non-Cisco here too.
Core routing/switching: Cisco
Access switches: Cisco
Border routers: Juniper
Load balancers: F5
IP Telephony: Avaya
SAN: Cisco/Brocade (I think - I don't touch the storage stuff too much :))
VPNs: Juniper/Fortinet/Cisco (depending on VPN type/application)
UPSs: Emerson(Liebert) and Eaton(Powerware)
