I would also wonder if someone has more details about how useful and
good the Avaya/Routescience are in practice after significant time in
deployment in the real world on a large network,   were  they worth
whatever the price tag was  to get and maintain ?

Oh, and how about Border6 ?    I  believe they have marketing language
claiming to be able to achieve some similar things,  in regards to
automatic path optimizations and rerouting.  :)

Yeah,  there are always great news stories.    But media tends to
exagerate things, and I think when it comes to enterprise products
it's strictly promotional.  When was the last time you heard a
followup news story on one of those sorts of things 1yr later about
BigCo dropped "Vendor X" product because they felt it's no longer
worth it,  the savings were less than expected and did not exceed the
cost of the product,  the actual thing fell short of marketing claims,
or didn't actually work out so well, etc, etc.
