Rick, there is probably not much inside the ASICs...the whole concept of software defined networks is that switch can be very simple like a cross-bar, has tons of very high speed IOs and all packet processing functions are done in very faast processor outside the switch core...we are moving back to cheap but dumb switches...Kris

Anyone have any insights into what's inside the new ASICs, 40G optical modules, couplers or other silicon in the switches?
