Competitors Alcatel-Lucent, Ericsson, Huawei and Juniper all still put significant investments into ASICs. Others however like Arista and Extreme use off the shelf chips from Broadcom and others.

They might be forced to do whether they like it or not...if every box maker standardize on commonly available ICs nothing would prevent a new competitor from copy and paste operation in China...your own ASIC might be the only real solution to that threat, suing might be more challenging...Kris

It's great to hear that Cisco still sees a competitive advantage in designing its own ASICs.

If this sentiment is strongly embedded in Cisco culture then the company is bound to be the next DEC. And I don't mean that as a compliment
