California city connects with open-source networking

,----[ Quote ]
| Reliance on open source has been inexpensive and stable, says IT 
| manager for Madera, Calif.
| [...]
| In Madera's case, two Vyatta Inc. routers that run on the Debian 
| GNU/Linux-based open-source operating system helped Wheeler consolidate 
| routers in the city's data center last year. By eliminating eight Cisco 
| routers that needed upgrading in order to accommodate additional traffic, he 
| said he saved the city $16,000, spending about one-third of what he would 
| have spent on the Cisco router upgrade.     
| In a more dramatic money-saving move, the city did a complete network upgrade 
| to implement a voice-over-IP system based on Asterisk, an open-source PBX 
| system from Digium Inc. in Huntsville, Ala. The Asterisk VoIP system cost 
| about $120,000, whereas a Cisco system would have run about $400,000, he 
| said.

Vyatta Delivers Twice the Performance of Cisco at Half the Price

,----[ Quote ]
| Vyatta today announced the release of independent third-party testing
| results from The Tolly Group that measured the throughput and
| performance of the open-source, x86-based Vyatta router and
| firewall appliance versus the proprietary Cisco 2821 ISR.
| "This report shatters the myth that proprietary hardware products
| are a better choice than standard x86-based systems for network
| infrastructure," said Dave Roberts, VP of strategy and marketing
| at Vyatta. "For the majority of routing applications, open-source
| software and x86-based hardware can easily address the performance
| requirements and at significantly lower price points."
