Enterprise Technology Adoption Rates Among Network Managers

Cover
Today, network managers rely on a set of widely accepted guidelines, including performance and functionality to help evaluate infrastructure product purchases. Born in the product blue prints of equipment designers and manufacturers, these guidelines migrate to the laboratories of reputable product testing facilities, where they form the basis of product reviews. From there, they resurface in the product assessment strategies of network managers. Ultimately, these guidelines impact an Original Equipment Manufacture's (OEM) product adoption rate.

This document examines the connection between the product evaluation guidelines employed by network managers and the decisions OEMs face in building a family of switches for the Enterprise market. In the product development cycle, OEMs make important hardware and software decisions. This paper provides a detailed view of a specific networking software product and its impact on helping OEMs build Enterprise market products that exude the attributes valued by network managers.
