[cisco-bba] RedBack comments

I'm a bit partial considering I work for Cisco but the 7206 with NPE-G1
should at the very minimum be at par with the capabilities of a SMS 1800
(is that what you are looking at?) if not surpass it.  The 7206 can do
the following which the low-end Redbacks can't:

Per-user firewall
16k active sessions
Service Selection
ATM based Dynamic Bandwidth Selection

I'm sure I missed some more stuff.  You mentioned that the RB looks more
interesting, what specifically are you referring to?  I have to admit,
sometimes Cisco marketing/product capability definitions aren't as good
as they should be so I can easily see how one might miss a lot of the
features Cisco has.

Hope that helps a bit.
