This article is total bunk, factually incorrect in every possible way. 
Take this paragraph for example:

Juniper's new processors, what it will call the "Trio" family, will be 
built into line cards--networking components that can be stacked in a 
router to add capacity--that offer 16 10-gigabyte Ethernet ports. That's 
twice as much bandwidth as Cisco ( CSCO - news - people ) currently 
offers, though Cisco plans to launch its own 16-port devices in 2010.

If this doesn't send you screaming, nothing will. Whoever leaks this 
info to these folks should do a better job of it at least. Also that new 
logo is uglier than sin. :)
