Computer World says:
IP Devours All
The Internet Protocol is like Pac-Man, and it will eat everything within the next 10 years. -- Hossein Eslambolchi, CTO, AT&T
Frame relay will become obsolete and be replaced by IP within 10 years. Already, 50% of companies are now planning to move to IP. As with most trends, large companies will make the transition first, followed by midmarket and small businesses.
Cobblers. Most small businesses are runnign IP, not frame relay.
The transition will occur because all of the applications in the computing world use IP.
Today we have to convert that protocol into frames, and we don't have the flexibility to give frames different priorities. IP offers the flexibility of establishing different priorities based on the application or the user. -- Andrew Borgstrom, CEO, T-Systems North America, Lisle, Ill.
No! - Priority is a mistake. It isn't really part of IP.
