    My vote doesn't count, but I'd got for 1Tbps. A stepping stone at 400 Gbps is nice, but then it's just going to double the equipment costs getting to 1Tbps. Might as well start closer to the finish line. Then look to the next big thing.

    I agree, I'd rather just pay for the better one than pay once for 400Gbps and then again for 1 Tbps.
  4. It is not cost but time that makes upgrade selection tricky.
    Would you be willing to wait longer for 1TB if you get a 400 stepping stone?

    If both were available, would you take a 400 upgrade that you could do in a month or would a 6 month deploy of 1 TB be better?

    Hmm, that's a good point. I'd probably rather wait if it would quicken the development of 1 Tbps, but if they released both and 400Gbps didn't affect the release time of 1 Tbps then I would buy both.
