It's on an eval right now, but list is around $14,500 (I couldn't tell
you what the street price is off the top of my head) for the
Packetshaper 4000, which I guess was the "top of the line" model at the
time. It has support our 3Mb link with no performance degradation.

I looked at the Aponet product briefly, but I could not compare the two
as they have both come so far over the past six months that I would
probably be comparing apples to oranges.

I don't know if Packeteer sells direct, so if anyone is interested in
contacting the reseller that I work with, please e-mail me privately.
