Silver Peak has another variation for their SD-WAN solution.

Tom Hollingsworth writes about Cisco’s signal clock issue turning into a much bigger deal for Intel’s Atom SoC: It started somewhat innocently. Cisco released a field notice that there was an issue with some signal clocks on a range of their networking devices. This by itself was a huge issue. There had been rumblings about this issue for a few months. Some proactive replacement of affected devices to test things. Followed by panicked customer visits when the news broke on February 2nd. Cisco looked like they were about to get a black eye. The big question that arose was whether or not this issue was specific to Cisco devices or if it was an issue that was much bigger.

Ethan Banks wrote up a comprehensive overview to answer any questions.
