SDN (software defined network), yeah I'm playing with that in a non-DOCSIS system. Though your
virtualization does sound a bit different than mine (virtualized when ordered).

Hmm, so they're advertising a system they can't deliver? Great :-/

The card arrived so I'll see what I can get to do a test. Not sure what my
friends have that can really test bandwidth.
