Hello Hisham,

I firmly believe that the urgency of the situation hasn't permeated
fully to the upper layers of management.

I'm not sure if they realize that they will have to spend money in the
next few years, whether they like it or not, be it CGNs or IPv6.

The only question that remains is which investment/expenditure offers a
better ROI, or, in Geoff Huston's words, 'which investment actually has
a future'.
