It is amazing how much money is usually allocated to the Network or IT budget, but how small of a slice the network infrastructure is of that pie. Of course, that same network infrastructure is what causes most network issues. The least expensive part of the network is often the biggest culprit of problems. It seems like this is the one area you would want to make sure not to cut corners, right? Sadly, it is often the first thing to get "value engineered" out of the budget.
