Re: At the opposite end of the scale

Yes, the standards detail a vast number of brilliant diagnostic features which would make any network management company's life easier; unfortunately, I have never seen these features integrated into any consumer or business class kit for one reason alone - cost. The backend systems exist, the technology exists, the will to build doesn't.
