Can anyone tell me if UNH, which is going to perform the interop test
on different vendors, will also perform some kind of benchmark type of
performance testing on the equipments also?

As a suggestion, if we can come up with certain benchmarks or series of
benchmarks, then UNH can perform the testing and let everyone know what
the AVERAGE performance of the equipments.  If the vendor wishes to make
the benchmark result for that piece of equipment public, then we can 
start gathering more and more benchmarks...  Just a thought.

Is UNH listening?
