That doesn't really matter, does it?!  Anyway, it was Torrent
Networking in Maryland; long since digested by Ericsson.  We
built "high speed" routers (high speed for the late 90s) and
provided bgp, ispf, isis, etc. for a variety of network
interfaces + a Cisco compatible CLI.  vhost (& also vnet for
virtual nets between vhosts) was done mainly for testing.
