We've been using Lattisnet for quite some time now (2 years?). In fact, we
were one of their initial beta testers. We aren't using the thinwire stuff
yet, but we are using their system over our IBM cabling system and over fiber.
 We have a few hundred connections to multiple lattisnets and have never had a
single hardware failure. Our campus backbone is also a lattisnet box.

I can't say enough good things about the product. We are very happy with it
and we are using it in almost all future ethernet connections, as well as
converting many old connections to it. It's ease of use and maintenance are
great since it gives us a star shaped ethernet in centralized wire closets.
As far as cost goes, it is a bit more expensive. However, we feel the
additional cost is small compared to what we get in maintainability. In the
long run it may even be cheaper when we factor in technician time for
installation and maintenance.
