RVBD stands to gain in one of two ways: benefitting from WAN demand in 2014; or by direct acquisition from its goliath competitor, CISCO, which has much more free cash on hand than RVBD is worth. Draconian punishment of RVBD stock price (February 2013) over their own recent acquisition of OPNET to gain WAN advantage (which was necessary to compete with CISCO, but went less than optimally) makes RVBD a good discount buy.
