We're currently using <http://www.dyband.com> and have been
pretty happy with it, however they've announced that they intend
to drop the linux based version of the product line (So we're
looking at alternatives)

If you're happy to run a mission critical, in-band, bandwidth
management box on Windows you should add them to your list ;-)

Broadly speaking we're looking at the products you mention, with
the addition of "NetEqualizer" <http://www.netequalizer.com/>

If anyone else is currently using NetEqualizer in a production
environment, please get in touch!  I'd love to hear how you're
getting on with it!
