For a linear and bounded operator T from a Banach space X into a Banach space Y, let ϱ(T[mid ][Iscr ]n, [Rscr ]n) and
ϱ(T[mid ][Iscr ]n, [Gscr ]n) denote the Rademacher and Gaussian cotype 2 norm of T computed with n vectors,
respectively. It is shown that the sequence ϱ(T[mid ][Iscr ]n, [Rscr ]n) has submaximal behaviour if and only if
ϱ(T[mid ][Iscr ]n, [Gscr ]n) has. This means that
Moreover, the class of these operators coincides with the class of operators preserving copies of ln∞ uniformly. The tool connecting these concepts is the equal norm Rademacher cotype of operators.
