How about we agree to put all these news releases under one topic. Junking up the board with all this crap from the internet is not helpful. It also reads like the folks posting all this desperately wanting to believe in some small ray of hope, rather than actually being confident about the future.

Agree on the "clutter" it's said that confidence starts at the top! does our CEO exude plenty of confidence to you sharp??
Personally i keep digging for reasons to not sell my few shares in this outfit.

I noticed it took a follow-up call for CRg to finally share and show some excitement about the companies IoT prospects. Such information should have been brought to our attention sooner than later.

Look forward to your response SHARP!

So as to avoid "clutter", I thought I would post this here:

http://feedly.com/k/1hSIOXV

It's an article from phys.org characterizing the IoT as:

"This will be potentially the biggest business opportunity in the history of people,"

"Research firm IDC predicts this shift will generate nearly $9 trillion in annual sales by 2020. By comparison, the total annual sales of the San Francisco Bay Area's 150 biggest technology companies in 2012 was $677 billion."

"Google buys Nest Labs for $3.2B to get foothold in Internet of Things"

http://www.fiercewireless.com/story/google-buys-nest-labs-32b-get-foothold-internet-things/2014-01-14

Could VTSS be on the ground floor for once?!

But is everyone ready for an internet of things?

http://www.appstechnews.com/news/2014/jan/14/gartner-warns-companies-arent-adopting-third-era-enterprise-it/

Now it's $19T:

In the words of our fearless leader regarding IoT,

". And I don't think 20% necessarily is the limit. It's just y ou
can't – these guy s aren't real fast movers either in a lot of applications and it's just a little difficult to predict how
quick it will turn on."

Well, again, we're not guiding on the quarter-by-quarter basis. We do – we've been say ing it for a couple of
quarters. We have a pretty nice funnel in the automotive segment, a few other places. So, there's something –
definitely some things we think we can get close in the y ear on the IP side.

"However, most of these ty pes of switching also use the 1588
timing specifications."

So, as
that market moves into gigabit, it comes into play for us, and it comes into play in almost an id eal way in that we
provide best-in-class deterministic capability in the switching technology, best-in-class timing capability and very
important for lot of these applications is low power because they go into boxes that don't want to have fans in
them. They go into embedded applications where they 're very small size, very little power. So, we're finding an
ideal, literally an ideal match for our portfolio in some of these apps.

So, that's industrial and military switching and networking, but then y ou get to all kinds of smart grid metering,
y ou get into all sorts of piece of equipment now that are just having an Ethernet PHY or a very small Ethernet
switch. We won a design recently in a security gate for parking lots. I mean, who would imagine there'd be a n
Ethernet switch in there, but now there is.

And so, we're literally collecting hundreds or more customers in this space, guys we don't know y et that have been
coming to us over the last y ear. We've identified this as an area where we now have the wherewithal to go focus on.
And that was really the second reason we haven't play ed here as we didn't focus on being successful where we are.
We now feel we have a strong enough market position in the Carrier and Enterprise that we can take a few
resources incrementally and go focus on this market and see how fast we can grow it.

Right. I mean, a good example of, I just saw a name two day s ago, I can't even repeat it for y ou, it begins with an
'H', and it's a Chinese meter company, one of the largest in China. They designed in our Caracal switch in one of
their meters. We've never heard of them, we don't know who they are, but they 're going to sell a hell a lot of
meters. And so...

A situation has fallen on our laps!! debt is in order, possible customers need not worry about company closing doors tomorrow.
In the last couple of years vitesse has released 6 IP products for the IoT world which seem to have taken serious foot-hold.
30% of company business by 2016 would boost us to another level. I believe recent buyers see that possibility.

Garif, to answer you question you posed to me above, the problem is that our CEO exudes too much confidence, though why I'm not sure. His demeanor to me never sounds like there is a sense of urgency. I guess if it were you or I and we knew the Board was OK with a turnaround program in the 7-10 year range while we piled up options at the shareholders expense, we would exude confidence also. The bottom line is, he doesn't give me any confidence.

Sharp...I have a slightly different take on things.

I understand that this particular market is driven by waves of innovation, and even if you have the perfect solution, it cannot become a product unless and until the equipment makers start buying it. So, it has taken VTSS a while to finally (it seems) catch a wave of innovation and have the potential to grow.

I think I would lump CRGs (seeming) lack of urgency in with his communication skills in general. Does everyone remember when he decided to add to VTSS' financial leverage during a recent earnings call? Or most recently, when he came in a little low for the quarter and predicted a miss for the next with no explanation? It literally makes me crazy sometimes (the business school dumb-bots should hold him accountable at the earnings calls, but don't).

Having said that though...

I think that it seems that VTSS is poised to grow. Even if they have found themselves at the right place at the right time purely by accident. CRG has unequivocally called for VTSS to be profitable by the June quarter. We'll see, but THIS he was clear about. We've seen some interesting players buy-in, add board members, and even add to existing positions. Hell, we've even seen some within the company make open market purchases.

Let's see what happens. He has until the June quarter.

I'll forego my usual diatribe against CRG and concentrate on the technicals. If you subscribe to the Elliott Wave Theory, it appears we are commencing Wave 5 of a 5 wave move on a short-term basis, that hopefully will carry us up into the $ 3.60 area (At least) and then we may get a multiwave pullback assuming no blockbuster news.

Innovative products seems to be one of VTSS's strengths and getting gobs of design wins is also a strong point, but what amazes me is despite poor management, who is in charge of sales and marketing?

How many years can we go where we don't have any significant bump in sales despite good Engineering and product line in an in demand sector. Maybe it's time to try new blood in the sales area.

The good news is stock is NOT selling off today after the 2 conferences. It seems to me, Billy Martin and the gang need to get stock price over $ 5, so a lot of the funds that are prohibited from owning stocks under $ 5, can buy.

This is a feed-forward loop: when VTSS sustains $4.50, we resolve the debt and bring down our risk profile. Likewise, when we get to $5, and all the funds that do not buy sub $5 shares are now allowed to buy. This could appreciate very quickly. The competitive P/S is around 3, which would put VTSS around that $4.50 mark.

That's a very interesting article GARIF.

The article begins:

"Needham & Co. analyst Alex Henderson, who covers shares of Ciena (CIEN) and JDS-Uniphase (JDSU) in the fiber optic market, and Juniper Networks (JNPR) and Cisco Systems (CSCO) in the networking field, today offers up a 12-page think piece titled “teaching elephants to dance” about the implications of cloud computing for the phone companies."

Needham still has a "buy" on VTSS, and all of the above-named companies are VTSS' customers (not sure about JDS - they are really an optical component company, so maybe this would be the wrong market to be a VTSS customer). Ciena is listed in the annual report as a customer, but not in the most recent presentation. Needham has a "buy" on JDS and Ciena, but "hold" on Cisco and Juniper. It's interesting too that VTSS has targeted the metro-edge. This would be a region of high growth and strategically located to make a market and establish a secure base from which to conquer the remainder of the network.

Also, VTSS has introduced a software package for carrier ethernet that seems to be an operating system for the carrier ethernet network:

http://investor.vitesse.com/releasedetail.cfm?ReleaseID=819440

Whether it will be thee operating system for the network remains to be seen.

phobos,

JDS-Uniphase has been included in ALL of the presentations up until the December 11, 2014 Benchmark's Micro-Cap Discovery Conference.

JDS-Uniphase is listed under " Connectivity " with many others including the infamous Apple icon.

The latest TWO presentations do not include JDS-Uniphase or the Apple icon but do include many of the large companies like, Ciena, Cisco, Alcatel-Lucent,Huawei, ZTE and others.

I am not sure how to take this. I would believe that just because the company is not listed does not mean they are not a customer. probably a matter of # of signed contracts. maybe????

either way,in one way or another, it looks as though Vitesse has something to do with ALL of them.

Also,
one of our newest BOD members, Ken Traub has a connection with JDS-U, once serving as a VP following the acquistion of ABNH, in which he managed the sale to.

"To date, over 40 OEMs have licensed Vitesse's CEServices™ software, with several starting field trials with proven MEF CE 2.0 compliance in less than six months, versus 18 month cycles or more for typical solutions."

I believe YES it is becoming the operating system! my deeper excitement are the possibilities for Intelli with this ultra importance of "Data Centers/Cloud... Intelli the new Pony express???

And last question on the carrier-class PHYs: Am I right in kind of figuring out
that that could be an appealing product to the hyper-scale data center guys beyond
carrier? And if so, are those guys kind of just getting to be aware of the product or
are they fully aware of it and ramping it up or is that opportunity (?) that could
reflect (?) in the future?

Chris: Yeah, that's a good question. We have traditionally not chased the big enterprise
and particularly data center applications because we have a couple big gorilla
competitors there. Our Intellisec technology in particular is unique, it is patented,
and it is something MACsec traditionally has been deployed in the data center.
Whether there are good opportunities for doing data center extension, allowing
companies to go across multiple networks with MACsec, which is what Intellisec
enables, we're still exploring. To answer your question, I think there are some
opportunities for us. But they're not something we're going to hang our hat on too
hard right now.

We've touched the magic $4.50, we need now stay above it long enough to start converting; all this could happen long before the Q3 announcement to come. Could Q2 blowing the lid off earnings make the Q3 expectation a non event?? I strongly believe it will! opinions??

I go on record Q2 will bring us to $6 securing our conversion.

Posted by GARIF - 9 years ago

I would argue that the potential conversion is one of the things pulling the price higher. Conversion would be dilutive, but it would also give VTSS a much better risk profile and a pristine balance sheet. The lowered risk profile adds to VTSS' shares intrinsic value. The higher we go, the more likely conversion, the more valuable the shares. Under the new debt agreement, I think the conversion price is 130% of the previous $4.50 price, or $5.85.

I don't think a $6 share price is too crazy. For this quarter, that might be a stretch. If we take currently (((sales)x(p/s))/shares_out), I get about $4.48 -- about the current price level, but if we use the consensus of the June quarter $29M x 4 =$117 and if the p/s goes to 3 based upon a growth premium, then ($117 x 3.0)/58.25 = $6.05. I did not include dilution in the price calculation, but let's assume lowered risk offsets the dilution.

It all seems very do-able. I don't know if it will happen in May, although it's not at all far-fetched for June (reported in early September).

VTSS is in the "sweet-spot":

http://www.convergedigest.com/2014/03/blueprint-nfv-sdn-and-carrier-ethernet.html

Between carrier ethernet, SDN (CEServices), and NFV (ViSAA) could VTSS be in the network sweet spot? Will no matter the question (IoT?), will "VTSS" always be the answer?

Data centers, data centers... Someones ability to bridge these data centers safely just might stand to make a lot of money.

Q: And last question on the carrier-class PHYs: Am I right in kind of figuring out
that that could be an appealing product to the hyper-scale data center guys beyond
carrier? And if so, are those guys kind of just getting to be aware of the product or
are they fully aware of it and ramping it up or is that opportunity (?) that could
reflect (?) in the future?

Chris: Yeah, that's a good question. We have traditionally not chased the big enterprise
and particularly data center applications because we have a couple big gorilla
competitors there. Our Intellisec technology in particular is unique, it is patented,
and it is something MACsec traditionally has been deployed in the data center.
Whether there are good opportunities for doing data center extension, allowing
companies to go across multiple networks with MACsec, which is what Intellisec
enables, we're still exploring. To answer your question, I think there are some
opportunities for us. But they're not something we're going to hang our hat on too
hard right now.

Phobos,
Contrary to the belief of many, Crg has truly positioned this company in the right direction-markets. IoT it's a whole different animal, a new "Gold Rush".

"From a technology perspective, ACG forecast that the edge router segment will reach $12.2 billion in 2018, while the core router market will increase to $3.3 billion."

Key Vitesse customers fighting out below,

"Alternatively, the service provider edge market has been more competitive with Cisco, Alcatel-Lucent (NYSE: ALU), Juniper, and Huawei accounting for more than 90 percent of the Q1 through Q3 2012 share.

"One application that will likely drive more router sales will be wireless backhaul."

"Backhaul" crg and crew saw it coming and readied the ship for it.

http://www.fiercetelecom.com/story/mef-certifies-20-vendors-under-ce-20-specification/2013-01-29

Lets not forget! vitesse reigned supreme in helping the first wave of vendors qualify. "this thing comes in waves" says Crg,; I surmise Vitesse has been extremely busy helping the next wave to be.
Not sure but I may have read where crg referred to the MEF as 25 million in business down the line; companies success among the early qualifiers should add to those numbers.

This sounds a lot like VTSS, whose legacy products have been declining steadily, but whose new products have been growing rapidly. As the newer rapidly growing products become a greater share of the overall pie, growth takes off.

it now seems that the number of products that Vitesse produces are on the cusp of fruition. I would most definitely expect an event filled Q2 conference call. With the widespread increase in news of signed contracts and growth in revenue this quarter coming from the customers of Vitesse, how can this not finally be trickling down to money in their own pockets. This should soon prove to be true that we have been building momentum into Q2 with a breakeven windfall to later occur in Q3. This is what we have been told, close to what we have been told for the last eight years but this time the difference is we have finally been seeing proof that the customers are all providing positive results where Vitesse is concerned.
Q2 should be a very interesting call, finally

Frankly, Friends, I don't get it. For two months now we have been in a steady decline on share price. If everything is so rosy then what's the deal? Look at the charts - 50 day moving average, Point and Figure Chart, failure at the Resistance line. I'm a chart guy and the chart isn't agreeing with all this "love" that everyone is showing prior to earnings. I'm not sold - why are you? And then why nothing but declining share price. No one is getting on the train; instead they seem to be slowly getting off.

couldn't Needham have something to do with the sell-off?
I would think that they are after a couple of flips during the ride up. With the mighty number of shares they own and the low volume occurring, they must continue have some wrangling power behind them.

with volume in trading being very low, I wouldn't doubt that many are still waiting for the Q3 "promise" to be delivered and at this point of the game I do not blame them one bit. We still have not seen any significant rise in revenue.

Satbob, the "rosy" you are hearing about are results from the customers of Vitesse. This is a step by step process and like we have all been told before, it takes many years from design win to product revenue occurring. or the downside in what we have already experienced for a good many years, from design wins to talk about the next cycle of design wins with little revenue to show in between.

Q3 is most definitely Gardners last chance to finally get it right and I believe he will. All of the "rosy" out there is the proof.

One other note is that every time recently that we have had a slew of investor conferences to attend, more investors have come on board with higher volume and this looks to be playing out all over again. Most likely with more new products

My thought was too that the iffy macro economy is not generally conducive to capital spending. VTSS sells chips to the people who make capital equipment for the service providers. The market is probably nervous about the potential for a downturn in VTSS' crowded market. Also, as chist3opher comments above, there is a substantial time delay between design win and peak revenue AND this is a company who is trying to gain back its credibility after the debacle. As far as the market is concerned, the jury is still out. The market will need to be shown. Although, there are many waiting for the results to come in. This is all happening on low volume.

Christ,
Thanks for reiterating, " it takes many years from design win to product revenue occurring." so many of us board members really have trouble understanding this.
I used to give the farmers example of preparing soil(design win)__ than comes the planting, nurturing,,,(the delay)__ finally after a year or so comes harvest time(revenue).

Imagine planting say, 10,000 coconuts which will take 4 to 5 years to drop a fruit!! starvation could creep into the picture as we wait, oh! lets not mention the occasional hurricane which could wipe-out half the crop.

GARIF, I believe that you have mentioned this Yahoo poster in the past and I will leave his name out at that. He sent me an e-mail about four months ago reflecting his present thoughts on Vitesse. This individual sells another type of product within the industry that Vitesse is in. Here are a few quotes: " 2 years ago about half of my customers moved forward with Vitesse over the competition. Today I can't name a single network/Telco/media box vendor that does not use Vitesse." " This is just the beginning of a long cycle. Design wins take 2-3 years before they produce. R&D takes 1-3 years. Those are behind us now." " Small cells and the edge are booming right now. Vitesse is winning way more than any competitor I see and engineers I talk to on a daily basis tell me their performance is unequalled."

I was thinking about the earnings call... and I was attempting to decide if this was a temporary setback or debacle 2.0. Well, what did the market do? It adjusted the value of the shares downward in accord with break-even and profitability being pushed forward, but the share price didn't plunge to the sub $2 range, bracing for the full "Tomasetta-ing". We bounced off the resistance at $3.25, just like Tech predicted. I'm disappointed, but I don't think there is any Debacle 2.0 in our immediate future. I would attribute the cause to VTSS missing a design cycle during the debacle, and as a result, even though new product revenues are growing quickly, legacy revenues are declining quickly off a broader base in a down economy. I am encouraged by the acceleration of design wins, the emerging markets VTSS didn't know it had (IoT and storage), and the fact that CRG now realizes that it's not just about break-even, but about growing VTSS to a size appropriate to the size and number of markets it now serves. And this last idea didn't come from CRG: he doesn't think like that. The idea came from Mr. Martin and his two very capable additions to the board (perhaps Nuss too). I'm frustrated. But I think this may all turn out OK.

thanks Phobos, I agree with you.

Vitesse has in no way missed a present design cycle or is even close being in a "debacle 2.0." I understand all about the missed design cycle of the past. I lived through it along with the many others here.

Vitesse is a part of a brand new form of communications. This is why now they have to "market" their product to the many companies out there looking for that right product for the new situation they are in. This takes TIME and why we have been having so many trade show events, The Internet of things Developers Conference is one example and why Nuss has been out promoting Vitesse Products with the many different web casts. This is a global cause. Vitesse has already been labeled a "start-up" company. When it comes down to it, it is. This is where the disconnect occurs between us old timer share holders AND the new shareholder, who IS looking at Vitesse as a start-up. daWiley has been saying over and over- "if you have not averaged down, you are better off selling and moving on."

In a way it is almost useless to be bringing up any comparing with revenues of the past. The revenues of the past have no meaning at all with the "new" Vitesse, whether we believe they do or not. Gardner is wishing right now that the cycle of "Legacy products" would be over and done with because they are dragging Vitesse down. but he can't because we NEED those "legacy products" to help keep the company alive until the New Vitesse product line is thriving. It will be happening.

"right on GARIF, keep bringing worthwhile additions to the board." with a touch of sarcasm!

the joke is on all of us friends! we been theorizing/hypothesizing about the conundrum that is Vitesse for years! sadly nearly every theory(some very eloquent) have not panned out. The one constant has been Crg's lack of ability to deliver on SELF IMPOSED promises.

" This takes TIME and why we have been having so many trade show events."
Year after year we're in many trade shows but results seem to lead to the same story, 'wait till next year"...
The friend from Thousand Oaks(personally I think he was Vitesse man) spoke of customers building with Vitesse and also gave the 2-3 year before D-wins start producing; what i find most troubling is WHY DOES CRG KEEP GIVING NUMBERS HE CANNOT MEET? why not lowball the situation and forever beat the numbers???

Once again, we find ourselves in a very frustrating situation. Wasn't it only 2012 when VTSS came out with all the new products? So, tacking on 2~3 years would get us to 2014~2015. Make no mistake, I'm not happy about this set-back, but I do think that it is more the legacy products deteriorating more rapidly than expected and not the new products failing to grow (VTSS had 29% growth in new products this quarter - which is the equivalent of a 170%+ yearly growth rate). Believe me, I understand the frustration, but it is the nature of the beast.

I am not looking at the situation the same as you are GARIF, not at all. The trade shows I speak of are the recent ones GARIF.

If I had believed this was a joke, believe me I would not be here.

GARIF, I believe that YOU were the one to let things "RUN WILD" over the last few quarters with over exaggerated expectations.

I think we all, at one time or another, fall in love with a stock and let "irrational exuberance" set in.

If Gardner could just master one skill it should be the old UPOD (Under Promise and Over Deliver". Most successful companies set the bar low on estimates, so they can be a hero when they meet or exceed, and then leave room to raise forward guidance.

CRG keeps making the rookie mistake of over-promising and under-delivering. Hopefully, this is a lesson learned and we have a nice surprise in the near future - I'm not betting on it though. If and when it happens, it WILL be a surprise.

I noticed that the concensus estimate is above management's quoted range:

We were originally supposed to be seeing something in the range of +$30M for the third quarter.

and remember during the Q2 call Gardner did state: " At the beginning of the year we set a target of reaching non-GAAP profitability in Q3-and we still expect to be at or near that target."

the consensus would be putting revenue "near that target"

I don't believe that Gardner gives two F's about expected revenue. more of a it is what it is.

I suppose looking at this from CRG's point of view, there is no urgency to cause a huge uptick in the top-line. The debt is taken care of, it seems Mr. Martin is not going anywhere, and as long as new product revenue continues to grow at such a stellar rate, as it displaces shrinking legacy revenue, the top line will begin to grow and attract investors. I just wish that the reach number for internal management use were different than the VTSS' number published to the investment community.

...just a thought, and a minor quibble in the grand scheme of things.

Great work Phobos,
oh! about the spying on the locals? was just collateral damage my friend.

Our "40" design wins at Cisco should enjoy a bright future according to Chambers....

" Chambers said. "It sounds simple, but it is very, very difficult to do, and is almost impossible to do without our architectures and technology."

In addition to Cisco's new Application Centric Infrastructure, an SDN architecture that leverages a mix of Cisco hardware and software, Chambers said Cisco's vision for fog computing, or a platform for driving compute capabilities to devices at the edge of a network, will help it emerge as the Internet of Everything leader.

Intellisec should have a field day in being adopted.

"Cisco isn't alone in its bullish stance on the Internet of Everything. Industry analyst firm Gartner said in March it expects the Internet of Things (IoT) -- a subset of the broader Internet of Everything that involves machine-to-machine, or device-to-device, connections -- to have a "potential transformational effect on the data center market, its customers, technology providers, technologies and sales and marketing models." The firm estimated that there will be 26 billion IoT-related units installed by 2020, with IoT product and service providers generating incremental revenues exceeding $300 billion."

LG Uplus is a divison of LG whereas you speak of another division, LG CNS.

all that I have been able to find regarding LG Uplus corp. (South Korea telecom and mobile phone provider ) and Samsung is:

" On July 17, 2013 LG Uplus launched LTE-A service and introduced Galaxy S4 LTE-A the world's first 100% LTE smart mobile phone that can utilize data, voice and text with LTE.

I will assume that Vitesse is a part of this.


the topic you speak about in your post is between LG CNS and Samsung. from what I have found the two are competing with each other.

Oh, OK. Thanks Chris. I'm not used to seeing the amount of vertical integration that is apparently common in Korea. I'm not sure if LG is a customer, but at least I know that Samsung is, and they are in the storage space. It is remarkable how easily VTSS re-entered the storage space. I don't even think that VTSS realized they were back in the storage space until recently.

Vintage moments below from Q3 2012
How much more valuable has the next stage in our product evolution(Intellisec) made us??

Q: Thanks. And a follow-on is you've talked a lot about design wins, exposure at top
OEMs. How would the content trends play out as the design win pipeline ramps?
Are you cross-selling timing with switch engines and PHYs? I mean what's sort of
the high water marks we can look at for ASVs(?) here?

Chris: The thing that's been the most effective for us in the new product portfolio is
really the 1588 technology and the ability to get those PHYs particularly designed
in. Part of that is because the network really is going through a transition and
requires this new technology and part of that is because the way we've
implemented our technology you can very simply take a system that does not have
1588, what they call PTP unaware, and you can change the PHYs, taking out one
or more of our competitors and putting our PHYs in. With just that change you
can make your box 1588 capable and a very highly accurate 1588. It's a very
simple upgrade. People can go do it. We have a lot of people doing it. It gets us in
the game. Those are fairly complex products. They come with software. That
software is common between our PHYs and our switches. In often case we find
that is a lead into different customers and then we can follow with some of the
more complex switch technology.

We also see that trend working in a different direction, which is into OTN and I
talked a little bit about that last time in that once a company is using our 1588 ten
GB PHY technology, if they need 1588 in OTN there's a very good shot that we
can go displace an OTN vendor in a router application because we've got 1588
common between our PHYs, our switches, and our OTN products. It is a pretty
good cross-sell and what we've done with the technology is we've gotten ourselves
to the point where we're not talking about how good an eye(?) diagram looks like
or whether it's five milliwatts or less power or more power or a dollar per port
lower price. We're now talking to the systems engineers and even the network
engineers who care about Verizon's network and how accurate and how
deployable that network is. It's a much different sell than it was 24 months ago.

Absolutely GARIF! Just look at the article you posted about MRVL:

"Networking's looking iffy
During the quarter, Marvell reported networking results down 3% year over year, despite double-digit sequential growth for its Xelerated network processing unit chips and increased demand for SoCs for network attached storage and Ethernet routers."

This is at a time when VTSS' new products are growing at an 80% yoy clip. Moreover, I think that when FSL marries their network processor to VTSS' switching technology, that BRCM and MRVL (the current #1 and #3 in the market space) are going to have a real problem because the network processors still seem to be a lock for these two and a space that VTSS has not (does not currently have the resources) to enter. Although, I think as CRG has previously pointed out, it is a very crowded space, and would be tough-going for new entrants at this point (good luck to AMCC).

An interesting scenario moving forward might be that FSL buys VTSS at some future point (sometime in 2016 ...?).

I can dream can't I?

AMCC owes us IP revs if they EVER ship their Server on a Chip in production qtys.

Sprint ads on bball games with the hampster --say tri-band -that is TDD 4G-LTE/Advanced installed in 100 cities by Nov. 2014. and it uses the ALU LightRadio boxes with VTSS 1588 timing inside.

the big ? is what is VZ doing??? they now have ads for XLTE -- twice as fast they say -- what's inside??

and what is ATT and APPL doing??? HTC, Samsung and LG all have tri band Sprint Spark capable phones on the Sprint website -- are these delays being caused by the two largest carriers being late to the party or having to re-design a failed test roll-out?? and from what i hear --the iPhone 6 is NOT tri-band capable??

how come Sprint uses a talking hampster inside a roller ball to tell the public about their new network?? do they think we are all that dumb?? why not just say we are replacing our crappy WiMax 4G with a tri-band LightRadio box --show the box an say -- no more cell towers --easy installs on buildings and lampposts and super reliable faster speeds - -an where is PETA?? the hampster will use up all the oxygen inside that roller ball - -

VTSS is better than cash and worth over $6 today in any deal - -$7X 60 MM shares = $420MM - back out the debt and you get over $6 per share ---thus my premise - -VTSS is better than CASH. trade on - -iam milk this sucker til it breaks $10 --which it will.

The world we live in now is M & A. To survive VTSS needs to merge or be bought out with a player that has sales and is profitable.

Unfortunately I don't think the current management and Board is up for this- it would end the gravy train they've been on for so long.

Hopefully they would receive an offer that would be enticing and let them make the big bucks.

The above article brings to mind the importance of technologies like Intellisec.

Well, Tech, Chris, and GARIF...we know that the ramp will happen given the acceleration of design wins AND the acceleration of new product revenue growth (80%+). The question for the investment community can vtss sustain this pattern of growth and create a profitable company. Unless and until this happens, vtss is just another company with a great story.

Good assessment & analogy phobos. Let's hope the market holds together here (overdue for a correction) until VTSS can show better top-line growth and hopefully profitability.

I guess a positive is the fact VTSS seems to go counter market a lot and marches to the beat of its own drummer. If we could just re-test recent highs that would be a NICE percentage gain.

GARIF,

I think the upshot about MACSec vs. Data Flow security is that it is better to have both especially since the encryption is based upon pseudo-random sequences that can be reverse engineered. The rest of the world is still leery of NSA/GCHQ security intrustions, particularly when buying equipment from US-based firms who might be more susceptible to national security state pressure.

Treat this data point as one among many, which by itself may mean nothing, but placed in a larger context may begin to form a coherent picture (see last news item below).

Also, someone else on this board implied that Edward Snowden was responsible for Silicon Valley's present plight. Not true. The national security state and no one else is responsible for the gross constitutional violations we now experience - Snowden was just the bringer of bad news. The newspapers reported the Reichstag fire, they did not start it.

...how far we have fallen from the days of the Daniel Ellsberg.

Phobos,
The "PACS" article brought to mind this quote from Crg from the Dec 2013 call,

"So, that's industrial and military switching and networking, but then y ou get to all kinds of smart grid metering,
y ou get into all sorts of piece of equipment now that are just having an Ethernet PHY or a very small Ethernet
switch. We won a design recently in a security gate for parking lots. I mean, who would imagine there'd be a n
Ethernet switch in there, but now there is."


MRV is definitely a customer of ours, we are in there!
Lets keep in mind Intellisecs unique ability to "Secure data center to data center interconnects"
I see us being part of all these new DATA CENTER PROJECTS!!!

The "SME" article should bring smiles in VTSS land.

It's hard to tell. This is a 40G "wedge". VTSS is mostly vying in the 10G arena. It's one thing to have an open-source configuration, it's another to have open-source chips. I did notice that they threw around the term ASIC a lot, which is generally not what VTSS offers. The article also said that they are in competition with CSCO and HP, who are customers of VTSS. I tend to think that this is the competition.

I believe this to be GOOGLE, FACEBOOK, or MICROSOFT.

"Elisa Estonia demonstrated the carrier aggregation technology on its LTE-Advanced network using blocks of spectrum in the 1800MHz and 2600Mhz bands. Right now, the company is testing Huawei networking kit, with NSN and Ericsson equipment also set to be put through its paces in the near future."

We now have the funds to wait for LTE-A to take off and when it does We are going to benefit royally.

The INTERNET OF THREATS article and the following, "On the inhibitor front, security continues to be a strong barrier with just under half (49 percent) of respondents concerned about how secure their data is in the cloud." brings to mind the comment from CRG, "THAT'S WHY WE CREATED INTELLISEC"

Thanks again Phobos,

"The award winning Huawei S12700 agile switch has been built on a fully programmable architecture that supports customized business requirements and quick deployment via software upgrades without the need to replace hardware. The S12700 agile switch addresses immediate challenges such as the convergence of fixed and wireless networks, implementing cloud computing and facilitating video transmission, and can also adapt to upcoming technologies and trends such as Software Defined Networks (SDN), big data and the Internet of things. Huawei's agile network solutions, which are designed with the S12700, helps enterprises transform their business operations and provide innovative service offerings at four times the speed. Since the launch of the agile switch in August 2013, the solution has been deployed in two hundred commercial enterprise networks around the world."

The ABOVE bodes well for our future

Something for nothing GARIF usually turns into nothing for something. That doesn't mean I like the government picking winners in the marketplace on the taxpayers dime. VTSS does not have the cash flow to give money to the PACs in Washington that run the country, or else they might be able to offload some of their R&D expenses onto a university benefiting from government largesse, like BRCM. I think this stinks, but unfortunately business belongs to the politically well-connected instead of those with vision. Do you get the impression that BRCM getting free R&D really galls me?

Unfortunately GARIF, I think that privacy has been dead for some time. Perhaps we need to extend that same lack of privacy to the shadowy un-elected bureaucrats, PACs, and lobbyists by shining the Klieg lights of public attention on their secretive doings: what's good for us is good for them too. I think the problem is that the life of the "private" citizen has become an open book, and yet the government and its many agencies operate more secretly than ever. Time for a change perhaps.

"Looked at from the narrow perspective of the product capabilities, it "seems fairly pedestrian," Nolle said. But there's a complete NFV implementation underneath, putting Overture ahead of bigger players including Alcatel-Lucent, Cisco Systems, Juniper, HP, IBM, and more. "Overture does more than they need to do," Nolle said. "I have not seen a commercial offering of NFV that matches this in capability from anybody."

The above observation is most powerful! I like our chances of being part of that story.

Phobos my friend!
I posed that very question some months back about magic "page 7", is Vitesse giving us hints?? I personally believe it is.
Microsoft, Google and now Facebook have in recent months announced projects where VeriT and specially INTELLISEC could reign.
I regress to the Big company CRg hinted about last year!! this was one of the BIG GORILLAS friends. Bless your heart CRG we did "hang our hat'' on them hard.


Data centers, data centers... Someones ability to bridge these data centers safely just might stand to make a lot of money.

Q: And last question on the carrier-class PHYs: Am I right in kind of figuring out
that that could be an appealing product to the hyper-scale data center guys beyond
carrier? And if so, are those guys kind of just getting to be aware of the product or
are they fully aware of it and ramping it up or is that opportunity (?) that could
reflect (?) in the future?

Chris: Yeah, that's a good question. We have traditionally not chased the big enterprise
and particularly data center applications because we have a couple big gorilla
competitors there. Our Intellisec technology in particular is unique, it is patented,
and it is something MACsec traditionally has been deployed in the data center.
Whether there are good opportunities for doing data center extension, allowing
companies to go across multiple networks with MACsec, which is what Intellisec
enables, we're still exploring. To answer your question, I think there are some
opportunities for us. But they're not something we're going to hang our hat on too
hard right now.

Verizon uses XLTE to bridge the gap between LTE and LTE-A

"He added that LTE-A with carrier aggregation is not here yet, with the first deployment having taken place last year in Korea with SK Telecom. "It likely will ramp up in 2015," Sharma said."

LTE-A seems to be a foreign language that roughly translates to "next year"

" Verizon uses XLTE to bridge gap between LTE and LTE-A "

interesting paragraph from that above story:

" LTE-A is the next iteration of the global LTE standard that increases the efficiency with which the spectrum is used. This self- improving efficiency might have a somewhat longer staying power to handle the continually increasing demand, he said, than other efforts like Verizon's branded XLTE."

Looks like LTE-A is the network that will be having a very long life whereas the outlook for XLTE is looking to be short lived.

if possible, will or "is" Verizon talking with Vitesse about some changes to their XLTE Network.

Verizon provides a service (telecomm), and to do so they buy from equipment makers (ALU, CSCO, Ericsson, etc.). The equipment makers buy from VTSS. Verizon is the customer of our customer (s).

I suspect that service providers are waiting for a more robust rebound in the economy before there is an investment in capital equipment. While the market has been rising, the market is not the economy, and a lot of the market rise has been based upon financial sleight-of-hand, like share buybacks, as opposed to top line growth.

So, until then, we will all be sitting around, "waiting for Godot".

New technologies you probably didn’t know you had (another data point for 4G LTE-A)

"4G LTE Advanced. Also called LTE Wideband or LTE-A, is a new wireless Internet protocol capable of reaching speeds up to 20 times faster than current 4G LTE cell connections and six times faster than standard wired connections. Not only would this bump-up in speed be used by phones, it could replace wired home Internet service. It has already been introduced in several places around the world, but don’t expect it to become a global standard in less than five years, as it will face government regulatory challenges initiated by the huge domestic cable and wireless providers, who stand to lose everything unless they adopt the new technology and make it widely available."

Inside the Secret Building That's Bringing Cell Service To NYC's Subway (ALU & ERIC are both customers)

"Fascinatingly, the four major US cellular carriers must all participate and supply their own hardware to bring their customers service in the subway. From the vantage of the cage, you can see tons of communications, fiber, and radio equipment from Verizon, AT&T, Sprint, and T-Mobile."

"A lot of it is made by the folks over at Alcatel-Lucent, while the rest is made by Ericsson and other assorted manufacturers."

I'm going to guess... 50% market share for ALU, 30% for ERIC, and 20% other.

"The aspect that makes the smart grid so useful — it’s interconnectedness — is what also makes it most vulnerable. Every connected device is another entry point into the overall network and affords an opportunity for tampering. Many of these devices are also connected via the Internet, providing direct access to anyone with the device’s IP address. Furthermore, a breach into one part of the network can expose every other part of the network."

"According to a recent article in India's Business Standard, ZTE aims to introduce some kind of 5G prototype by 2015. Xu Juijun, senior vice president of ZTE's wireless business, said the vendor has some 1,000 engineers working on 5G."

Vitesse employee total is half of the above, yet the company continues to innovate and bring needed products to customers.

phobos, could Vitesse become a power in the Iot world??

" The good news is that as IoT networks increasingly move to Ethernet, they can leverage the stringent MEF-standardized service-definitions for “Carrier Ethernet.” We expect that low power, industrial-hardened and MEF CE 2.0-compliant equipment will play a growing role in industrial IoT settings.

"We expect to see 256-bit strong encryption, such as outlined in NIST’s FIPS 197 standard for AES encryption, to be the minimum requirement in Ethernet-based IoT networks. Further, given the IoT’s stringent timing and synchronization requirements, OEMs will look to ‘secure 1588’ technologies which provide 256-bit level encryption without compromising network timing."

" Organisations need to limit the scope of access from unauthorised parties as much as possible and assume that their networks have already been infected.

Next organisations will need to take steps to cleanse the network from threats and ensure each node can be trusted to convey the right information.

Unless organisations need to wake up to the Internet of Threats and realise that a major cyber attack on a nationwide scale is not just a possibility, but an inevitability."

Phobos, I consider the following post to be your most frightening.
http://www.networkcomputing.com/cloud-infrastructure/the-looming-iot-backlash/a/d-id/1269531?_mc=RSS_NWC_EDT

" if software preempts our own brains by making "mundane" decisions for us, don't we lose part of what's great about being human? If we blindly follow what AI tells us is the "right" decision, we'll likely end up all making the same life choices."

"Another critical issue involves the mass aggregation of big data and the abuse of power by those who collect it."

"This is not only possible with health care, but also with many other facets of our lives. If we make decisions that do not align with what a corporate or government entity mandates, we could be punished for it."

"At one time, these were opinions expressed only by a small fringe group of conspiracy theorists"

"Mark my words: People will soon wake up and realize that technology should be used as a tool to further expand human individuality and privacy, not destroy it."


i consider this to be the most frightening because of the above sentence,

Opportunity for Intellisec??

"Ultimately, said the IT consultant, Chinese banks will only manage to kill off IOE systems if products made by Chinese suppliers can provide comparable security and capacity levels, and if the new hardware and software are compatible."

"Chu Zhuang, chief information officer at trust firm Citic Trust, said China wants to encourage the use of new technology that will help banks develop Internet financing and open-source cloud computing. These interests overshadow information-security concerns, he said.

"Some critics of the X86, open-source software and cloud-computing systems say they’re more difficult to manage than IOE systems and pose more security risks. Kang Jianming, president of the online-payment company Shanghai Fuiou Payment Service Co., said hackers may successfully target banks that switch to homegrown systems."

phobos,

interesting articles, though very frustrating to continue reading stories that contain a very long list of companies that are likely to succeed in the IoT market, and then to not see Vitesse listed anywhere. The way in which the IoT system is being built, is it not correct to say that in a very high percentage, each signal transmitted by each IoT member will be using a Vitesse product on both ends to make that connection safe and or possible? Many of these companies are across the board Vitesse customers making a great number of these connections capable (that is a great number of $$ connections$$) Difficult to understand why this company constantly continues to fly under the radar during newsworthy events. Is this because of the Vitesse past or maybe because of the across the board client relationship, or maybe because we have yet to produce any significant revenue is the reason why. accepting the fact that Vitesse is listed on the 2014 Russell 3000 is out of the ordinary and something I had to look at a number of times to realize that it is actually true.

" or maybe because we have yet to produce any significant revenue is the reason why."
BINGO! BINGO!! BINGO!!!!

@christ3opher: it really is mind boggling how little attention VTSS is receiving. The question is "will the gap between expectations and results narrow or widen in the coming months?" Let's see what the beginning of August tells us.

@GARIF: I don't think the NSA is sophisticated enough to mess with the chips themselves. I would guess they do something in firmware to facilitate eavesdropping. I think chip-makers are safe... but having said that, equipment makers would probably prefer to source locally, all other things being equal. I think VTSS has a long history will Bell Labs (CRG and Lou were both alumni), then Lucent after that, and now Alcatel-Lucent. VTSS has a history there that they never had with companies like CSCO. Although with CSCO, they now have an "in" with Meraki.

It's hard to keep track...

DeepSAFE, INTELLISEC'S competitor?

"To provide protection that works below the operating system, hardware-assisted technology is required. An example of such advanced security technology is McAfee DeepSAFE, which was developed jointly by Intel and McAfee. The hardware component of DeepSAFE operates independently of the operating system and as a result cannot be directly corrupted by malware. This serves to strengthen overall security within the device by hardening it deep in the computing stack or below the rootkits."

DeepSafe seems to be AV protection:

http://www.tomshardware.com/news/McAfee-DeepSAFE-malware-rootkit-Paul-Otellini,13436.html

Intellisec would seem to be encryption:

http://www.vitesse.com/carrier-ethernet/ce-intellisec

I don't think they are competitive products.

Could anyone clarify further?

Mr. Mudoi is still around... good find GARIF.

Quoted from above:

"As noted above, small cells need to be inexpensive. That makes them extremely sensitive to overall equipment cost, power requirements and size. Especially when the small cell is located on a lamppost or the side of a building, carriers want the smallest unit possible, something that can be powered remotely and that draws as little power as possible. But how can small cells securely encrypt the data without an IPsec processor? The short answer is IEEE 802.1AE security encryption, also known as MACsec, which operates at Layer 2 of the OSI stack. The beauty of MACsec encryption is that it doesn’t need a lot of processing. Traditionally, MACsec has been limited to link-based, box-to-box applications, making it difficult for operators to deploy over networks facing latency issues over multi-hop connections. New technologies, however, implement MACsec in the PHY and allow operators to encrypt network traffic end-to-end at Layer 2. This is especially important as your data travels through third-party networks (i.e. those not owned by your carrier) where the backhaul links are shared by multiple service providers. This flexibility to use MACsec in the small cell networks offers significant capex and opex savings for carriers. And because MACsec is an IEEE standard, the new technologies that allow it to scale effectively for network-wide security are completely interoperable with network equipment from other vendors."

DeepSafe is NOT competitive with Intellisec.

Do keep in mind GARIF, that CRG saw the potential of Ethernet at the networks' edge, wireless, SMB/SME, and eventually in the carriers themselves. IoT and storage snuck up on VTSS and bit them in the *ss, which I think in no way diminishes what management has accomplished. Early on they decided to go for the most rapidly growing markets with the most potential to grow really big. In the grand scheme of things it is much better to be lucky than good. These guys have been both.

Wouldn't this be better for Vitesse??

"By comparison, the goal of the IIC (Intel + IBM + Cisco + AT&T + Microsoft) is the establishment of use cases and standards requirements for IoT implementations in business and government. The idea here is the cultivation of customers, as well as an investment center in the customer playing a greater role in defining the IoT than the manufacturer. But one of the IIC's undertones is the inclusion of, if not the outright preference for, existing and legacy infrastructures--using the technologies out there today without inventing new ones. That makes sense, coming from an organization founded by companies with the greatest stake in old and existing equipment and standards."

"Wouldn't this be better for Vitesse??"

To know, you would have to define "legacy infrastructure". VTSS is depending upon the adoption of many new technologies and that the intelligence of the network shifts toward the network's edge. Ethernet is definitely a legacy protocol, but infrastructure implies hardware and topology as well.

The short answer: I don't know.

You may want to look this over before deciding:

Ultimately, what MSFT means by infrastructure may be different from what VTSS means.

long live wireless, hands free, brain cooking devices, not to mention BEES disorienting gadgets... i wish more companies and specially the dummies in love with these DNA altering/affecting specially for young developing kids toys, would pause and think, think, beyond the joy of the moment.

While galavanting in Hanover NH, I approached a lady wearing a "love The Planet" shirt and shared with her how dangerous our cellies are said to be by many experts, specially for young kids; "I have a 7 year old I refuse to give him a phone" replied the proud mom. But you're giving it to your fetus, I chimed as she was as it turned out 6 month pregnant.

"Over past months, a number of companies in the data center ecosystem, including [equipment] vendors and the data center operators themselves, have recognized that this is a potential optimization point for performance and specifically performance per unit cost in the access layer of their networks, meaning the interface layer that goes between the server and the top-of-rack switch."

The IEEE is considering a study group on 25-Gig, he adds, but in the meantime, the rapid expansion of cloud services, both in type and volume, is creating a greater sense of urgency within the data center world.

Broadcom Raises Small-Cell Bid

“All vendors target small cells, but TI and Freescale also offer and have greater presence in macro cells. Because of software compatibility across basestations of different sizes, TI and Freescale have an advantage over Broadcom,” Linley Group analyst Jag Bolaria told EE Times. “Broadcom, however, can boast a more complete product line and greater breadth of complementary products such as WiFi, DSL, PON, Ethernet -- the latter are particularly important in residential and small offices.” (what if, for example Freescale bought Vitesse? Would that enable Freescale to compete better with Broadcom? Interesting idea. -ed.)

http://www.eetimes.com/document.asp?doc_id=1323107&

"There was speculation during the period that Broadcom may acquire Mellanox to grab Ethernet share. Broadcom has a market cap of about $22.1 billion and a dividend yield near 1.3 percent. The operating margin is greater than the industry average but less than larger rivals Qualcomm and Texas Instruments."

Absolutely! that we're riding at the top of this WAVE!!

Vitesse CTO Martin Nuss said, "Cloud approaches to manage and automate unified Enterprise wired and wireless deployments have fundamentally changed requirements for Enterprise Edge aggregation. Scaling the wired and wireless .11ac deployments, however, requires much better and granular packet flow classification capability to manage and enforce policies network-wide and optimize user experience for rich media content and critical business applications. Vitesse Ethernet technologies and product portfolio are uniquely positioned to capitalize on this industry transition and solve other problems at the Enterprise Edge, including supporting Wave 2 802.11ac upgrades."

Plenty of money to be made for the solvers of Security issues, lets hope Vitesse is among the few.

"4G might claim to take mobile devices to the next level; however, if its network structure and security levels are not up to the mark, it might soon lose customers. Mobile operators will have to focus on comprehensive and consistent security measures. Networks, apps, and devices – 4G has to ensure that none of these components are left unguarded, and a user’s personal information never falls into the hands of cybercriminals.'

"Thanks in part to the advent of 4G LTE networks, service providers are back in an upgrade cycle, and spending on voice systems is on the rise. Revenues for the carrier IP telephony market grew about 19% in the first quarter of 2014 and are likely to increase in the coming year driven by the rise of Voice over LTE (VoLTE) and the need to replace aging 2G and 3G gear."

The Google-AT&T Fiber Rivalry Is Good News for This Company (Adtran)

"...ADTRAN beat consensus estimates in the second quarter. Its top line improved around 9% from last year, while operating income jumped an impressive 38% year over year.

"In April, AT&T laid out its plan of rolling out fiber-optic services to 100 cities and municipalities in the U.S. Ma Bell will provide speeds of up to 1 Gigabit per second to 21 new metro areas. This move from AT&T is likely in response to Google's fiber initiatives."

You're right about Siklu GARIF. Just look on page 125 of the following document:

http://europro.rs/Siklu/Siklu%20EH-1200%20Install%20&%20Full%20User%20Manual.pdf

"Siklus TC is based on Vitesse VSC8574 HW stamping and distributed TC algorithm to synchronize the 2 ends of the link. The synchronization error between the 2 sides and as a results the correction field accuracy should be <100ns and comply with the most stringent accuracy level required (accuracy class level 6) on all of the Ethernet ports."

Siklu uses "VeriTime".

You truly are doing some serious vitesse homework Phobos! thanks for your energy...

The following talks about Marvell, but the same question could have been asked about Vitesse.
http://www.fool.com/investing/general/2014/07/17/heres-how-marvell-technology-has-opened-up-a-huge.aspx

Notice how there is no mention of Timing & Sync something Vitesse considers vital for IoT,

"Evidently, the company is trying to touch each corner of the IoT opportunity, and if it succeeds in any one, then its financial performance can take off like never before."

Similarly so would our financial performance,

"With a mix of hardware and software expertise, Marvell is trying to accelerate the deployment times of original equipment manufacturers for bringing new IoT applications.'

We're not trying we've been doing it! correct??

"Marvell also sells storage chips, which is another way it might profit from the Internet of Things. Seagate and Western Digital contribute approximately 36% to Marvell's top line, and both of these storage companies should see a bump in demand due to the growing requirement for storage."

"Data center capacity will have to be upgraded to address the huge influx of data. Already, both Western Digital and Seagate are seeing strong demand from enterprise customers,"

Thus crg's heavy spending on Seagates new approach(in my opinion).

"Being in the good books of Cisco should help Marvell's IoT endeavors."

opening opportunities for Marvell/Vitesse to sell more of its products.

Hell, they are our #1 customer!!!!!!!!! we are definitely riding on the coat of Cisco.

A very uplifting story on Marvell. very confusing though. if Vitesse is THE only supplier that focuses on timing, security and power then why has no one ever written a story in so much detail about the little POS called VITESSE ????

Aahhhhhh, it would not be because of the fact that Vitesse has yet to produce a quarter with significant revenue? very strange

According to Crg from the Dec,4 2012 call,

"based on our strong design win performance
in 2011 and 2012, we expect this type of growth to continue over the next several
years. Second, in 2012 we continued to take market share from our competition in
critical markets. Our SynchroPHY physical air solutions and our unique Carrier
Ethernet Switch engines have contributed to more than 300 total design wins in
2012, making our two-year total over 600 design wins. We estimate the lifetime
value of these design wins at over $500 million. Third, we strengthened our
market position in the critical IP Edge markets, particularly in the fastest-growing
segment, infrastructure for mobile access. In 2012 we closed more than 50 design
wins at leading OEMs in IP Edge, including Huawei, Alcatel-Lucent, Ericsson,
Cisco, Juniper, Nokia Siemens, DragonWave, Samsung and ZTE. Today nearly
50 percent of our design wins are in this market as we successfully transition the company away from the SONET core to the Ethernet IP Edge."

" As an example, our VeriTime packet
timing technology for 4G LTE networks has been adopted by over 50 customers,
including most of the market leaders."

"We’re currently addressing new opportunities for both our Gigabit
Ethernet PHY and Gigabit Ethernet Switch Core within consumer, industrial,
machine-to-machine and automotive applications that are looking to adopt
Ethernet technology."
(remember! just like Marvell if we succeed in any one , our financial performance could take off like never before also).

Since according to Crg it takes from 12 to 36 months for design Wins to start paying... The "quarters with significant revenue' should be arriving starting next week Christ3.

A strong Q3 should loosen the wallets of fund buyers, as we could be THAT DIAMOND IN THE ROUGH!!

PEACE

Agreed to what is being said GARIF, but let us get into reality when it involves Vitesse. You, I and many others specifically know what has occurred over the last EIGHT years, when it comes down to what is said and what actually occurs.

we ALL have been previously told that Vitesse would be at break even and would be producing a plus $30M in Quarter 3. Quarter 2 we were then told " we expect to be at or NEAR that target" and that projected revenue would be in the " range between $26.5 and $28.5 million". so the wheels have already begin to come off !!!.

Maybe this is the reason why trading volume is nil. we still have two weeks to see if the above story turns positive.
or
maybe CEO Gardner has FINALLY realized the importance of "under promise and over deliver" ( I seriously doubt it )

All WE know is that it has been a very long eight years of BABBLE from the Vitesse management team. I, for one will be ecstatic if Quarter 3 is a $30 M Quarter. ( after the many years of let downs I STILL doubt it !!! )

Whistling past the graveyard. From the continuing action on the stock, it certainly doesn't look like anyone seems to agree with the $30 million Q3 concept. It doesn't even look as if they think the debt will be paid with the money from shares issued. I bet it won't affect bonuses however - good job VTSS. Continuing on trajectory - but for what? 2 weeks and I am ready for another bad news story - that's what the Market is telling us - an they haven't been wrong on this puppy yet.

If there is another horrible quarter, then we were lied to. There's no other way around it. The competition is coming up with "me too" products, vtss' customers are experiencing growth, and the overall world economy seems to be recovering. I could see a bottom line that is poor due to added SG&A costs in other areas, but I can't see an on-going anemic top-line. Concsensus BE was just north of $29M. I would at least like to see VTSS reach the consensus estimate (still a loss) and prove everyone wrong. Unfortunately, the smart money usually knows before the call what's happening, and the slow bleed does not bode well. Thank God it's on very low volume, so it may not mean anything.

On the plus side of the ledger, the declne has been on low volume as you stated phobos, BM has increased his position, good product line, infusion of cash from last stock sale.

On negative side, number one is bad management, terrible track record of meeting commitments, technically we have broken down, debt still overhanging company. We may need a selling squall on heavy volume to wash out willing sellers and build new base. CRG can always do another reverse split!

If we have another horrible quarter it would mean that competitors "me too products" did better than just close the gap against Vitesse.

" We obviously made great progress in the quarter, growing 29
percent sequential. But whether we can get to the 55, I think, is just basically due
to windage(?) and how customers come in for us in the end of Q3 and into Q4. So
I’d say we’re still going after it, but we admitted last quarter it was definitely a
tougher goal than when we put it out there in September."

Los Angeles, March 4, 2014 — The MEF (Metro Ethernet Forum) is pleased to provide an industry update on its Carrier Ethernet 2.0 Services, CE 2.0 Network Equipment, and MEF Professional Certification programs, all of which have become increasingly popular worldwide over the past year.
CE 2.0 Services Certification. Just 12 months after the announcement of the first CE 2.0 Certified Service Provider, there are now 21 CE 2.0 Providers with 87 CE 2.0 Services in 10 countries. CE 2.0 certifications for service providers grew at double the rate of CE 1.0 certifications in an equivalent period of time, and the number of services certified in 4Q 2013 equalled the total for all the services certified in the first three quarters of 2013.
“We have a healthy pipeline of service providers moving through the CE 2.0 certification process.” said Kevin Vachon, Chief Operating Officer of the MEF. “We are particularly excited about growing interest in CE 2.0 E-Access Certification, which enables retail CE 2.0 service provides to extend their coverage via partnerships with wholesale providers in a more efficient, cost-effective manner.”
“When judging the 2013 MEF Carrier Ethernet awards for service providers, it was clear that numerous finalists and winners regarded CE 2.0 certification, planned certification, or compliance as an important competitive differentiator,” said Rosemary Cochran, Principal at Vertical Systems Group. “Looking at the U.S. market in particular, our firm’s 2013 Carrier Ethernet LEADERBOARD analysis revealed that the top-ranked company in the incumbent, competitor, and MSO Ethernet provider segments already has gained CE 2.0 certification. Additionally, the fastest growing company on the U.S. LEADERBOARD, was the first to be CE 2.0 certified.”
CE 2.0 Network Equipment Certification. Today, there are 31 CE 2.0 Certified Network Equipment Vendors with more than 120 CE 2.0 platforms. The widespread availability and increasing deployment of CE 2.0 network platforms is a critical enabler of CE 2.0 Services Certification growth.
MEF Certified Professionals. Over the past year, the number of MEF Certified Professionals has tripled to more than 1,700 in 224 organizations in 58 countries. 87% of MEF Certified Professionals are employed by MEF member companies, and 62% are employed by service providers.

"Doesn't Ericsson's report assure a 30 million plus Q for us???"

Now take Ericsson and add the results and bullish outlook of that of Alcatel-Lucent. Hmmm.

How could it not happen? Production has to be ramping.

Agreed phobos,

this is a legitimate reason WHY, this time ( one of many that were before past failures ) we have proof that Vitesse is moving forward with their product line. years before we had not come across, not even close to the amount of stories stating that Vitesse customers were actually showing a rise in revenue. BUT, then again just look at trading volume and that will give you an answer. We are all waiting for the ACTUAL rise in revenue to be physically announced before those who have an interest, will decide to buy. many times over investors have been severely burnt by the actions of the present management team regarding $$$$.

Perhaps too, the addition to the Russell was in preparation for those still on the sidelines to buy-in at long last. The stars would seem to be aligning.

My only worry, as I've mentioned before, is that VTSS is around a 50/50 mix of new and legacy products. I'm just worried that if the new products ramp, the legacy lines will tank and lead to disappointing overall top-line results.

I'm just going to have to keep an eye on revenues from the new products, and their growth rate, the design wins (given that new markets have just been entered we should continue to see sustained to accelerated growth there), and just hold my nose that these are not audited metrics.

I really don't see how this time (this time will be different! ...right) vtss could have had "softness in China", or other equally embarrassing fubar: this is it.

Actually the company has snatched victory from the mouth of "defeat"! The company is a SURVIVOR! but now we're hoping the time has arrived for her to THRIVE(turn a profit) and continue on such trajectory.

The future is this QQQ, buyers are waiting on the sidelines to see us beat the lowball numbers, 30M would do the job followed with raised G for Q4. 31 million for Q3 plus raised "G" along with clearer picture of INTELLISECS penetration, would really drive buyers insane!!!

"Evidently, the company is trying to touch each corner of the IoT opportunity, and if it succeeds in any one, then its financial performance can take off like never before."

The above quote is about Marvell, but if a smaller company succeeds heavily in any one thing, hell its roof could fall off...
Imagine announcements/clearer hints about having Salesforce, Google, Amazon, Microsoft, SAP, or Facebook as customers??

Don't laugh but I believe Intelli/VeriT and our Storage abilities make this very possible!! in fact I believe 3 of those companies to be using our products, Microsoft, Google, Salesforce, in due time we shall know the truth.

Peace

Interesting read from Juniper. Between contracts slipping and M&A activity, it's difficult to know what's going on. There will likely be more clarity at the call.

phobos,

as you continue to list the headings that come about on a daily basis,( unbelievable in the amount of work that is involved ) the number of headings continues to grow more and more as the days go by. Since the majority of headings have something directly to do with Vitesse, one would have to believe that this company has finally developed their product line into something worth producing. Here we are again in the drought of released news as we wait for the upcoming quarterly call. In less than two weeks Vitesse will finally be releasing one of their most important conference calls to date.

christ3opher,

the posts have either something to do with vtss (not much recently), their customers, their markets, or their competitors.

I can't imagine that we've seen accelerating design wins for new product since 2011, we've entered new markets (IoT, storage (re-entered), and just recently Gigabit WiFi), and that the growth in new product revenues are not about to overtake the decline in legacy product revenues.

VTSS has aligned itself with Seagate in storage, Fortinet is among the leaders in virtual network security (see above), and ALU and Ericsson seem to have the carrier class markets all sewn up. Oh, and we licensed vtss' switching technology to Freescale (who I believe is number two in network processors).

How could this be a bad earnings call?

Similar to Enrico Fermi's question when asked if he thought there was extra terrestrial life ("If there is extraterrestrial life, then where are they?"), if this is not a good call, we might all be forced to ask:

"If business is so good, then where are the revenues?"

I'm sure VTSS is being ultraconservative in booking sales after getting caught years ago booking product sales way before acceptable accounting rules.

As i've stated before, I also think another contributing factor is a poor sales force/sales management that just doesn't execute.

"Market Research Reports has produced The Wireless Network Infrastructure Bible: 2014 – 2020 - Macrocell RAN, Small Cells, RRH, DAS, Cloud RAN, Carrier WiFi, Mobile Core & Backhaul, and in it sees an impressive future for all things NFV and SDN with the so-called ‘Cloud RAN’ concept. This is where signal encoding/decoding and other RAN (radio access network) functions are moved about in software, perhaps onto a local backhaul node or even whisked back across the network into a data centre. All with an eye to optimising performance, resilience and, importantly, cost."

Vitesse has been helping customers for all of the above,
https://www.vitesse.com/campaigns/downloads/ConvergeNetworkDigest-Vitesse-CTO-Viewpoint-17-12-2013.pdf

"Fortinet comes out first due to its highly modular network security solutions for the VM space, offering the most comprehensive VM product lines currently on the market. Not only does it have support for various network requirements, it has invested significantly in a wide-ranging and varied security feature set for a dedicated VM product line that can be easily integrated and assimilated.''

''
Alcatel-Lucent Enterprise's portfolio diversity was also credited with being "Very Strong" because it offers a full range of products from 10/100 Mbps access switches to high-density 40GbE core switches."

Many of our customers are Thriving indeed, Fortinet and lucent are just 2 of many examples,

“Like the mobile revolution, IoT will create new companies and new categories. The importance of IoT expands beyond “pure play” enablers… as the market begins to take shape {and} continues to evolve; we expect a similar ecosystem of software vendors to develop.”

Is IoT about to help us morph, will we soon find that Vitesse is deeply embedded in the IoT plumbing?

phobos, this is quite a unique approach from Airvana! Vitesse continues to play roles in disruptive/novel approaches,

"“There’s a clear interest among operators in serving indoor enterprise environments with scalable, distributed solutions that are also cost-effective. OneCell is well-distinguished from solutions that address this space using macrocell baseband units, and is particularly attractive compared to the cost of traditional Distributed Antenna Systems,” said Ed Gubbins, senior analyst with Current Analysis. “Airvana has an established track record and credibility in small cells, and solutions such as OneCell that use standard Ethernet LANs in these scenarios will be compelling to operators and enterprises alike.”

" Regardless of location and size, operators must provide Small Cell networks with at least the same level of security that is expected from the mobile network. “Small Cells are inevitable parts of future mobile networks, but IP-based backhaul and location risks, like being out of operator direct reach and open to public access, leave the network exposed to various possible attacks,” warns Ahmed Ali, research analyst at ABI Research.'

" a Small Cells security structure must restrain any possible new security threat that may arise,” continues Ali."

INTELLISEC was born for such necessities!

Crg! I know you read our drivel from time to time, please shed more light/specifics on the traction of INTELLISEC next week. It would be interesting/fascinating to know how many customers have adopted the INTELLISEC/VeriTime solution.
Thanks for giving us some love on the kinetic's connection.

"LTE has emerged as the first truly global mobile communications standard. Commonly marketed as the “4G” standard, LTE promises to provide higher data rates and lower latency at a much lower Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) than 3G technologies."

"Huawei and Ericsson lead the LTE infrastructure market with a combined market share of 44%
Samsung is expected to significantly increase its stake in LTE infrastructure contracts, and eventually become a Tier-1 vendor by 2017"

With nearly ALL the infrastructure vendors as customers, could VeriTime be becoming a standard also?

"Over the last few years, several advanced computing technologies and services have been introduced to improve the computing process. As a result, the demand for data centers is increasing among enterprises and end-users worldwide. With the increased demand for online computing and the adoption of cloud computing services, the number of new data centers established across GCC countries has increased exponentially. GCC countries have been experiencing a high adoption of modern IT equipment to cater to the growing computing and storage demands. Data center service providers and enterprises are procuring various supporting solutions such as DCIM solutions, advanced cooling systems, modern UPS, and racks that give high-level computing performance."

Data centers, Data Centers! could it be that INTELLISEC is nestled in the middle of most of them allowing for safe linkage/communication?? are we alone in that capability???

Connecting Islands of Industrial IoT

"In a May interview, Linley Group's Loring Wirbel described these newer networks as "islands of IP addressability surrounded by vast oceans of unmanaged stuff," with the IP-addressable islands accounting for only about 20% of the industrial networks currently operating. That means that about 80% of the potential IIoT market remains unleveraged."

Carrier opportunities: How to expand the potential of Ethernet outside the WAN

"Infonetics expects a total of £110 billion to have been spent on Carrier Ethernet equipment between 2012 and 2016, arguing that £19 billion was spent in 2011 alone. The amount of global business bandwidth contributed by Ethernet services surpassed that of legacy systems in 2012, and the contribution is expected to reach 75 per cent by 2017. The growth rate is likely to slow as most legacy systems are replaced, but the increasing demand for data shows no signs of abating. According to Cisco, fixed Internet connection bandwidth requirements will have grown on average at a rate of 32 per cent every year between 2010 and 2015. Mobile data usage will have grown by an average 92 per cent every year."

Zyxel and Fortinet continue to bring wonderful products to market flowered with Vitesse parts. Xilinx still a customer correct?

"A lot of vendors are starting to go to a unified mobile security platform. And that is the core of where the future of mobile security is headed. It is merging the security at the application layer, the operating system layer and the network layer into a single platform," said Tyler Fields, an analyst for Forrester Research who covers mobile security, at the event. Those vendors "that make the unified platform will succeed in the long run," he said."

Security issues are the talk of the town, I truly hope Crg gives a better breakdown on the progress of our SECURITY solutions.

http://finance.yahoo.com/news/cisco-broadens-storage-networking-portfolio-120000653.html

our top customers on roller coaster rides,

"“There was a dichotomy,” Eric Beaudet, an analyst at Natixis, said in a note. While part of Alcatel’s earnings benefited from the growth in new-generation mobile technology in countries like China and the U.S., the rest was “disappointing,” Beaudet said.'

"Softer’ Business

Second-quarter reports by Nokia and Ericsson beat estimates, with the companies projecting a recovery in carrier spending. Ericsson’s sales and profit margins were helped by contracts in China and the Middle East, also fueling expectations for a strong report from Alcatel-Lucent.

“Much of the business looked softer, with the exception of wireless,” George C. Notter, an analyst at Jefferies LLC, said in a note. “The shares already price in a very bullish outcome from the company’s cost-reduction efforts.”

@christ3opher --> I have been wondering why vtss does not do more business with cable companies since they too seem to be involved with Ethernet and be involved at the network's edge (and storage), like vtss' other customers. Is it just that there are bigger fish to fry and that vtss has more of a traditional connection to telecom and enterprise than to cable? Is the equipment essentially the same? I don't know.

@satbob --> I don't doubt that the overall market is overvalued, or that vtss, based upon its future prospects and current valuation, could very well be undervalued. Let's pay particular attention to the growth in new product revenue and the growth in design wins during the earnings call. Yes, these are not audited metrics, but they should be traceable to top-line performance eventually. If the design wins don't start showing up soon, CRG will be facing a hostile crowd at the earnings call (including the analysts, who will hopefully put aside the usual softball questions - unless Needham is immanently going to be the beneficiary of yet another dilutive public offering).

...busy day today. I will pick up my scanning the news later on.

Why Applied Micro Circuits (AMCC) Stock Is Down Today

while reading the above article on AMCC:

" we believe APM's material time-to market advantage should yield solid X-Gene sales growth near term, and even a niche share within the $12B+ server market eager for new competition should allow APM to achieve its target to double quarterly sales for the company exiting C2016. However, we now anticipate a more linear progression toward this revenue level. which lead to the price target decrease. analyst said. "

AMCC price target was lowered to $12 from $16 .

the " X-Gene" is where Vitesse will be receiving a royalty off the products that are sold. and the way analysts are looking at it, Vitesse will be receiving their royalty checks in a more" drawn out " manner. which is OK as long as whizz CEO Gardner has not been expecting those payments to be more up front than what they will be.

I would suggest that AMCC is in trouble because of the following:

http://finance.yahoo.com/news/applied-micro-ships-microserver-chips-003500296.html

AMCC is challenging INTC... really? What are they thinking? Also, AMCC has an outrageously high valuation --> P/S is above 3... and these days that's high. AMCC is headed to the very low $7 range with a more reasonable P/S of around 2.5... similar to competitor PMCS.

PMCS at the close today:

"ABI listed data privacy threats, service fraud, denial of service, and operation malfunctioning as some of the security threats posed by the outdoor small cells and cautioned operators that pre-emptive measures are crucial to ensure that subscribers' confidence in the network is not impacted. ABI recommended a wide range of security measures including storing credentials in protected unit, authenticating femto and core mutually and performing location verification which are required for main functions such as device booting and establishment of core connection."

Years of preparation has allowed us to become a go to for ''pre-emptive measures"

"Yes, these are not audited metrics, but they should be traceable to top-line performance eventually. If the design wins don't start showing up soon, CRG will be facing a hostile crowd at the earnings call (including the analysts, who will hopefully put aside the usual softball questions - unless Needham is immanently going to be the beneficiary of yet another dilutive public offering)."

So much on the line my friends with CREDIBILITY at the heart of it all... were the "design wins" given juicier colors? will Crg deliver finally(never has)? the world waits on the sidelines waiting to see if the company has truly shed its fathers style of CREATIVE TINKERING.

Good article GARIF. It is a competitive field.

If vtss doesn't wind up as number one or two in its market, the only thing to do is what former GE Chairman Jack Welch used to say, "If you're not number one or two in the market, then you either have to fix it, sell it , or close it down."

I hope that whatever the outcome that there is decisive action and that the company doesn't continue to struggle along for years with the only people making money those at the top of management.

If vtss can't emerge from this build-out as a market leader, then they need to sell this company (if they still can at that time) in order to maximize shareholder returns. Period. No excuses.

If the management can't bring themselves to such a decision, then, at such time, I need to sell my investment and just recognize the loss as a sunk cost.

This should all become more obvious in a year or two, much of that during the next earnings call.

I don't know if this sychronizes the clocks across the network though, which is what IEEE1588 does (vtss' particular version they've called "sychrophy"). This sounds like it's for creating clock frequencies within a device. I don't know that this is competition out on the network.

I marvel at Vitesse engineering as for years they've had to make do with little money and yet find ways to bring relevant products to market; soon we shall know if these products are starting to hit the home-runs we've been waiting for.

"Step 3: Adopt a converged approach
A converged approach means combining the optical and packet layers into a single network platform and locating IP routers only where needed, such as within the data center. The converged approach is more cost-effective for aggregating and switching lower-speed traffic in the metro network, and far simpler."

I'm going to post just one link here today:

http://recode.net/2014/08/14/cisco-ceo-chambers-defends-plan-for-job-cuts/

CSCO is dealing with its own (lack of) hockey stick:

"Sales to the data center grew 30 percent but accounted for only $772 million in revenue during the quarter or about six percent of sales. Security grew by 29 percent, but amounted to only $447 million or about four percent of sales."

Aren't those data center sales routers of a sort that must contain switches?

"Its biggest business, switching, which accounts for 30 percent of revenue, declined year on year to $3.7 billion, down four percent. Routing, which accounts for 16 percent of sales, fell seven percent to $1.9 billion."

I guess not (?). After parsing a little more BS we get to what could be the heart of the problem:

"One factor that hasn’t hurt Cisco’s results, he says, was the allegation made in a book based on documents leaked by Edward Snowden concerning supposed back doors being installed in Cisco-made gear. The documents, which included photos, alleged that the U.S. National Security Agency had intercepted equipment from Cisco and other manufacturers while in transit and loaded them with surveillance software. The photos, which were never independently verified, appeared to show NSA technicians working with Cisco equipment. Cisco is not said to have cooperated in the NSA’s efforts, and Chambers reiterated that during the interview."

It all boils down to security. Interesting.

The above bodes well for Vitesse, remember that Cisco was our first Storage customer.
Lets hope future results don't take a big hit from the Snowden..

Is the above good news for Vitesse or are we on the sidelines here too??
"as goes China so goes Vitesse"
Hasn't infrastructure been part of the goings on in China for years?? or can it be that competitors have gotten the bulk of this "infrastructure" work over Vitesse?

My goodness, YES, YES! even VIP, didn't catch this...
I believe now like never before that the design Wins are genuine because the big buyers would not have purchased without this re-assurance.

So yes, vitesse parts are in many places, germinating and will soon produce the results we been waiting for.

Whose doing best in LTE-A?

indeed vitesse seems to be all over this area, even Radisys might be a customer along with Airspan by way of Jarvis,
http://investor.vitesse.com/releasedetail.cfm?ReleaseID=672469

"To manage these speeds and to also allow greater penetration of signal into buildings, the mobile network providers have had to shift from an infrastructure of macrocells to small cells, with base stations that are able to control each other so there is less overlap in signal and can also allow joint transmission of data, which is much faster."

Is this where Vitesse is thriving, the infrastructure work crg has talked about?

"This is the latest security software to deal with problems that arise when companies adopt new technologies — specifically with software-defined networking, GuardiCore says. Investors have also recently backed security startups like Internet-of-things-focused Mocana and Elastica, which focuses on securing cloud application usage."

Our latest funding was successful in large part because of our INTELLISEC.

"HP notes in its report that while the technology is catching on fast, it is still in its early stages, giving manufacturers an opportunity to tighten security standards before more adopters are put at risk. Solution providers need to investigate those security concerns, related security products and craft a plan on how to protect customers from IoT compromises, while deriving some ongoing revenue at the same time."


According to Crg Switch designs are very strong, sounds like INTELLISEC is making many friends...

Thanks always for your posts phobos, I read through believe it or not all of them!! one thing is very clear from them,
THE LUST FOR TECHNOLOGICAL TOYS IS ALIVE AND WELL
Our little company has professed having key components for this out of control lust of ours, they just ask us to hang in there.
Soon we will produce as promised chimes our fearless leader! buyers of recent offerings with whom I am sure he shared some very personal information, liked what they saw/heard.
Today more than ever I am convinced the DESIGN wins were not a concoction, they are freaking real!!! the big boys did the due diligence for us, bless their hearts.

So we wait as the results of our involvement in this Technological madness starts producing serious results.

Peace

Gartner: IoT at least 5 years away from benefitting businesses

Being "5 years away from benefitting business" doesn't seem to be hurting VTSS:

"Design wins continued to be very strong. Thus far, in 2014, design wins are up over 45% compared with 2013. Many of these design wins are coming from new customers. With 90 new customers added so far this year, we're on track to beat the nearly 100 new customers added in 2013. Our focus in IoT is supporting this growth as it now accounts for about 30% of our new wins."

Operators are more focused on the drivers in the edge of the network. The outlook for routers: the edge segment, which is projected to reach $12.2 B in 2018, is three times the size of the core router market, which will increase $3.3 billion in 2018."

Internet of Things By The Numbers: Market Estimates And Forecasts

"Janus Bryzek, known as “the father of sensors” (and a VP at Fairchild Semiconductor), thinks there are multiple factors “accelerating the surge” in interest. First, there is the new version of the Internet Protocol, IPv6, “enabling almost unlimited number of devices connected to networks.” Another factor is that four major network providers—Cisco, IBM IBM -0.43%, GE and Amazon—have decided “to support IoT with network modification, adding Fog layer and planning to add Swarm layer, facilitating dramatic simplification and cost reduction for network connectivity.” Last but not least, Bryzek mentions new forecasts regarding the IoT opportunity, with GE estimating that the “Industrial Internet” has the potential to add $10 to $15 trillion (with a “T”) to global GDP over the next 20 years, and Cisco increasing to $19 trillion its forecast for the economic value created by the “Internet of Everything” in the year 2020. “This is the largest growth in the history of humans,” says Bryzek."

phobos,

your list is getting longer and longer, which is a good thing.

interesting story about Adtran and how the evolution of Ethernet is growing and will not be stopped. The only problem in the way is a lack of the all mighty dollar, which will slow things down, causing delays but will not keep from happening. Just how the Vitesse story is playing out.

""We asked carriers to name the top three," he said.
Frontrunners Alcatel-Lucent, Cisco, Huawei, and Juniper were also the leading vendors worldwide in router and Ethernet switch revenue market share, according to Infonetics. The second tier of vendors – as rated by services providers – was Adtran, Ciena, Ericsson, Overture Networks, Tellabs, and ZTE."


"WE ARE THE SWITCH KING" has chimed Crg in the past.
Agree phobos, "Everyone wants to be where Vitesse already is"
truly fascinating how ALL of the above are key customers of Vitesse, coincidence? I think not! it's due to great products from the little company.

Lets not forget the better margin "SWITCH" brings us. Vitesse sales team must be having fun piggy backing behind Intelli/VeriT...

How Is Marvell addressing the Internet of Things Opportunity?

"In the latest earnings call, the management highlighted that Marvell enhanced its family of SoC with Wi-Fi and Bluetooth (should VTSS have wi-fi and Bluetooth? - ed.)."

"Marvell also sells storage chips, which is another way it might profit from the Internet of Things. Seagate and Western Digital contribute approximately 36% to Marvell's top line, and both of these storage companies should see a bump in demand due to the growing requirement for storage. The IoT will result in huge streams of data which will be stored in data centers. (data centers and the IoT are connected... couldn't you think of a storage location as a 'thing'? - ed.)"

"Nowadays, mobile operators are ready to increase investments in their backhaul networks, and this presents huge opportunity for equipment vendors as well as service providers in the backhaul space. Also, with the rising popularity of small cells and Long-Term Evolution (LTE) deployments, the mobile and wireless backhaul market is ready to embrace new backhaul technology players who can offer cost-effective and high-performance solutions, especially in the small-cell space."

What Vitesse has been waiting to hear is here.

"and both of these storage companies should see a bump in demand due to the growing requirement for storage."

Would a company who has enhanced(security/timing) one of these companies product do even better??
Has Vitesse not made Seagate's Revolutionary product evolutionary???

Our association helping out nicely!

"75% of MNOs Say IP/MPLS and Carrier Ethernet Key to Delivering Fixed Communication Services for Enterprises (interesting that VTSS just released a carrier ethernet software mod along these lines - ed.)"

Vitesse continues to anticipate the need of the markets better then most. When you have meager resources you can't afford to be wrong! Thanks crg and team.

"In the last quarter sales of 10, 40 and 100 Gigabit Ethernet data center switches increased by one million ports. Cisco enjoyed much of the growth, gaining market share with its Nexus portfolio of data center switches, according to Crehan Research, which forecast a strong migration to higher Ethernet speeds as the price of switches drops significantly. Investors in new servers, such as Intel’s Grantley-based machines, are likely to demand 10 Gigabit Ethernet adapters to provide the supporting network structure, according to Crehan."

Great news for the "SWITCH KING" indeed!!!!

"Metrocells, as defined by iGR, are low power single sector-channel, independent small cells that can support several hundred users. They are essentially a small, independent base transceiver station (BTS) that is often deployed on lampposts or sides of buildings to support mobile data demand in dense metropolitan areas."

I see that VTSS (Nuss) is making the case for MACsec and IEEE1588, or VTSS' version of same.

Looking at the timing of Nuss' talk and the share price action yesterday, did Nuss push up the price of VTSS' shares by $0.05 ($3.4M of appreciation of shares out)?

Useless? in response to Christ, honest assessment of my contribution to the forum.

Vitesse seems to be more assertive these days, they seem to have realized that their products(veriT, Intelli) are truly unique; am I alone in seeing that many in the business are starting to give her the EF HUTTON response?

"O’Connell tells MobilityTechzone: “We are the first to market with a reference design for this, and it’s optimized.”

" So companies that want to play in this space will want to jump through the window of opportunity quickly"

"The company is a smaller competitor to Broadcom and Marvell, Mudoi said, but it’s a consistent innovator, and as a result wins a good share of business."

Board members used to comment about mass exodus of Vitesse employees, it's obvious today that no such thing happened.

So much for my privacy!!

"That problem exists in a nutshell in the medical equipment industry, according to Dr. Julian Goldman, director of medical device interoperability at Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston. The makers of various types of devices for monitoring patients’ health don’t design their products to share data or even acknowledge one another, so doctors can’t get as good information as they might, he said. For example, measurements taken by a blood oxygen sensor on a patient’s finger can be affected by the actions of a blood-pressure monitor that squeezes the patient’s arm, but the systems don’t automatically account for that effect, Goldman said.

“If we don’t look at the lessons today in health care, the Internet of Things is not going to be an Internet of Things, it’s going to be a pile of things,” Goldman said."

"In case you haven't noticed, the edge of the network is where everything is happening today."

"Why Ethernet?
The technology that is set to bring Ethernet broadband to the masses is Carrier Ethernet 2.0, the latest iteration of the standard created by the Metro Ethernet Forum. The first version of Carrier Ethernet inaugurated a robust set of standards for creating WAN connections over a single service provider's network. Two main types of service were defined, E-Line and E-LAN, which are aimed at point-to-point or point-to-multipoint connections and multipoint-to-multipoint, respectively. Both have virtual private and non-virtual private flavours. With the virtual private versions, services can be multiplexed over the same infrastructure, but this still doesn't mean services can be supplied to multiple customers in a commoditised fashion over the same infrastructure."

"Success is when hard work meets opportunity"

Years of preparation/anticipating has helped Vitesse become a leading Plumber in the industry.

"Imagine a world where smart systems, Internet of Things (IoT) sensors, and robotics combine to automate large areas of manufacturing, linking wired and wireless networks throughout the world in the making of products, and relying on both structured and unstructured big data to get the job done. McKinsey & Company describes smartmanufacturing as a "type of information system--through sensors and actuators embedded in physical objects...[where] processes govern themselves, where smart products take corrective action to avoid damages and where individual parts are automatically replenished."

"govern themselves, take corrective action, individual parts automatically replenished"

We have also been in stealth mode working for the past three years on the OneCell architecture and innovations, and now that the product is in trials, have decided to announce it. You will be hearing a lot more from Airvana because this is just the beginning -- there is much more to come.
