The Bit Report, March 15


  • The SBC IPOs Coming: No silly, I meant Session Border Controller initial public offerings are on deck for 2005. Or buyouts for that matter.
  • MCI-Q Not such a good idea: Robert Saunders of Eastern Management Group says the combination is a bad idea if there was any.
  • Colubris got money: WLAN switch company gets another $15 million in third round of funding, Dixon Doll is on the board now.
  • Broadband helps out NTL, helps cut losses aplenty but that doesn’t mean the bad news is over. Still has 1.33 million subscribers in UK.
  • WiMAX, 3G Cellular and WiFi, all in one. Bel-Air Networks is putting out a total buzzword compliant product in the market.
  • Optical Network Hardware demand, slowly inching up. “Service providers are depending more and more on DWDM and CWDM for a range of access applications, and are starting to build more metro rings, increasing their dependence on WDM as the eventual basic metro transport layer.
