RAD Touts New Gateway
TEL AVIV -- RAD Data Communications, the telecommunications vendor that developed and first introduced pseudowire solutions to the market nine years ago, has unveiled the IPmux-24 TDM pseudowire gateway, which maximizes operability in transporting legacy traffic over packet-switched networks (PSNs).Leased Line Solution for Alternative Carriers The IPmux-24 transparently emulates up to four E1/T1 TDM user traffic data streams over next generation Ethernet, IP and MPLS networks. "Alternative carriers wishing to offer leased-line legacy services over PSNs and incumbent carriers seeking a migration solution to packet-based infrastructure will find the IPmux-24 ideally suited for their needs," states Eyal Gabay, Senior Product Line Manager at RAD Data Communications. "In addition, the IPmux-24 is also a versatile solution for reducing operating costs (Opex) of corporate communications."Circuit Emulation Lowers Cellular Operator Opex A new adaptive clock recovery algorithm incorporated into the IPmux-24 greatly improves the ability to maintain high accuracy synchronization under changing traffic network loads. "This is critically important in the cellular environment," Gabay notes. "2G, CDMA and GSM cellular operators can substantially lower their Opex by using the IPmux-24 to run multi-generational mobile backhaul traffic over affordable PSNs using circuit emulation technology."Supports All Existing TDM Pseudowire Standards The IPmux-24 introduces a hardware platform featuring a multi-standard TDM pseudowire ASIC processor designed by RAD that supports all existing TDM pseudowire standards: TDMoIP(r), CESoPSN, SAToP, and HDLCoPSN. This enables all pseudowire solutions to be optimized in tandem with existing network infrastructure. In addition, the IPmux-24 will support up to three Gigabit Ethernet ports that can be ordered as SFP slots or built-in 100BaseT ports.
Opnext Reports Q4
EATONTOWN, N.J. -- Opnext, Inc. (NASDAQ:OPXT - News), a global leader in the design and manufacturing of optical modules and components, today announced unaudited financial results for the fourth quarter and fullyear ended March31,2008.
Financial Highlights for the Fourth Quarter Ended March 31, 2008:Sales increased $6.3 million, or 9.5%, to $72.7 million from $66.4 million in the quarter ended December 31, 2007, primarily as a result of increased sales of 40Gbps, X2 and SFP data products. Sales of 10Gbps and above products increased $6.1 million, or 11.3%, to $60.1 million, while sales of less than 10Gbps products increased $0.7 million, or 9.3%, to $8.2 million, and industrial and commercial product sales decreased by $0.5 million, or 10.2%, to $4.4 million.Sales increased $7.3 million, or 11.2%, from $65.4 million in the quarter ended March 31, 2007, primarily as a result of increased sales of 40Gbps, X2 and SFP data products partially offset by lower demand for our 300 pin fixed wavelength modules.Sales to Cisco and Alcatel-Lucent represented 45.7% and 14.3% of total sales, respectively, as compared to 37.7% and 19.9% for the quarter ended December 31, 2007, and 38.5% and 20.9% for the quarter ended March 31, 2007.Gross margin was 32.9%, as compared to 32.8% for the quarter ended December 31, 2007 and 33.9% for the quarter ended March 31, 2007. The increase in gross margin from the quarter ended December 31, 2007 primarily reflects the benefits from lower warranty reserve requirements that were partially offset by increased sales of lower margin SFP and 10Gbps multimode fiber data products and the negative effects of foreign currency exchange fluctuations. The decrease in gross margin from the quarter ended March 31, 2007 primarily resulted from increased sales of lower margin SFP and 10Gbps multimode fiber data products and the negative effect of foreign currency exchange fluctuations, partially offset by the benefits from lower stock-based compensation expense.Operating loss, including $1.0 million of stock-based compensation expense, was $0.8 million, or 1.1% of sales, as compared to operating income of $1.8 million, or 2.7% of sales for the quarter ended December 31, 2007 and an operating loss of $1.1 million, or 1.7% of sales, for the quarter ended March 31, 2007. The decrease in operating income from the quarter ended December 31, 2007 primarily resulted from higher R&D and marketing communication expenses, costs incurred to amend previously filed financial statements, non-cash charges related to the disposal of certain obsolete fixed assets and the negative effects of foreign currency exchange fluctuations, partially offset by the improvement in gross margin discussed above and lower stock-based compensation expense. Additionally, operating income for the quarter ended December 31, 2007 included the reversal of performance-based bonus accruals.Net income was $0.9 million, or $0.01 per diluted share, as compared to $4.3 million, or $0.07 per diluted share, for the quarter ended December 31, 2007 and $0.9 million, or $0.02 per diluted share, for the quarter ended March 31, 2007. The decrease in diluted earnings per share from the quarter ended December 31, 2007 primarily resulted from lower operating results as described above and the negative effects of lower interest rates on short-term investments and lower foreign currency exchange gains.Cash and cash equivalents increased by $18.3 million to $221.7 million at March 31, 2008 as compared to $203.4 million at December 31, 2007, as $1.8 million of cash from operations and proceeds from a new $20.1 million short-term yen denominated loan were partially offset by investments in capital expenditures to expand manufacturing capacity and payments on capital equipment lease obligations.
Financial Highlights for the Year Ended March 31, 2008:Sales increased $60.6 million, or 27.2%, to $283.5 million compared to $222.9 million for the year ended March 31, 2007, primarily as a result of increased sales of 40Gbps, X2, 300 pin tunable, SFP data and XFP products, partially offset by lower demand for 300 pin fixed wavelength modules. Sales of 10Gbps and above products increased $56.3 million, or 31.8%, to $233.4 million, while sales of less than 10Gbps products increased $5.1 million, or 19.5%, to $31.3 million.Industrial and commercial product sales increased by $2.4 million, or 14.6%, to $18.8 million and DVD sales, which were discontinued in September 2006, decreased by $3.2 million.Sales to Cisco and Alcatel-Lucent were 40.0% and 20.0% of total sales, respectively, as compared to 37.7% and 20.1% for the prior year.
Gross margin improved to 34.0% from 33.3% in the year ended March 31, 2007 and operating income increased to $9.3 million, or 3.3% of sales, from an operating loss of $2.1 million in the prior year. Net income was $17.0 million, or $0.26 per diluted share, as compared to $0.7 million, or $0.01 per diluted share, for the year ended March 31, 2007.Cash and cash equivalents increased by $21.9 million to $221.7 million for the year ended March 31, 2008 as $11.5 million of cash from operations and proceeds from a new $20.1 million short-term yen denominated loan were partially offset by investments in capital expenditures to expand manufacturing capacity and payments on capital equipment lease obligations.Market Observations and Guidance:Commenting on the Company’s recent performance, Opnext, Inc. President and Chief Executive Officer Harry Bosco said, “Following the bumps in the road encountered in the December quarter, we’re particularly glad to be back on our growth plan, as demonstrated by achieving nearly $73 million in sales for the March quarter. This performance capped a very strong year, as revenues approached $284 million and net income reached $17 million.

LAS VEGAS -- Applied Micro Circuits Corporation (NASDAQ: AMCC), a global leader in embedded Power Architecture™ processing, optical transport and storage solutions, will demonstrate its technology leadership in 10GbE transport technology at Interop from April 27 to May 2 in the Mandalay Bay Convention Center in Las Vegas. AMCC transport components allow system builders to offer the cost-effective, high-performance, high-capacity delivery of enterprise and telecom traffic for both access and data center applications.AMCC’s industry-leading components provide innovative capabilities such as Electronic Dispersion Compensation (EDC), Forward Error Correction (FEC), serializer/deserializer (SerDes), CDR (Clock and Data Recovery) and FRACn. These features enable efficient, high-performance, low-power building blocks for the highly integrated components that AMCC provides to system vendors, OEMs and ODMs worldwide. These devices enable systems to communicate faster and transport higher densities of data traffic with less design complexity and fewer chips, allowing businesses to innovate, create a competitive edge and significantly reduce time-to-market.At booth #458, AMCC will demonstrate its recently introduced and sampling Pemaquid/S19258, a XAUI-to-XFI 10G LAN/WAN/OTN Framer/Mapper/PHY device for 10GbE, 10G Fibre Channel, WIS (OC-192/STM-64) and OTU2 network applications. The Pemaquid S19258 enables cost-effective carrier Ethernet solutions for the Metro WDM transport network.Carrier service providers desire to migrate from traditional SONET/SDH transmission equipment to carrier-grade Ethernet equipment and Ethernet-to-Optical Transport Network (OTN) services. The migration requires cost-effective silicon and Pemaquid is the first physical layer device on the market to enable Ethernet-to-OTN convergence. Prior to the availability of Pemaquid, service providers had to back-end Carrier Ethernet and switch/router platforms with DWDM equipment to enter and exit optical transport networks.The demonstration will show how 10GbE traffic is generated and mapped into either an OTU-2 or SONET/SDH (OC-192/STM-64) 10G serial signal, and transported out over 120km of fiber before being looped back into Pemaquid. Received 10GbE traffic is checked by the company’s Hawthorne evaluation board for error-free transmission and displayed on a GUI. The AMCC booth will also feature its partnership activity with several customers and partners.AMCC will also display Pemaquid with Marvell in booth #1039 at Interop. The device will be connected to Marvell’s Prestera® Switch Platform.In cooperation with the Ethernet Alliance, AMCC will demonstrate the QT2025 and the QT2025-1 XAUI-to-10Gb PHY/EDC devices live at booth #1567. The QT2025-1 supports the 10GBASE-SR/LR/LRM SFP+ optical modules and direct-attach twinax copper cables. The QT2025 supports 10GBASE-KR 10G serial backplane connectivity applications.The QT2025-1/QT2025 devices are highly integrated ICs with EDC for 1GbE or 10GbE, Fibre Channel, LAN, WAN and SAN applications based on XFP, SFP/SFP+ optical transceiver modules and twinax cable. They are ideal for high port density 10G datacom Ethernet switches, NICs, and telecom line card applications. The QT2025 enables the upgrade of existing backplanes to 1Gbps or 10Gbps (10GBASE-KR) data rates.In a separate release:LAS VEGAS -- Applied Micro Circuits Corporation (NASDAQ: AMCC), a global leader in optical transport, embedded Power Architecture™ processing, and storage solutions today announced successful interoperability testing of the QT2025 physical layer (PHY) IC family at the University of New Hampshire’s Interoperability Lab (UNH-IOL).
