Extreme Networks cutting 13% of workforce
The plan "provides for a reduction in the current number of employee positions at the Company by approximately 13%," according to the 8-K. Extreme's headcount was about 690 employees at the end of its fiscal first quarter, which ended Sept. 30, 2012.The cost reduction plan calls for eliminating several management staff positions, consolidating operations in California and North Carolina to reduce real estate costs, and integrating data center and alliances sales teams under a single sales structure, according to the 8-K.Extreme anticipates completing its restructuring by Sept. 30. The company expects to incur charges of $5.5 million to $7.0 million in its second quarter for non-recurring employee-related termination benefits, including severance payments and continuation of medical insurance benefits.For its second quarter, which the company will report later this month, Extreme warned that revenues will come in under previously stated guidance -- $75 million to $77 million vs. $78 million to $85 million. The shortfall is due to delays in customer expenditures in the U.S. and in the Europe/Middle East/Africa regions.Net income, excluding charges and other expenses, is expected to be in a range of $2.5 million to $3.0 million, which is below the low-end of the range of previously provided guidance primarily due to lower than expected revenue.Extreme laid off 110 people, or 16% of its workforce, 18 months ago. The company has been struggling to grow, with market share remaining flat at 1.3% of the $20 billion Ethernet switch market in 2010 and 2011, according to Dell'Oro.
Cisco uses LISP to articulate programmability
The idea behind the routing locator and identifier separation in an IP address is that it allows LISP-enabled edge routers to aggregate the location information, so less of it needs to be stored in the core routers.This makes LISP beneficial for the following applications, proponents say: multihoming; mobility; improved scalability; customer-managed VPN provisioning; and network virtualization, among others. For network virtualization in particular, LISP allows mobile endpoints, for example, to keep their identification while changing locations. The separated IP address becomes a virtual Layer 3 overlay abstracted from the physical network topology.Essentially, you do the same thing with an IP address that you do with a cell number when you roam to a different network or change providers - even though your location changes, your number stays the same. With this, a user can create a VPN over the top of two different service provider networks, Cisco officials say, and allow devices to more seamlessly roam between Wi-Fi and 3G networks.NJEDge.Net, is a non-profit technology consortium of academic and research institutions in New Jersey, is using LISP as a virtual network overlay between different ISPs in a multi-homing arrangement.Many of the NJEDge.Net's members were procuring multiple broadband services from ISPs for business continuity reasons. But due to the challenges of balancing network traffic between ISPs using BGP, members of the consortium were often buying more bandwidth than they needed."They couldn't use the second link that they brought up; they had an 80:20 balance of traffic," says Jim Stankiewicz, director of Internet engineering for NJEDge.Net. "They were struggling with it."NJEDge.Net implemented LISP to move applications, network resources or devices between network providers without having them lose connectivity. LISP enabled users to remain connected even when workloads were balanced between their ISPs.NJEDge.Net is also assessing LISP to address disaster recovery needs. LISP provides the ability for customers to move data center resources, such as virtual machines, between data centers while maintaining connectivity.
