Singh Signs Off

9:00 AM -- One of the most high profile and likable telecom equipment market analysts, Inder Singh, is heading for pastures new now that his current employer, Prudential Equity Group LLC , has decided to exit the equities research business.

Singh -- a member of the elite analyst set that doesn't feel the need to preface earnings calls questions with a "great quarter, guys!" platitude -- has been a regular in the pages of Light Reading since early 2004, covering industry giants such as Alcatel-Lucent (NYSE: ALU), Cisco Systems Inc. (Nasdaq: CSCO), Ericsson AB (Nasdaq: ERIC), Juniper Networks Inc. (NYSE: JNPR), Motorola Inc. (NYSE: MOT), and Nortel Networks Ltd. .

Singh only recently held an investor conference call dedicated to a subject dear to Light Reading -- Nortel's PBT strategy. (See Nortel Says 40-Gbit PBT Coming Soon.)

We trust Singh will find a new research home soon.
