Jasmine Networks: Disconnected

Jasmine Networks, one of many startups in the crowded metro optical switching market, has officially closed its doors, say sources. The company has been struggling to stay afloat for almost a year and just yesterday bid the last of its employees good-bye.

Calls placed to David Robert, chief operating office and acting CEO, and to David Frazee, vice president of legal affairs and corporate secretary, were met with messages saying that their phone lines had been disconnected. While the company’s Website is still up, its corporate phone number only reaches voice mail.

According to a source close to the company, the remaining 50 employees in the company’s San Jose, Calif., office were told yesterday that the company would be closing. Their last official day was yesterday. The source also says that employees were given little to no severance. Rumors had been circulating since October that Jasmine’s days were numbered (see Rumors Rampant as Startup Woes Mount).

In March, Light Reading reported that the company had slashed its workforce by roughly 25 percent, leaving about 180 employees (see Is the Bloom off Jasmine?). It had also closed its Richardson, Texas, facility and sent Venkata V. Chalam, vice president of engineering, and Ravi Dattatreya, chief executive officer, packing.

Sources say that Jasmine’s demise results from a deal gone bad with Nortel Networks Corp. (NYSE/Toronto: NT). Back in the summer of 2000, Nortel had agreed to resell the Jasmine product. So Jasmine altered its product focus and concentrated on building an OC48/OC192 multiplexer to fit into the optical transport product portfolio Nortel had acquired from Qtera. A year later, when Jasmine finally got its product to market, Nortel found itself in deep financial trouble and cut the deal.

Without any other customers on board to take up the slack, the company hasn’t generated any revenue or been able to raise new funding.

re: Jasmine Networks: Disconnected Whew...!All of the posts about Innovance, Jasmine, Ceyba and others have brought out all the experts. I had no idea there were so many brilliant minds left wasting away, buried in labs somewhere out there in this vast optical wastland, as companies throughout the optical industry stagger and fall to their collective deaths. Maybe you people shold stop bitching about the faults of others and make sure the companies you're with survive this mess.

re: Jasmine Networks: Disconnected Just because you still have a phone, does not mean you are still with the company. Does Tony pick up the phone, or does voicemail pick up? Unless you can verify Tony is physically present, keeping a voicemail extension is not a reliable indicator.

I have no idea, one way or the other, about what is happening at Procket... but:

Both Tony and Procket have an incentive to continue to appear to be affiliated with each other (at least until Tony lands somewhere else that would cause a conflict of interest). Both benefit (valuation-wise, at least) from a continued relationship. I've seen these "permanent unpaid leave of absence" things with senior "prestige" technical folks several times before.

re: Jasmine Networks: Disconnected Harvey:

Your commnetary is still banal and worthless, everytime I see your name it is followed by clueless BS that sounds like you missed your chance to engineer something that would make a difference to anyone but your left hand.

As a point, Lucent did not spend "$100b on junky companies", in the end their total spend on companies whose original IP path was not followed
has not exceeded $25b directly or an additional $15b through their investment arm.

Since you don't have a clue about the actual content you are spouting about, I'll make my point. Chromatis cost $4.5B but the IP from that (now folded) division crops up frequently in their newer endeavors. In fact, some of this IP clearly went to Agere as well.

I suggest you get some fresh batteries for your Gameboy color and veg back out.

re: Jasmine Networks: Disconnected Harvey,

If you had stopped after two paragraphs and my interpretation of your "grammar" is correct than this would have been your 1st post where I am in agreement.

Jasmine failed for a few simple reasons:
1) They did a poor job of implementing a simple OC-48 to OC-192 mux for Nortel.

2) They really did not have a new product more of a try to improve on Cerent beyond what market really needed.

re: Jasmine Networks: Disconnected In time, history will show that Wu Fu and others were more lucky than good. The stock market bubble of 1999-2000 caused fear of not having technology for many large companies and this many of them bought startups out of nothing more than fear. The chances of this phenomena repeating itself anytime in this lifetime are highly unlike now that the bubble has burst. Eventually many of these 'geniuses' will fall off the radar..the best we can hope for is that they become delusional in thinking that they can do it again and miserably fail at it. There are signs of this slowly appearing.

re: Jasmine Networks: Disconnected but maybe it's time for a new model for startups.

OLD MODEL
brilliant person gets brilliant idea
develops business plan full of market speculation
runs to VCs to start company
builds product no one wants

NEW MODEL (?)
brilliant person gets brilliant idea
develops technology plan and roadmap
runs to potential customers to see if they'll buy it
If "yes" develops business plan, runs to VCs, starts company
If "no" goes back to work at Burger King (or as in my case, hanging sheetrock)

re: Jasmine Networks: Disconnected Can someone help me understand why optimight was so highly regarded by some?

I understand they did away with raman amps, but they gave up quite a bit in return. Their total system capacity was greatly lowered because of the full-spectrum technology. I believe they also needed additional line compensation every few hundred km. Between the line compensation and having a fiber rollover much earlier than other competitors, I'd think they'd have a hard time offering any savings to a carrier.

re: Jasmine Networks: Disconnected Wufu may not know much optics. The
"optics" people know even less about
telecom networks than Wufu's optics.

Actually, telecom does not need much optics anyway. Optics people should do
components.

Optimight is one of rare startups that has
something unique. Their mistake was that
the founder was too gready and was trying to time the market. They should have taken $80M at Jan-April 2001.

Cinta, another Wufu's optical company, is going to die soon. The reason is Wufu doesn't know ANY optics. If he knew optics, Cinta and OptiMight had not chance to get funding for start up. Actually,I went to Cinta and OptiMight for interview when they just started up. After talked with their funders for their vision, I believed they would fail.

re: Jasmine Networks: Disconnected I've been seeing a lot of traffic on the "voluntary" pay cut phenom. Does anyone have any insight on what is being offered in return, if anything, for people who volunteer?

Extra options? A bigger cube? Personal bathroom? Corporate pat on the back?

Given the general contraction of the job market it's not surprising that companies are cutting pay, the market isn't what it was a year or so ago and salaries should reflect that. I'm just surprised that someone would volunteer for a pay cut without getting something in return.

re: Jasmine Networks: Disconnected Go Patriots!!!!

You are right and it's neither cold nor cruel. Employees know they are taking a big risk when working for a start-up. Since when does anyone get something for nothing??

Many employees have this obsurd notion that they will be millionaires over night... I don't know how many times I've watched co-workers count money that they don't have. It's a hard fall for many.
BigHead 12/4/2012 | 10:59:23 PM
re: Jasmine Networks: Disconnected I have not received a confirmation regarding
pay cuts at Ceyba. However, do note that
companies like Ceyba and Innovance recruited
majority of their staff with extremely generous
packages back in the days when the competition for talents was still fierce. It is only fitting
that their salaries are being adjusted to
reflect today's market climate. I see it as strictly a supply/demand issue.


optigirl 12/4/2012 | 10:59:23 PM
re: Jasmine Networks: Disconnected Let's be serious here...this is a buyer's market and anyone who is not willing to play ball will get the gate in favor of someone willing to work for less. Cold and cruel? Maybe. But, this is a reflection of the market and the inverse of having to pay excessive salaries abd options in order to find talent. Employees have no leverage in times like these.

By the way, to all the Massachusetts folks:

Go Patriots!!!!!

Life is good today.

lite guide 12/4/2012 | 10:59:23 PM
re: Jasmine Networks: Disconnected Additional stock options in return...number of options is dependent on pay cut percentage. Clearly the options are watered down.

For many employees this is not enough. Times are bad and most people are trying to hold onto as much cash as possible. It may be wiser to keep a big salary and save for what's to come then to take a cut for some extra options. Anyone who works for a start-up has already received a generous (?) option package as part of their initial offer.
lite guide 12/4/2012 | 10:59:25 PM
re: Jasmine Networks: Disconnected Yes, it makes to sense to assume that VCs are concerned with high burn rates and would require companies to lower costs before providing additional funding.

My understanding is that Innovance Networks has had a hiring freeze for several months and that they laid off 25 out of 335 (I've noticed some discrepancy in past postings). Rumor has it that employees within Ceyba were forced to take 25% pay cuts. I don't know whether or not this it true, however I do know that Innovance employees have been asked to take voluntary pay cuts ranging anywhere from 5% to 30% with the cuts remaining in effect until 2003.

Although these cuts have been termed "voluntary", management is also re-evaluating current salaries and making adustments as needed. My guess is that ALL Innovance Employees will be taking pay cuts one way or another.

Likewise, another lay-off or tune-up, as CEO Peter Alan termed it, is not far off. And as is the new trend, expect to hear an announcement of new funding sometime soon.

In the current market, companies will do whatever necessary to stay afloat. Whether or not Innovance will survive remains to be seen.
old_man_harold 12/4/2012 | 10:59:25 PM
re: Jasmine Networks: Disconnected A few days have past since the initial post speculating pay cuts at Ceyba. I would have expected some concrete reation and denial from Ceyba.

This leads me to believe that there is some truth to the rumor.
skylark 12/4/2012 | 10:59:25 PM
re: Jasmine Networks: Disconnected The Jasmine box designed for Qtera/Nortel never worked right anyway. When told they had problems, the project managers were more interested in having meetings to discuss the problems rather than work in the lab to get things done.

JNI was also too busy trying to shove the product down their throats and get approvals to get the product "to market" as the article says.

NT did not pull out due to "financial troubles" but due to the fact that any product they DID have was over a year late in delivery and when it got there it didn't work right.

It is understood that some of the engineers worked very hard on this project, but as one post said, "too little talent."

Some executives were more interested in their expesive dinners in San Jose than the task at hand. That's bad for business, and comes back to get you in the end. The good life does not last forever.

re: Jasmine Networks: Disconnected These guys had too big egos, too little talent. As for many companies who were misled by the boom to believe they deserved big rewards, it is good that they are gone. In other companies, some people did get rich by sheer luck/help of the times, and thought they were superhuman.
I hope by now everybody has learned his/her lesson, and we remember the lessons when things go back to normal.
Physical_Layer 12/4/2012 | 10:59:27 PM
re: Jasmine Networks: Disconnected Regarding layoffs and pay cuts at either Ceyba or Innovance - I don't know if they are true or not, but I will suggest that if parts of it are true, I would not be surprised if the VCs backing the companies made new investments on the condition of things such as a) hiring freeze, b) limited layoffs, c) pay cuts or d) some combination of the first three.
erwin 12/4/2012 | 10:59:28 PM
re: Jasmine Networks: Disconnected I agree with the previous post that Jasmine's demise was on the cards despite the fall-through of the deal with Qtera/Nortel.

Firstly, several of the founding members of Jasmine were part of the small group of ASIC engineers which spawned Fiberlane, which morphed into Cerent. Several indeed did leave, primarily due to egos way bigger than capabilities, and also because of design ambitions that went too far versus the realities of bringing a product to market timed to a market window. Since then, these people have reappeared at Jasmine, Cyras, and Cratos Networks, to name a few companies. I have personally talked to 4 ASIC architects who claimed to "have founded Cerent".

Secondly, any semi-experienced CEO would have enough brains to not blow the whole funding wad (I believe in the $60M range) on a single customer requirement. Also, for any who are aware of the Jasmine product, it is nothing more than a simple IO shelf for the Qtera system, and nobody in their right mind would say that you could build an entire business around this product.

Lastly, they hired supposed "marketing gurus" like Mouli Ramani, ex-Nortel, to head marketing, when in fact he was nothing more than a guy who could talk real impressively about the "optical explosion", but in fact was just a systems engineer at Nortel 3 years before having been made a Vice-President, and had the corresponding industry "experience".

Just one more example of how anybody who could spell optical in 1999-2000 could raise money.
mc_jaded 12/4/2012 | 10:59:28 PM

re: Jasmine Networks: Disconnected ItGÇÖs been a long gurney for all the jasmine employees. Jasmine had a solid product developed for Nortel. Nortel played games with jasmine and at the end they did received the punishment (~6 $ a shares). We spend many many hours on that box and it is not a promise we did delivered with high margins. However, jasmine has very poor marketing team.

Venkata V. Chalam, vice president of engineering was good for nothing and he did destroy the company way back good saves the next startup in his plate.

HarveyMudd 12/4/2012 | 10:59:30 PM
re: Jasmine Networks: Disconnected It should be pointed out Jasmine raked over 90 million products. Jasmine played all kind of tricks but it has no solid product ideas. Now the money is gone so are the management employees.

There are many companies like Jasmine and their demise ois sure as soon as the funding is gone.

Please note that Lucent had funded about 28 companies and had invested millions of dollars, quite a few of them optical companies.

Nortel and Lucent have lost billions of dollars in the acquisition game. For example, Lucent acquired Kenan for about $1.50 Billion and sold it for about $300 million. Lucent has lost over $100 Billion in acquiring junky companies.

re: Jasmine Networks: Disconnected This was already discussed in another thread.
Yes there was a small layoff at Innovance,
roughly 25 people out of 350. People here
had mixed perceptions on whether the layoff
indicated financial trouble, or just an
opportunity to remove redundant/unneeded
functions to conserve cash.

Haven't heard about layoffs or salary cuts
at Ceyba. On the same token haven't heard
much about what they are developing either.
The story changed from Soliton to 40G to
10G solutions.

HarveyMudd 12/4/2012 | 10:59:34 PM
re: Jasmine Networks: Disconnected Regardless of the Deal with Nortel, the death of Jasmine was very certain from the very beginning. It did nit have any new product that had universal appeal. Its management did not have much business experience. It got funding at a time when the simple utterance of the optical could bring millions of dollars.

Except for a few optical companies, most of them would perish as there is no demand for their products.

re: Jasmine Networks: Disconnected Yes, they are done. See below


Dear Fellow Optimighters,

It has been a challenging journey for Optimight . We have all worked so
hard and hoped to see the company going all the way to its IPO. However,
the recent World Trade Center tragedy has made the slow down in the economy
even worse. Unfortunately it came at the time when we needed further
financing from our investors. As you all know Optimight was at the 3rd
stage where we had our product and needed a lot more cash to continue our
operation. Our customers are also in a very difficult financial situation
in making buying decisions due to cash constraints. I have searched for
solutions. Sadly, we have failed to raise the huge financial investment
needed to save the company.

I want to thank you all for your outstanding efforts in making our terrific
product. I am truly proud all of you and believe in our technology and have
great confidence in our product. We achieved Worldcom's field trial and
entered ATT's Q13 process. Still, we have lost our company. And you, our
dear Optimighters, we recognize your contributions, and urge you not to lose
confidence in yourself.

The job market is very soft. My son and brother have also lost their jobs.
Let us, the Optimighters, help and support each other, and our families
under these circumstances. I would also encourage that everyone maintains
contact with your managers.

It is hard to say farewell. We want to respect all the business decisions
that our Board has made. We are certain that the Board has done its very
best to protect the company's best interests and the huge investment they
have all already made (over $60Millions). We lost our child "Optimight", but
let us not lose our trust in people. Keep our confidence, our values and our
hopes.

Sincerely,



Wu-Fu Chen

fundamental_guy 12/4/2012 | 10:59:37 PM
re: Jasmine Networks: Disconnected The top 10 is for companies that are blowing
smoke up the old exit passage. What LR typically
falls a trap to is this smoke.

The folks who use the KISS (Keep It Simple

Also, most of the carrier deals that are made

around hype.

If LR puts a company on the top 10 I usually
attribute it to the fact that marketing is working
hard in these companies to blow smoke.
Uusally marketing works hard when engineering
does not have it together.

Jasmine stank right from the beginning.
Especially when the ideas were around machoness
of building large ASICs. Some of the folks came
our successfull companies were they thrown out
for their pie-in-the-sky dreams. Usually these
collect around the sink hole.
