re: Amber Networks Cuts Staff Eagle is mostly right. Why haven't they had any sales? Share with us your insight and wisdom (or lack there of).

re: Amber Networks Cuts Staff I was at Amber for a while and I hated it there. Development Engineering micro manages everything from the top to the bottom. There is no opportunity to be creative and they do not want to hear your opinion. There is a lot of preference and politics and only opportunity within the company for certain "types" of people. I found it impossible to stay motivated there. The funny thing is that I didn't have to look to find a better job .. it found me! Yes I'm bitter. No, I was not laid off.

Oh yea .. the product: Very good SW set, but the box is too small. I think the company missed it's market opportunity with the current product and will have to have a much larger box (with more flexibility and interfaces) if they want to do well when the industry turns around. I hope I'm wrong and they can pull it off!

The company: They do have some good developers. They need good managers and a better work environment.

re: Amber Networks Cuts Staff See, good products.. not long for acceptance in the market place. Every company has growing pains and i'm sure Amber is no different.

Hell Cisco has problems to, bigger debt, accoounting for sales..... better leave that alone for now... key here they are not the big bad wolfe.

re: Amber Networks Cuts Staff litepipe,

You are right about one thing, "little humor." Or maybe very little humor would be more accurate.

If you know of any companies that likely will buy Amber routers, you better call the sales reps that work there, cause they sure don't know of any.

I agree that fault tollerance is important, so are interfaces and features that help the box's ROI, that means "Return on Investment." Until there are more interfaces and enhanced features, the limited ROI will prevent Amber from getting bought in my opinion based on their web site.

Other will follow, and pass Amber by after selling only a few boxes.

re: Amber Networks Cuts Staff litepipe,

Cisco is the big bad wolf when they cut their price per port in half and beat everyone in the edge router space. Also, with the slow down, they have huge inventories and price will come down even more. On top of that, they just released a more dense card for their 7206 and now take away Amber's density benefits.

litepipe, stick to what you know best, and thats listening to your wife (per your own posting).

re: Amber Networks Cuts Staff Amber spread the word about the Time Warner trail in SuperComm.

Did you already get information from Time Warner Engineering about the result of the testing?

re: Amber Networks Cuts Staff Oh, with your bondless knowldge eagle you must be one rich guy, predicting the sales and future of the router market companis and all.

Yes cisco cut their prices, good move on their part but they still face internal problems from the rockjet growth they had.

As far as Ambers RIO, byte me. I like their product.. it is a good product and it's not just me. Are there better, yes in some features but over all I like Ambers product, I like others as well.

I'm not saying Amber is the best but they are good at what they do. Unlike your self that cxan not see any good in Amber. You state "facts" that are opinions at best. Fine, you don't like their product, no problem here. But they aren't the big bad boys (or girls) you try to paint them as.

Get real or at least honest in you posts. Yes you bring up some good points. very few but a few. Over all you are full of BS

Boy can I relate. I am at a startup that mirrors these disfunctional selfish and childish traits. Too bad that we still have to deal with the assholes both in and out of work. Such is life. Anyone out there working in a startup that has a good work environment and a viable product? Consider yourself very lucky. Good luck to anyone who takes a risk with startup ventures. Especially in these market conditions.

re: Amber Networks Cuts Staff "As far as the sale of a box, Tandon had the same problem with their fault tollerent nachines at first (i was there), "

You were there? I doubt it. Don't know the name of the company and can't spell. Tandon made disk drives, Tandem (now part of Compaq) makes fault "tollerant" machines.
