Roshnee, Inara, now Cratos?

re: Cratos Networks Tips Its Hand Ladies and Gentlemn,

without making ethical/personal judgements surrounding any personalities invovled in the Cratos venture, one
can easily come to the conclusion that only 8 million dollars + only 70 staff + only 1 year of development is hardly enoguh resource/time allocation to build anything in the Cisco 15454/RedBack Smart-Edge/Cienna Core-Director category, nevermind combining those features into one box. The 'official' data disclosed is
easily enough information to come to the conclusion that they are either developing something small, they have completely misjudged the engineering effort requried in order to complete such a product, or they are lying.

re: Cratos Networks Tips Its Hand Does anyone know Sanjeev's involvement (or lack there of) in Redback's $4.3B acquisition of Siara Systems?

Sanjeev left Fiberlane before the Fiberlane -> Cerent/Siara split. He never worked for Siara, and any connection he might have to their product is tenuous, obscure, or nonexistant (pick any two).

re: Cratos Networks Tips Its Hand Hey Ethical Citizen...how many sloptions did Sanjeev give you to write that brown nose piece about Cratos...OR am I writing to the man himself?

re: Cratos Networks Tips Its Hand I worked at Fiberlane and left it before Sanjeev & Co left Fiberlane. The folks here who are posting emails are boneheads and don't know sqat about Sanjeev or Fiberlane. Sanjeev came up with the product idea & architecture of the box which was done at Siara and Siara folks took credit for all his work because he had left.

Knowing Sanjeev from his Fiberlane days, he is a super sharp cookie and I would believe that he has executed at light speeds at Cratos to have a prototype of his product. The word in the Fiberlane circle is that he is building a terabit optical transport system.

People are always jealous of his capabilities because of his exceptional talents and abilities.

Wake up and smell the coffee, boneheads!

re: Cratos Networks Tips Its Hand My god, what a bunch of miserable people! Certainly Sanjeev is not without contraversy; his work at Fiberlane may have been focussed on what Siara became, but what he did and what Siara did are totally independant. On the other hand, I have to wonder how much poetic license was taken by the Lightreading...

The real issue is what has Cratos done and will they succeed? Any jackass who has been involved in a startup knows that there are two cornerstones to success. A team of people and the ability to execute a plan.

At the surface Cratos seems to have built a reasonable team and if their claims of integration are true, then they seem to have executed their plan. Do I know if Cratos will succeed? No. But, nothing I've seen tell's me that they won't. There are no obvious signs of a problem.

By the way, if you wan't to talk about bullshit history, let's talk about the Cyras "bad boys of Fiberlane", or the number of people who claim to be Fiberlane founders. On second thought, don't get me started on that one...

search for the word "comstellar" in the article. comstellar is out of business.

re: Cratos Networks Tips Its Hand HEY.

i NEVER maligned the founder. But the product is still a freaking coffee machine until he has customers.

And to get back to the original thread, there are WAY TO MANY vendors in this space.

Even if Newarikar could walk on water, he doesn't have a snowball's chance in hell of finding customers with the market density in this arena.
