re: GIG-BE Winners Named The GIG-BE looks not so innovative without Corvis involved.

Oh absolutely! For all the embracing of new technology that the RFP appeared to indicate, SAIC decided to go with whitebread. This is very disappointing for the future of optical networking.

re: GIG-BE Winners Named Sycamore, whose shares rose as much as 27 percent, won the contract for optical digital crossconnects, the Web site reported, citing a vendor involved in the bidding and a federal equipment consultant. Sycamore officials declined to comment or even confirm they are bidding for any of the work.

Cisco and Juniper could not be reached to comment, while Ciena said no contract has been awarded and it is still in the running for the optical transport portion of the contract

A spokesman for the Pentagon and the agency involved did not return repeated phone calls.



All very confusing.

re: GIG-BE Winners Named Who cares????

Corvis lost. Deal with it.

re: GIG-BE Winners Named The source also appears to be wrong on at least one count. The source said vendors were called last night, but Ciena spokespeople said they were "still in the running" for transort, not that they'd won or that they couldn't comment because of the NDA.

re: GIG-BE Winners Named How can they have won and even THEY don't know it? They said they're "still in the running."

re: GIG-BE Winners Named The terms of the Gig-BE pretty much excluded foreign companies by assessing a tax on their proposals. I'm not sure anyone other than Cisco and Lucent had a chance on the MSPP portion.
Also Phil, I hope that you aren't speculating on Corvis stock those SEC boys are known to have little sense of humor.

re: GIG-BE Winners Named dave,

i am hearing (from industry sources) that ciena priced OTS aggressively, based on them thinking they would win ODXC. looks like Sycamore is the big winner here, based on expectations

re: GIG-BE Winners Named No surprise here given that they've basically wiped out there product houses to barebones and have no long term product strategy. All this to save the jobs of incompetent executives who can't decide if they want products or services. In the end they'll have neither and will be left with a handful of nincompoops...
