re: Lucent Buys Softswitch Vendor Telica so how much would a typical engr stand to from gain
from this deal? is 15-25K shr/engr the usual std in
these type of cos ? and multiply that by the LU
price of $3.25 directly ?


Depends on how the deal is structured. The workerbees usually get shafted in such acquisitions.

Wonder where and how Pattie will pay herself and the other essential execs their bonuses after this deal goes through? I thought they were running on fumes at this time.

My money's on Mehdi Ghasem - the poor guy's been Lucentified the hard way once before. And he's VeeP of Strategic Planning & Business Development, something Lucent doesn't have or need.

Why, do you work for Telica? If yes, update your resume and network like crazy! You need a plan B like right now before the LuLifers move in and manage you to death!

re: Lucent Buys Softswitch Vendor Telica Lucent bought a solid company with solid CLASS 4, PRI Offload and VoIP credential but unfortunately they have not found a way to rid themselves of the CLASS 5 gremlins. The Plexus has been removed from a few networks already and has been booted out of a few labs for failing to deliver on their CLASS 5 claims.

re: Lucent Buys Softswitch Vendor Telica Lucent could not build a voip product? Actually, they had lots of them, and ended up having the products compete and then systematically killed off each of them How is it that this company cannot innovate in new categories where it had core competance... and continues to kill off its acquisitions?

Best of luck to the Telica guys though. After the bonus checks clear, when you have some customer complaints and NJ sends in 'help', that is when you should bolt.

re: Lucent Buys Softswitch Vendor Telica If you can't manage or integrate. The track record for Lucent and its acquisitions, speaks volumes. The big question is, what have they learned from past mistakes and what will they do differently this time. I'd like to give them the benefit of the doubt, but then again, what is O'Shea and other Pat's cronies still doing there...

re: Lucent Buys Softswitch Vendor Telica This is the typical scenario's from Lucent:

After acquiring Telica, Lucent will "integrate" the Telica softswitch with its own (xl) softswitches. The big "fights" will start between different Lucent SS R&D groups the winner is.... None!!!

The result is a crapy-softswicth that will stop from existing after maximum one year!!

I think this deal is best news from Lucent to its competition: Nortel, Siemens, Sonus etc...

re: Lucent Buys Softswitch Vendor Telica What does this mean to Sonus? Acquisition? Whom?
