re: Lucent Clarifies Product Strategy I think they are just keeping Navis around as it provides some general management of their boxes. They might be better to offer a MIB browser. The last time I saw the guts of this beast there wasn't much there. I can't say it's a network or element management strategy. I think it's just something they have that works a little bit for the H/W they can sell.

re: Lucent Clarifies Product Strategy They should probably turn to negative marketing instead of keeping a positive outlook. That's how to keep your job, yeah right!

re: Lucent Clarifies Product Strategy For a company that is so optimistic about all of their products' relative market position, they sure are putting out crappy results.

re: Lucent Clarifies Product Strategy Although I loath the execs in Jersey, I like the fact that they did dump the stuff that deserves it:
* Wavestar crossconnects are crap compared to Alcatel
* their softswitch was such a piece of crap that a veteran personal hygene marketeer would not be able to sell that sucker to a blind rubberducky on crack

Good to see the Ascend/Cascade/Springtide stuff made it (this far). The Internet call diversion application Russo mentions has been solved for a long time with the excellent Ascend (Stratus) ICD solution (afaik Telefonica, Deutsche Telecom, WorldCom and BT).

Any carrier who had the "pleasure" of implementing LU's various feable attempts at element managers fully understands why Russo & friends decided to keep Navis. If you have circuit/optical management tools customers want to shoot you for selling to them then why not just take the successful stuff from the data side and do the ol' "add some and relable end-to-end solution" trick. Not gonna work but at least the Navis people get to keep their job for a while.

The Psax melts when you whisper MPLS near it so I have no idea how they think they will add MPLS to a box that's already running extremely low on cycles & juice. Since the B-STDX is ominously missing from Russo's data products, maybe they will relable it to become the almighty Psax box that sports MPLS. And they would probably think we would fall for it. Ha!

Happy hunting,

re: Lucent Clarifies Product Strategy Product set seem a lot like Marconi. No mention of the TMX so maybe it is on the block? For a company so big in voice the convergence plans aren't very clear. Seems they have punted on IP completely...

re: Lucent Clarifies Product Strategy What about the Anymedia products?

re: Lucent Clarifies Product Strategy From what I can see, this is all still the same, where are the 10k cuts going to come from if no major product cut has occurred. I thought LUcent had to "cut deep" this time. Still the same company......

re: Lucent Clarifies Product Strategy > 10,000 job cuts is not "cutting deep"???? What is?

Fhunton has a very good point - they announced 10,000 cuts, but didn't cancel any products! Where are the cuts coming from??????

re: Lucent Clarifies Product Strategy SemiConduct Guy,

I mean in terms of product portfolio, lucent is cutting almost 1/5th of workforce but still maintaining same products, from what i've been reading over the last few weeks was that there were going to be "deep cuts" in product portfolio, maybe I picked it up worng, but was expecting different type of announcements...Lucent could end up in situation where supporting alot of products, not enough staff and not enough money, why not do one or two things right instead of doing ten things crap......
