re: Lucent to Cut Headcount, Products I certainly hope the [telecom] elevator is near the bottom floor.

I don't know how the GBX is doing these days. My guess is that this is one of the few success stories outside of the transport business. Sales have tapered off, to be sure, but if it is still bringing revenue in, I doubt it will be cancelled.

re: Lucent to Cut Headcount, Products Same old story- aim high...shoot low. Before its over, LU will be a 100% 5E services & maintenance company.

re: Lucent to Cut Headcount, Products The TMX can't be long for this world ... but I can't believe they would EOL the GX 550. Talk about raw stupidity ....

re: Lucent to Cut Headcount, Products The TMX880 seems to have a life of it's own despite "ZERO" revenue or any forecast in revenue
for the next 18-24 mos. The CBX/GX product lines are the only ones making any money in
Westford, MA.

I guess we all know where Ken and Janets political views sway regardless of revenue. I hope
they are held accountable for there very poor decisions on what they did to the CSD products and
people in Westford.

I hope Juniper buys the Westford "Cascade" Data business before LU does any more irreversible
damage.

Get real, Juniper just canned Unisphere's ATM switch, why would they buy someone else's, let alone Lucent's?

re: Lucent to Cut Headcount, Products I certainly hope that Lucent would not mess with Westford too much, I don't know about the Springtide group but the CBX and Gx 550 should be improved on, I heard it's still selling B-STDX 9000's overseas. There are thousands of 9000's and CBX 500's installed thru the US at all major service providers. The TMX 880 sounds too much like a GOD BOX and sales projections are weak to slim in the next 24 months.

But I would not be suprised if Lucent kept the TMX-880(Nexabit product) and cut the successful Cascade products....but then again LU could'nt of written a better plan for it's demise so you never know...

re: Lucent to Cut Headcount, Products I guess you should tell the Juniper folks to get real then...from what I've heard, they'll be at the Westford (CSD) facility next week to explore there options.

Your correct in that Juniper canceled the Unisphere ATM, but when's the last time you saw Juniper have tens of thousands of ATM switches worldwide like the CSD products?

Although my sources could be worng, it makes an interesting case considering LU doesn't have a clue how to run a Data business...and remember the Unisphere Pres came from Cascade.

re: Lucent to Cut Headcount, Products I agree about Juniper possibly looking at the Cascade/Lucent product.
After Lucent bought Ascend and the Cascade ATM product, they had no sucees or idea on how to sell it other than to support the existing users.
Maybe Juniper can do something with it and at the same time buy some customers for their other products.

re: Lucent to Cut Headcount, Products westford,MA: a friend says they are trying to
transfer work as feasible to india by
training a lot of young folks sent for training
stints from their office in bangalore. sometimes
indian nationals here were/are(?) encouraged to
accept posting in b'lore to lead these new teams.

if thats true, would indicate not much new development of these product lines.

could someone either confirm or deny the above?
