re: LuxN: New Customer, New Product
Astral Point's "contract" with TWT wasn't so much a contract as an agreement to purchase, which means nothing. Same with their so-called contract with ATG. If these deals had any true value, do you think Astral Point would be laying off?

As has been pointed out previously, TWT has a stake in AP and ATG has a common investor. Not unusual, but until a truly unbiased player puts real money down, AP is just another unproven metro play among the umpteen others competing in this space.

If these were real deals, I doubt you'd have seen AP announcing layoffs last week.

um..... you mean unlike Sycamore, Nortel, Cisco, Lucent, JDSU, Redback, etc, and so on?

Has anyone been immune to layoffs, regardless of size, contracts or established position? Noooooo.

re: LuxN: New Customer, New Product
The press release pretty much covers what they told me last week. I mentioned these two applications in the story. In New York they've deployed the gear for fiber relief and in Columbus they are using it to provide GigE service to customers. I'm not sure what the deal is with the Cisco Cerent stuff. But I will look into it.

re: LuxN: New Customer, New Product
Did you see the new LuxN release? Anything different than what they said to you?

re: LuxN: New Customer, New Product
A press release came out today from them detailing more on this deal with Time Warner. Looks like two applications: Fiber Relief and Gigabit Ethernet.

GigE to customers and Fiber Relief within the TWT network. GigE is so-so but the fiber relief is very interesting since TWT also runs Cisco 15454 boxes in the metro.

Could the LuxN boxes be hooked up to the Cisco/Cerent boxes in New York and Columbus, OH where LuxN said they are deployed?

Certainly, no one is immune, but the dynamics of public/established companies laying off are much different than when startups start doing it.

When you are built on VC money, you plan on a certain "burn rate" that is sustainable until money starts rolling in. When layoffs happen, it's usually because that money ain't rolling in on schedule, if at all (or grossly inept management).

$100M from TWT? I think that kind of dough in the pipeline would have sustained those jobs - if it were imminent.

Please LuxN!

You can read right through your message postings... you could at least make it a little less obvious - a little more graceful - some tact. You just make yourself look bad with that type of self-praise...
