re: Mahi Secrets Surface If Mahi is counting on PMC chips to build their box, I wish them good luck - and they will need a lot of it. PMC has OK solutions for Framers and Cross Connects, but as far as routing, MPLS, etc., I don't know what they can offer for a carrier class solution. Also, in terms of the cost of the system, they will be at a severe disadvantage.

re: Mahi Secrets Surface OK, let's just sit back and see if they can deliver on the hype. I guess we haven't learned our lessons from the days when all these godboxes said they could "do it all" and in reality they can't even deliver a working product. I'm from Missouri, so show me first before I get all excited about a box that can do it all!

re: Mahi Secrets Surface Not to mention power and size. The chipsets take up so much board size and power that it is not even funny

re: Mahi Secrets Surface A PMC sales rep told me that Equipe and Lucent's Oz/MSC25K project both use the TT1....maybe that's why those switches are so damn big ?

re: Mahi Secrets Surface What is the scalablitliy with this ASIC based architecture?

What are the differentiators with the "bleeding edge" techology?

re: Mahi Secrets Surface Smart thing to use off-the-shelf technology. "Can do all" is a sure recipe for failure. Sometime vendor has a better chance of succeeding inspite of initial stuggle (What is a small piece for customer, is life and death for the vendor).

BTW, 2000 was the year of "off-the-shelf public relationship". Hopefully, this "off-the-shelf" is post-bubble.

re: Mahi Secrets Surface I had heard that Mahi lost several of their lead architecture/ASIC people. Maybe the choice of using PMC chips was the only way to product.

re: Mahi Secrets Surface If you known something about PMC's switch fabric and the kind of boxes Mahi is trying to build, you know that they dont go together. I am not saying that PCM's or Mahi's products good or bad but they do not suit each other - you would figure this out very easily if you have some technical knowledge in this space:-)

re: Mahi Secrets Surface ALL IN ONE GOD BOX?
so what, every vendor in this industry has
considered or attempted to put all services in one box. History has shown this has repeatedly failed for one reason or another.

sow what, every system vendor does this to save time.

Where is the uniqueness or innovation in
Mahi's approach???? I see no secret here.

re: Mahi Secrets Surface It is also THE ONLY, working 320 Gb/s switch fabric in its size/performance???????
