He was lucky enought to get through Step 2 with Ascend without anyone noticing and sailed on through to Step 3.
However, with Zhone, the question mark actually requires that he have a plan. Creative financing and funny money aren't going to cut it in this economy. Notel's AccessNode product line are not modems. They require a little more than just turning them off and back on to fix them. Nortel's products are the only thing bringing in revenue right now.
