re: Nokia Kills Amber Router
it's the first data point on how far the
"non-stop routing" would go for routers.

re: Nokia Kills Amber Router Amber Networks was an East Indian company. The owner(s) of Amber company had trouble with Cadence and Synopsys with respect of sale of other companies. These guys did a true number on Nokia. It was a lot of money to pay $421 million for Amber Networks. Just to impress, the comopany talked a lot of junk about the router, put a lot of articles in the trade journals. Its talks were so outrageos that no company like this existed before. Amber Networks would never have succeded as a company on its. But its owner a"operators" wanted to sell the company as they had done it before many times.

Nokia did conduct a thorough reaseach on Amber Networks. If it did not have internal staff of scientists and engineers to evaluate the company, they could have hired outside scientists and engineers to do a trhorough evaluation.

The company also had hired many engineers from the street so as to swell the number of engineers so that it can receive the highest price. By swelling the number, they also wanted to show that the company has a real and viable product.

The same is true of a company by the name Allegro which Cisco acquired. I think it would too hard for Cisco to advance the router product it acquired from Allegro.

Unfortunately California has become the prime place of deception. The products produced California simply cannot be trusted.

re: Nokia Kills Amber Router I think there is one error in the article. I believe that Nokia announced Elisa in Finland as a customer of the ASR. That was announced customer, so I don't know if it was real or not. I'm sure Nokia didn't upset too many customers with this cancelation.

re: Nokia Kills Amber Router BobbyMax

I just lost the respect I had for you when you mentioned "Amber was a East Indian". The tone was racist 100% and I disapprove it. What you must remember is, the East Indians have contributed immensly to U.S.A. I dont want to name the companies they have made or run, which I am sure you would know.

I think you are a sore loser (probably 40ish )and previously fired by some Indian and you are stereotyped and bigoted fool.

I just want to remind you of the following American run companies which duped millions of your own bretheren

Enron, MCI , Global Crossing, Tyco and a 100 others.

Think clearly and think positively and make a resolution on this great day of M.L.K and I promise you Indians are coming very soon to a town near you to make another Optical company ;)

re: Nokia Kills Amber Router WiserNow- Most of the engineers at Amber came from Stratacom, not Ascend. Only the CEO (who was brought in late to help sell the company) and a few middle managers hailed from Ascend/Lucent.

Bobby:

You seem to be confused here on the company Cisco actually acquired. It was Allegro Systems and not Allegro Networks as you appear to believe. Allegro Systems was 39 people when acquired, so I doubt that they "swelled" their engineering ranks significantly. Lastly, they made VPN acceleration systems which I would hardly call a router.

Perhaps you should check your facts before you dash off these emails full of your sage insight and sweeping generalities.
