re: Turin Trolls In $50M Hmmm...

A startup that can count its product offerings on one hand? That doesn't sound too bad. Maybe they can actually deliver that rather than promising the moon as has become the custom over the last few years. No one has delivered the moon yet.

I can remember when a startup had to concentrate on doing just one thing REALLY well. Maybe we are returning to more rational days. so, how many hands would you like to use to count the number of projects in your next startup? I'd suggest that if it is more than one, maybe you should get out of startups and stop contributing to giving them a bad name.

Just my own wacky idea.

re: Turin Trolls In $50M I think its interesting what vendors consider Live Traffic... Bah... Its also interesting to wonder what interfaces they have today. Not on slides but actual physical interfaces available today for deployment. I have a sinking suspicion that I could count what they have Beta ready on one hand. Its amazing what happens when one startup makes it, the purse strings get looser for the others.
Of course another question is stability. From what I've heard of "Testing" on this platform it is VERY immature, which of course is to be expected for something so young.
Hmm, this last part is actually funny... They listened to RBOCs to help deliever Ethernet? Come again? Do they even have OSMINE complete... The answer is no. Last I checked Telcordia didn't have ethernet provisions built into TIRKS. But I could be wrong... Oh well time will tell maybe this could follow Redback's footsteps which followed Cerents... A complete success story 6 months behind the leader. Then again maybe not.

re: Turin Trolls In $50M Does anyone know what Coriolis Networks is upto these days? They got around $32M recently and are building more or less a similar (multi-service box targetted to metro core and metro egde) to what Turin is building and it has been there since 1999.

re: Turin Trolls In $50M Does anyone know the post-valuation of this company with their 'kick-ass' product?
