re: ZTE Reports Losses, Plans Closures There are no anti trust laws in china to stop a Huawei ZTE combination. No?

That will never happen.  There is a deep hatred between the two companies.

re: ZTE Reports Losses, Plans Closures

I'm not surprised the first company to launch 10GEPON products would have losses.  This is a built-in loss leader to any product line.  PON hardware sucks the life out of a company.  Especially if used as a mobile backhaul market said to be too competitive. (1) The ratio of engineering exp. to returns on PON is another negative factor for the technology.


Of course optical volumes alone couldn;t account for loss of this magnitude so I wonder what else is the drag in terms of product or tech.


(1) "Stiff competition in the mobile phone business in China, the world's biggest market by subscribers, has cut ZTE's gross profit margin by 2.03 percentage points to 30.26 percent last year, according to its annual report."
