Re: Changes TCO plans for C-RAN?
It's different from the Cisco spin in model. This one had money out in by others before Cisco invested.

If that's the case we could see them edging closer and closer to actually being a full-blown RAN network provider, albeit with small cells and C-RAN at the forefront rather than a traditional full-blown macro play.

Re: Changes TCO plans for C-RAN?

Yep, lots of Cisco people onboard, or people who were with other startups that were bought by Cisco.

Re: Changes TCO plans for C-RAN?
Looks like a straightforward spin in to me. 4 out of six of the execs are Cisco employees vacationing at this startup, no? 

I know the spin in model is appealing for large incumbents but I'm forgetting why... other than it keeps folk who might otherwise leave connected to the mothership.

Might be worth a dig into this angle.

THis surely changes the cost of building out C-RAN and opens up the market if you can backhaul over wireless and fixed Ethernet infrastructure, right?
