Top Ten Private Companies Revisited

After some heated arguments, much tinkering, and a barrage of feedback from readers and attendees of Opticon and Lightspeed Europe, Light Reading editors today published a revised list of its Top Ten Private Companies.

Last published in June of 2001, the list was in dire need of an overhaul. Introducing potential lists at Light Reading's conference events allowed attendees to influence the decision of editors with real live feedback.

If fact, the list, as published today, is substantially different from the one presented at the Lightspeed conference held in London two weeks ago. What's changed? If you weren't there, you may never know.

The new Top Ten Private Companies list is published here.

re: Top Ten Private Companies Revisited LR industry experts write:

"Unisphere this...Unisphere that...Unipshere is on target to..."

It's OPTISPHERE! With me now: OPTISPHERE!!!

Ohmygod - do you have part-time baby-sitters writing your articles?

re: Top Ten Private Companies Revisited Before you start laughing publicly, you should do some research.

Optisphere is a Siemens ICN subsidiary

Unisphere is a Siemens affiliate

With me now? UNISPHERE IS the company in the number 1 slot.

re: Top Ten Private Companies Revisited Where's:
Gotham Networks?
-----------------

Gotham is late with their product and probably
in trouble. But they have mostly just disappeared
from sight. They are a top ten in the dead pool
(which is actually a more interesting sort of
startup list at the moment than the top ten).

re: Top Ten Private Companies Revisited Optisphere is a different company.

Speaking of babysitters...

re: Top Ten Private Companies Revisited what is so funny, is that the optical company (OPTISPHERE)is NOT in the Top 10 Optical companies, but that the router/voice company UNISPHERE is !!!

Shame on you LR,you got to learn that a photon does not look like an electron

re: Top Ten Private Companies Revisited >Siemens spin-off is "Optisphere"
>not Unisphere...

No, they are two different companies. Both came from Siemens.
