Ikanos Communications, Inc. (NASDAQ: IKAN), a leading provider of advanced broadband semiconductor and software products for the digital home, today announced its financial results for the fourth quarter and fiscal year of 2012, ended December 30, 2012.
"For the fourth quarter, we met the high-end of our revenue guidance with revenue of $31.8 million while recording GAAP operating expenses of $19.3 million, within our guidance range of $19 to 20 million," said Dennis Bencala, CFO of Ikanos. "We continued to effectively manage our business and our cash position with cash totaling approximately $31.2 million at year end."
Omid Tahernia, president and CEO, said, "Fiscal 2012 was a pivotal year for Ikanos in which we established a solid baseline of business while reducing portfolio complexity and managing operating expenses and gross margins. We completed the development of our Velocity-3 chipset and launched this industry-first NodeScale vectoring chipset at the October Broadband World Forum. We are pleased with the positive carrier reception we received as well as a number of service providers who have announced their intent to invest Capex on vectored VDSL2."
"We also began the ramp of our Fusiv® family of CPE products early in the year which by Q4 2012 represented 37% of the company's revenue. This family of CPE products brings to market a number of leadership features such as NodeScale vectoring and VDSL2 bonding. Additionally we announced the newest member of this family, our Vx185-HP, at the 2013 CES show."
Ikanos reports its financial results in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP) and additionally on a non-GAAP basis. Non-GAAP net income (loss), where applicable, excludes the income statement effects of stock-based compensation, restructuring charges, the amortization of intangible assets and gains on the sale of impaired assets. Ikanos has provided these measures because its management believes these additional non-GAAP measures are useful to investors for performing financial analysis as these additional measures highlight Ikanos' recurring operating results. Ikanos' management uses these non-GAAP measures internally to evaluate its operating performance and to plan for its future. However, non-GAAP measures are not a substitute for GAAP reporting. For a reconciliation of GAAP versus non-GAAP financial information, please see the attached schedules.

As operational failure becomes more acceptable to discuss within the software industry, the necessity for holding constructive, actionable postmortems increases. But most of what we know about postmortems from "pop culture" isn't actually relevant for the software systems we work on and within. In his session at DevOps Summit, J. Paul Reed will look at postmortem pitfalls, techniques, and tools you'll be able to take back to your own environment so they will be able to lay the foundations for h...

Too often with compelling new technologies market participants become overly enamored with that attractiveness of the technology and neglect underlying business drivers. This tendency, what some call the “newest shiny object syndrome,” is understandable given that virtually all of us are heavily engaged in technology. But it is also mistaken. Without concrete business cases driving its deployment, IoT, like many other technologies before it, will fade into obscurity.

Containers are all the rage among developers and web companies, but they also represent two very substantial benefits to larger organizations. First, they have the potential to dramatically accelerate the application lifecycle from software builds and testing to deployment and upgrades. Second they represent the first truly hybrid-approach to consuming infrastructure, allowing organizations to run the same workloads on any cloud, virtual machine or physical server. Together, they represent a ver...

IT data is typically silo'd by the various tools in place. Unifying all the log, metric and event data in one analytics platform stops finger pointing and provides the end-to-end correlation. Logs, metrics and custom event data can be joined to tell the holistic story of your software and operations. For example, users can correlate code deploys to system performance to application error codes.

Cloud computing delivers on-demand resources that provide businesses with flexibility and cost-savings. The challenge in moving workloads to the cloud has been the cost and complexity of ensuring the initial and ongoing security and regulatory (PCI, HIPAA, FFIEC) compliance across private and public clouds. Manual security compliance is slow, prone to human error, and represents over 50% of the cost of managing cloud applications. Determining how to automate cloud security compliance is critical...
