Bandwidth management A type of Sonet/SDH circuit called a virtual tributary of 1.5-Mbit/second granularity (VT1.5) can be used to achieve bandwidth granularity and flexibility on Sonet/SDH networks. Virtual tributaries may be created not only to minimize wastage of ring bandwidth but also as a static means of controlling the volume of traffic a user adds to the network. However, such circuits increase the network overhead.

German mixed signal specialist X-Fab Semiconductor Foundries is to buy Zarlink's Plymouth wafer fab for an undisclosed amount.

There's always a lag effect,” he said. Those closest to the customer will experience the first demands, with tier- one and tier-two suppliers probably lagging by a quarter or two.”

Borzych's caveat for designers is to work very closely with their suppliers early in the design. Typically, if a customer designs-in a high-frequency inductor, he can only use that particular inductor for that design,” he said. It's very difficult, especially when the devices get smaller, to change one inductor technology or manufacturer for another.”

And this week Grace confirmed that it is still on schedule to begin production in March 2003.

  • TAIPEI, Taiwan—InComm Technologies Co. Ltd., a Taiwan-based system-on-chip services provider, has introduced a platform dubbed InPlat to accelerate the SoC design process. The platform is specially designed for applications such as communications and multimedia,” said InComm president Tony Lo.

    That said, contact centers popping up in such distant locales as India, Indonesia, the Philippines and Barbados are providing American-style service. Customer feedback indicates comparable levels of quality among domestic and offshore agents. Robb Krieg, vice president of operations at on-line travel company Expedia, notes, for example, that the firm's outsourced Manila contact and fulfillment center, which handles a small portion of customer calls, consistently scores at the high end of the curve,” in customer surveys of Expedia's nine centers. Amazon.com achieved similar results from its e-mail contact center in India, says Bill Price, founder of Driva Solutions and a former Amazon.com vice president.

    ZettaCom said it expects to announce at least one such deal within the next few months.
