We are making key, targeted moves as we align operations in support of our network-centric platform strategy,” said Chambers, Cisco chairman and CEO, in a statement. As we move forward, our consumer efforts will focus on how we help our enterprise and service provider customers optimize and expand their offerings for consumers, and help ensure the network's ability to deliver on those offerings.”

In connection with the changes to the consumer business, it is anticipated that Cisco will recognize restructuring charges to its GAAP financial results, with an aggregate pre-tax impact not expected to exceed $300 million during the third and fourth quarters of fiscal 2011.

ALLENTOWN, Pa. — Lucent Technologies Inc.'s Microelectronics Group here announced a low-power chip set for embedded modem applications in that tie a range of systems, handheld devices, and set-top boxes together over phone lines at speeds up to 56 kilobits per second.

Lucent's chip set consists of a digital signal processor (DSP) and a codec chip. The company emphasized the small form factor of the chip set, saying that each device in the solution was three-eighths of an inch on a side. Each IC consumes 150 milliwatts of power at 3.3 volts, which Lucent said is about half the amount of other chips used in embedded modem applications.

The chip set supports both fax and data services with up to 56-kilobit/sec. modem speeds.

The chip set supports four different services with different versions of the DSP chip. The DP2V90DX supports V.90 (56 Kbit/sec.) data and V.34 (up to 33.6 Kbit/sec.) data rates, as well as V.34 fax rates. The DP2V34X handles V.34 data and V.34 fax transmissions. The DP2V34X supports V.34 fax, and the DP2V32DX supports V.32 data and V.17 (up to 14.4 Kbit/sec.) fax.

Lucent said the new modem chip set can also operate using batteries at a voltage level as low as 2.7 volts. The chip set does not require external memory chips, which reduces system costs, Lucent said.

Internet infrastructure represents Conexant's fastest-growing business,” said Arun Veerappan, an analyst at Robertson Stephens Inc., San Francisco. The spinoff of the business will likely unlock significant value from Conexant's stock.”

Ashok Kumar, an analyst at U.S. Bancorp Piper Jaffray Inc., in Menlo Park, Calif., said the proposed Internet infrastructure company represents Conexant's crown jewels.” The spinoff could easily and quickly achieve a market capitalization equivalent to the entire company today, while the personal networking company is likely to achieve only book value, according to Kumar.

But given this likely outcome, he added, the change could cause a problem once Conexant determines which employees will be assigned to which com- pany. How are they going to draw a line in the sand?” Kumar asked. Who will want to be left behind? And given the competitive nature of Broadcom just down the road [Broadcom is located in Irvine, Calif.], it could be a difficult situation.”

The Internet infrastructure company, which is expected to achieve revenue of $550 million in its current fiscal year ending Sept. 29, and has projected revenue of around $1 billion for calendar year 2001, will provide semiconductors and software ranging from physical-layer access devices to switch fabric, as well as network-processor products for high-speed optical cores, according to Decker.

Although the businesses within the Internet infrastructure company currently represent only 30% of Conexant's total revenue, they are responsible for 60% of its earnings per share, said Rick Billy, an analyst at SG Cowen Securities Corp., New York.
