Competitors Alcatel-Lucent, Ericsson, Huawei and Juniper all still put significant investments into ASICs. Others however like Arista and Extreme use off the shelf chips from Broadcom and others.

They might be forced to do whether they like it or not...if every box maker standardize on commonly available ICs nothing would prevent a new competitor from copy and paste operation in China...your own ASIC might be the only real solution to that threat, suing might be more challenging...Kris

It's great to hear that Cisco still sees a competitive advantage in designing its own ASICs.

If this sentiment is strongly embedded in Cisco culture then the company is bound to be the next DEC. And I don't mean that as a compliment

NEXT UPCOMING BROADCAST
In conjunction with unveiling of EE Times’ Silicon 60 list, journalist & Silicon 60 researcher Peter Clarke hosts a conversation on startups in the electronics industry. One of Silicon Valley's great contributions to the world has been the demonstration of how the application of entrepreneurship and venture capital to electronics and semiconductor hardware can create wealth with developments in semiconductors, displays, design automation, MEMS and across the breadth of hardware developments. But in recent years concerns have been raised that traditional venture capital has turned its back on hardware-related startups in favor of software and Internet applications and services. Panelists from incubators join Peter Clarke in debate.
