Earlier this week,
) announced that it has joined hands with Vineyard Networks with
the express intent of speeding up network performances. This shall
be done by integrating LSI Corp.'s Axxia processor with Virtual
Pipeline technology with Vineyard's deep packet inspection (DPI)
Along with building a platform to identify real-time network
applications for optimum bandwidth usage, this solution will lower
host machine loads. Furthermore, it will provide a more
user-friendly and adaptable network platform.
There seems to be a growing need for application tracking and
network offloading in the world today as the number of applications
is increasing at a brisk pace. This venture, we are certain, would
help in the crucial task of effective traffic management and
network solution performance.
On April 25, 2012, LSI Corp. declared financial results for the
first quarter of 2012. Network revenues, which are an important
constituent of net revenues for the company, remained flat
sequentially accounting for only $107 million. We believe the
recent pact with Vineyard Networks would drive network sales
comprehensively in the upcoming quarter.
Making technological and product innovations is an attribute not
quite singular to LSI Corp. Yesterday,
Cirrus Logic Inc.
) made a momentous advancement in LED retrofit bulbs by launching
its second group of digital LED controllers with enhanced TruDim
dimmer compatibility technology. Hence, it would be wise for LSI
Corp. to remain abreast in the technology game to fend off
competition from bigger players.
The company currently retains a Zacks #3 Rank, which translates
into a short-term 'Hold' rating. However, we presently maintain our
'Neutral' recommendation on the stock.
