Eli Fruchter, CEO of EZchip, commented, "2012 was another transition year for EZchip. First, we completed the transition to Cisco becoming our largest customer, with all revenues being royalty-based, thereby increasing our gross margins to 84% and maintaining our outstanding 49% net margin in line with the net margin we achieved in 2010 and 2011. Second, we transitioned to NP-4, which surpassed the NP-3 run rate in its first full production year, and became our largest revenue generator. Finally, we laid the foundation for the NPS line of network processors for smart networks that will target both next-generation edge routers and data centers, and we believe could double our total available market.

"Of our five major NP-4 customers, two are in production and two entered production at the end of the third quarter and have placed initial production orders. The fifth customer, Huawei, is also expected to enter production in the first quarter; however, it has not yet placed any production orders and we believe Huawei may proceed to offer a lower-end in-house solution in parallel to the high-end NP-4 solution. 

"Looking ahead, we believe that high-end NPUs, such as the NP-4, are required for high-end edge routers to be competitive. Therefore, based on the success of our customer products in the marketplace and the level of carriers' investment in Internet infrastructure, we believe NP-4 can significantly increase our revenues in the next few years. As for this year, we expect year-over-year growth in both Q1 and 2013, also when compared with 2011."

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Information

In addition to disclosing financial results calculated in accordance with United States generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP), this release of operating results also contains non-GAAP financial measures, which EZchip believes are the principal indicators of the operating and financial performance of its business. The non-GAAP financial measures exclude the effects of stock-based compensation expenses recorded in accordance with FASB ASC 718, amortization of intangible assets, one-time charge due to early repayment of OCS grants and taxes on income.  Management believes the non-GAAP financial measures provided are useful to investors' understanding and assessment of the Company's on-going core operations and prospects for the future, as the charges eliminated are not part of the day-to-day business or reflective of the core operational activities of the Company.  Management uses these non-GAAP financial measures as a basis for strategic decisions, forecasting future results and evaluating the Company's current performance.  However, such measures should not be considered in isolation or as substitutes for results prepared in accordance with GAAP.  Reconciliation of the non-GAAP measures to the most comparable GAAP measures are provided in the schedules attached to this release.

* During December 2011 we made a one-time early payment of $9.9 million to the Israeli Office of Chief Scientist, representing the full balance of the contingent liability related to the NP-4 and NPA grants received. Upon making this payment, we have eliminated all future royalty obligations related to our anticipated NP-4 and NPA revenues and saved the associated future interest payments related to such obligations. This amount was excluded from the non-GAAP statements of operations as it represents future royalty obligations.

** Taxes on income represent the non-cash utilization of a deferred tax asset with respect to the Company's estimate of its accumulated taxable income in accordance with FASB ASC 740. During 2011, EZchip Technologies, the Company's main subsidiary completed the utilization of the deferred tax asset, and started to enjoy the ten year period of exemption from Israeli corporate taxes due to benefits provided pursuant to its Israeli approved and privileged enterprise programs.

*** In calculating diluted non-GAAP net income per share, the diluted weighted average number of shares outstanding excludes
the effects of stock-based compensation expenses in accordance with FASB ASC 718.

* During December 2011 we made a one-time early payment of $9.9 million to the Israeli Office of Chief Scientist, representing the full balance of the contingent liability related to the NP-4 and NPA grants received. Upon making this payment, we have eliminated all future royalty obligations related to our anticipated NP-4 and NPA revenues and saved the associated future interest payments related to such obligations. This amount was excluded from the non-GAAP operating cash flow as it represents future royalty obligations.

With the proliferation of connected devices underpinning new Internet of Things systems, Brandon Schulz, Director of Luxoft IoT – Retail, will be looking at the transformation of the retail customer experience in brick and mortar stores in his session at @ThingsExpo. Questions he will address include: Will beacons drop to the wayside like QR codes, or be a proximity-based profit driver? How will the customer experience change in stores of all types when everything can be instrumented and analyzed? As an area of investment, how might a retail company move towards an innovation methodolo...
Contrary to mainstream media attention, the multiple possibilities of how consumer IoT will transform our everyday lives aren’t the only angle of this headline-gaining trend. There’s a huge opportunity for “industrial IoT” and “Smart Cities” to impact the world in the same capacity – especially during critical situations. For example, a community water dam that needs to release water can leverage embedded critical communications logic to alert the appropriate individuals, on the right device, as soon as they are needed to take action.
Manufacturing connected IoT versions of traditional products requires more than multiple deep technology skills. It also requires a shift in mindset, to realize that connected, sensor-enabled “things” act more like services than what we usually think of as products. In his session at @ThingsExpo, David Friedman, CEO and co-founder of Ayla Networks, will discuss how when sensors start generating detailed real-world data about products and how they’re being used, smart manufacturers can use the data to create additional revenue streams, such as improved warranties or premium features. Or slash...
WebRTC services have already permeated corporate communications in the form of videoconferencing solutions.

In his session at @ThingsExpo, Narayan Sainaney, Co-founder and CTO of Mojio, will discuss how the business case for connected car apps is growing and, with open platform companies having already done the heavy lifting, there really is no barrier to entry.
As more intelligent IoT applications shift into gear, they’re merging into the ever-increasing traffic flow of the Internet. It won’t be long before we experience bottlenecks, as IoT traffic peaks during rush hours. Organizations that are unprepared will find themselves by the side of the road unable to cross back into the fast lane. As billions of new devices begin to communicate and exchange data – will your infrastructure be scalable enough to handle this new interconnected world?
All major researchers estimate there will be tens of billions devices - computers, smartphones, tablets, and sensors - connected to the Internet by 2020. This number will continue to grow at a rapid pace for the next several decades. With major technology companies and startups seriously embracing IoT strategies, now is the perfect time to attend @ThingsExpo, November 3-5, 2015, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA. Learn what is going on, contribute to the discussions, and ensure that your enterprise is as "IoT-Ready" as it can be.
The Internet of Things is in the early stages of mainstream deployment but it promises to unlock value and rapidly transform how organizations manage, operationalize, and monetize their assets. IoT is a complex structure of hardware, sensors, applications, analytics and devices that need to be able to communicate geographically and across all functions. Once the data is collected from numerous endpoints, the challenge then becomes converting it into actionable insight.
