Research and Development

The industry in which we compete is subject to rapid technological developments, evolving industry standards, changes in customer requirements, and continuing developments in communications service offerings. Our continuing ability to adapt to these changes, and to develop new and enhanced products, is a significant factor in maintaining or improving our competitive position and our prospects for growth. Therefore, we continue to make significant investments in product development.

We conduct the majority of our research and product development activities at our Oakland, California campus. In Oakland, we have built an extensive communications laboratory with hundreds of access infrastructure products from multiple vendors that serve as an interoperability and test facility. This facility allows us to emulate a communications network with serving capacity equivalent to that supporting a city of 350,000 residents. We also have focused engineering staff and activities at additional development centers located in Alpharetta, Georgia, Largo, Florida, Westlake Village, California, and Portsmouth, New Hampshire.

Our product development activities focus on products to support both existing and emerging technologies in the segments of the communications industry that we consider viable revenue opportunities. We are actively engaged in continuing to refine our SLMS architecture, introducing new products under our SLMS architecture, and creating additional interfaces and protocols for both domestic and international markets.

We continue our commitment to invest in leading edge technology research and development. Our research and product development expenditures were $27.1 million, $32.7 million, and $36.1 million, in 2008, 2007 and 2006, respectively. All of our expenditures for research and product development costs, as well as stock-based compensation expense relating to research and product development, have been expensed as incurred. These amounts include stock-based compensation of $0.5 million, $0.7 million, and $1.6 million reported under Statement of Financial Accounting Standards No. 123 (revised 2004), Share-Based Payment (SFAS 123R) for 2008, 2007, and 2006, respectively. We plan to continue to support the development of new products and features, while seeking to carefully manage associated costs through expense controls.

In addition, we also charged to expense purchased in-process research and development relating to acquisitions of $1.2 million in 2005. We plan to continue to support the development of new products and features, while seeking to carefully manage associated costs through expense controls.
