  23. 23. Accolades from Industry – A Sample of What Customers/Partners Say ... <ul><li>“… demonstrated an extraordinary capability to take on technically challenging tasks , and always delivered the results on time and schedule … work [on the project] led to the filing of a few technical patents for the company … highly recommend [your] consulting service to any institution …” Dr. Charles Chen, Sr. Director of Strategic Marketing & Engineering, Cortina Systems (on working with Metanoia, Inc. at a previous company) </li></ul><ul><li>“ I think it says a lot when someone like an equipment vendor engages with a third party for product assessment, and then later has an interest in presenting you to our [carrier] customers as an independent reference and resource that they can engage with . And that clearly would not have occurred if we didn't have the highest regard for the integrity that you approached us with … In all of those cases, I recall stepping away with a high-level of confidence that you had navigated a fairly difficult engagement ...” Tim Flood, VP of Engineering & Operations, Red Condor (on working with Metanoia, Inc. at a previous company) </li></ul><ul><li>“… deep knowledge of networking devices and switching architectures … pleasant to work with and very responsive ” Eyan Dagan, CEO, Dune Networks, Israel </li></ul>
  24. 24. Accolades from Industry – A Sample of What Customers/Partners Say ... <ul><li>“… one of the key differentiators for Metanoia, Inc. was that you absolutely became part of the team. It was just seamless ... you worked very well from an interpersonal perspective with the team, as well as from a technology perspective . Absolutely stood out, and frankly I haven’t seen it work that well in any other scenario . I think it was very crisply run as a project , and I think that's a differentiator as well, because you don't normally get that when you're talking about a key area of deep-dive technology that you're looking to bring into an existing product. You might find some strong technical people , but they don't have the savviness and the sensitivity to timeframes, and planning, and looking at dependencies [that you did], and I think that was a key differentiator as well. That went very well in terms of providing us ... with a timeline as to how this was going to unfold, and then executing to that timeline ” Kevin Pope, SVP Product Development, Calix Networks (on working with Metanoia, Inc. at a previous co.) </li></ul><ul><li>“ … very active in both academic societies like IEEE ComSoc and standard bodies like IETF … knowledge of telecommunications technologies are deep and comprehensive, and span the gamut : MPLS, GMPLS, traffic engineering, VPNs, wired and wireless networking, IP QoS ,” Dr. Kohei Shiomoto, Group Leader & Supervisor, NTT Japan </li></ul><ul><li>“… brilliant educator ... good insights into the direction of the Telcommunications Industry at large … would highly recommend …” Dr. Rajesh Krishnaswamy, Senior Network Consultant, Reliance Infocomm, India </li></ul>
  25. 25. Accolades from Industry – A Sample of What Customers/Partners Say ... <ul><li>“ I am impressed with the ability of your team to work with the members of our organization, who had their day jobs ... [yet] you were able to point questions, paint scenarios, sit down, grab a couple of hours here and there ... and extract the information, and piece it together ... so the process you used, in a very complex situation, I think was very efficient. You ran to a 100% , even if some of it was not on the clock, and I think that’s an incredible testament to the integrity that you bring ... </li></ul><ul><li>I’ve built a confidence, if I’m going to engage Metanoia, Inc. what needs to be done will be executed, and, in large parts, will be exceeded certainly . So, I would definitely recommend you ... because you have got system-level knowledge and network-level, network-wide knowledge ... and I think you would get them [carriers] to an end solution faster” Jose Enciso, Director, Systems Engineering & Product Planning, Tellabs </li></ul><ul><li>“ … done a great deal of innovative work on the design and operation of high-speed networks and switching systems … one of the very few [experts] in this field that know very well both the architectural and the opto-electronic technology issues, as well as the protocol issues that arise when devices are put together in a network …” Dr. Manos Varvarigos, Director, Network Technologies Center, Computer Technology Institute, Greece </li></ul><ul><li>“ What you do is fairly unique … Your level of engagement, I can't say that I actually have [seen it elsewhere], where what you offer are services that are very technical and capable of doing very technical, in depth, investigative exercises, which are very difficult to get , in my prior experience, very difficult to get someone that really put in the effort to learn the ins and outs .
