    Pros

    Excellent engineering talent, good working environment, good career path. It attracted a lots of talent from big company like TI, QC, Nokia, etc., great deal to learn from each other.

    Cons

    Bad market to enter (WiMAX). If they picked LTE to start with, it may be a success story. Overall strategy unclear.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Unfortunately it is too late. It should have been started with LTE, not to acquire IPW, and be more cautious on cost.
