    • Though I suppose a buyout of HLIT is one possibility, another is that HLIT develops marketing partnerships with Sony or other companies so that they can package settop boxes with HLIT's equipment. Since settop boxes have been an important limiting factor slowing customer spending on system upgrades, getting a strong production commitment from one or more companies to produce large volumes of settop boxes at attractive prices could be a big help to HLIT in their sales negotiations.

      If customers become convinced that they can buy into a cost-effective open standard package rather than a proprietary turnkey solution from MOT or SFA, they are likely to jump at the advantages an open standard solution offers.
