Boca Switch Maker Set To Capitalize On Internet Voice Calls

Boca Switch Maker Set To Capitalize On Internet Voice Calls

February 4, 2004

By Ted Jackson

When Nortel Networks won a big order last month for switches that allow voice calls to be carried over the Internet, there were smiles all around at Boca Raton-based high-tech switch maker CopperCom.

Baby Bell Verizon Communications said it would buy as much as $2 billion worth of cutting-edge Internet calling gear from Nortel, sending the telecom equipment giant's stock rocketing 20 percent higher in a matter of hours. Investors speculated that a round of investments by telephone companies in Internet voice call systems could help pull telecom equipment makers out of a crushing three-year slump, their worst ever.

Though not participants in the Verizon deal, executives at privately held CopperCom knew the market for their software-based Internet calling switches, called "softswitches," would likely get a big lift from Nortel's contract.

"It's like getting the Good Housekeeping Seal of Approval," said CopperCom Chief Executive Mike Myers, pointing out that Verizon is the first Baby Bell to make a major network commitment to Internet calling. "Verizon's announcement brings a lot of credibility to the Internet voice technology we have been promoting for years."

CopperCom's revenues were up 300 percent last quarter, according to Myers, as interest by telephone companies in Internet calling has begun to surge.

Known as voice-over-Internet-protocol, or VOIP, Internet calling has taken the telecommunications world by storm in recent months. With VOIP, calls are routed cheaply and efficiently using technology that was previously used exclusively for moving Internet data traffic.

Voip technology allows voice calling packages, like those sold by Internet call leader Vonage Digital Voice, to be offered to consumers at prices 15 percent to 25 percent less than packages offered by providers of traditional phone service, such as BellSouth.

Cable company Time Warner and long distance giant AT&T announced late last year they will use Internet call technology as means of entering the local service phone business, attacking the Baby Bells on their home turf.

CopperCom, which has burned through $300 million in venture capital since its inception, was bought last May by private equity investor Heico LLC of Chicago. As part of Heico's reorganization of the company, CopperCom went into bankruptcy for a three-month period.

The purchase of CopperCom is looking very timely as orders for Internet calling equipment began to rise sharply late last year.

Phoenix-based Synergy Research Group estimates the overall market for Internet calling equipment grew 23 percent in 2003 to $589 million. Researcher Frost & Sullivan expects the market will grow eightfold by 2008.

Heico, which is controlled by famed turnaround investor Michael Heisley and owns companies with combined revenues of $1.3 billion, predicted when it bought the company in May that CopperCom would generate $100 million in revenues within four years.

CopperCom plans to get there by concentrating on serving the 1,200 independent phone companies throughout the nation, a market that is often ignored by large equipment manufacturers like Nortel, Lucent Technologies and others.

Myers just got back from a sales swing through Iowa, which has more than 100 phone companies, more than any other state. "It's the ideal market for us," he said.

Analysts believe companies like CopperCom now have a real shot at making it. "There is clearly an opportunity out there," said Charles Golvin, senior analyst at San Francisco-based Forrester Research.
