Milpitas will lose a huge chunk of the locally-based company LSI Corp. to N. San Jose as soon as early 2013. LSI announced this week it plans to move 850 of its Milpitas-based employees to new offices in N. San Jose. While this is good news for San Jose, it is certainly bad news for Milpitas. News reports indicate LSI plans to take over a 220,591-square-foot office and research and development campus at 1310 and 1320 Ridder Park Drive in San Jose by the first quarter of 2013. LSI is reportedly purchasing the property, rather than leasing it.
Cisco, one of the largest employers in Milpitas, had a busy week. The networking giant introduced a new line of Linksys EA Series Smart WiFi Routers with app-enabled capabilities for users to connect their home or small-office/home-office (SOHO) setups. The three Smart Wi-Fi Routers offer support for Cisco Connect Cloud, the next generation of Cisco Connect software, which provides any time, any place management of multiple home networks.
When it wasn’t busy focusing on the release of its new routers, Cisco was frantically trying to correct a big snafu. An error in reconfiguring Cisco's IronPort SenderBase e-mail security service caused it to accidentally block outbound e-mail for Australian businesses earlier this week, and perhaps for some globally. Australian news outlets explained that algorithm updates to the service that focused on newly identified internet traffic behaviors in an effort to detect spam and phishing activity caused the blockage of legitimate e-mail. Cisco reportedly detected the problem Tuesday morning in California and fixed it by Tuesday night.
Milpitas-based ABBYY, a provider of document recognition, data capture, linguistic technologies and professional services, on Thursday announced the release of ABBYY Lingvo Server, the corporate cloud- and intranet-based solution of the multilingual dictionary, ABBYY Lingvo. The new edition can be installed on a company web or intranet server to deliver a single, centrally managed, language translation solution for organizations and enterprises. Carmela Wong, vice-president of marketing for ABBYY USA, which is headquartered in Milpitas, said in a press release this week, “ABBYY Lingvo Server gives employees across an organization access to an online translation and communications tool, regardless of if they are in the office or using a specific computer,” she explained. “This equips an organization's mobile workers, whether native-English speaking or not, with the necessary tools to work with multi-lingual documents, ensuring that important information isn't lost in translation."
