Quick Guide:Force10 E-SeriesSpecial Note Regarding Forward Looking StatementsThis presentation contains forward-looking statements that involve substantial risks and uncertainties, including but not limited to, statements relating to goals, plans, objectives and future events. All statements, other than statements of historical facts, included in this presentation regarding our strategy, future operations, future financial position, future revenues, projected costs, prospects and plans and objectives of management are forward-looking statements. The words “anticipates,” “believes,” “estimates,” “expects,” “intends,” “may,” “plans,” “projects,” “will,” “would” and similar expressions are intended to identify forward-looking statements, although not all forward-looking statements contain these identifying words. Examples of such statements include statements relating to [products and product features on our roadmap, the timing and commercial availability of such products and features, the performance of such products and product features, statements concerning expectations for our products and product features [and projections of revenue or other financial terms]. These statements are based on the current estimates and assumptions of management of Force10 as of the date hereof and are subject to risks, uncertainties, changes in circumstances, assumptions and other factors that may cause the actual results to be materially different from those reflected in our forward looking statements. We may not actually achieve the plans, intentions or expectations disclosed in our forward-looking statements and you should not place undue reliance on our forward-looking statements. In addition, our forward-looking statements do not reflect the potential impact of any future acquisitions, mergers, dispositions, joint ventures or investments we may make. We do not assume any obligation to update any forward-looking statements.The E-Series Vision: Resilient Core Switch/Router Optimized for EthernetCiscoExtremeFoundryCiscoJuniperE-Series Vision – Combining the Best of Switching and RoutingLayer 2/3 SwitchingForce10 E-SeriesLayer 3 RoutingDensityCost-effectiveDiverse Ethernet MediaRich L2 FeaturesLight L3 FeaturesCarrier-class Performance, Resiliency and ScalabilityUnparalleled Ethernet Density and Interface DiversityRich L2 and L3 Features100 GbE ReadyPerformanceResiliencyScalabilityInterface DiversityRich L3 FeaturesIndustry’s most scalable resiliencyIndustry’s most scalable securityInvestment Protection for 40 and 100 GbETeraScale E-SeriesA New Generation of 10 Gigabit Ethernet
