Telco are busy getting the word out. Found this in my email from them. Will try to post the link to the white paper. "White Paper: Metro Ethernet Weatherproof Demarcation -Any service, any place, any time More than ever, the tremendous growth of Ethernet network deployments across the world is driving the need for metro service switches that can be deployed outdoors or in unconditioned indoor environments. This requires an environmentally hardened, physically secured enclosure to house the metro service switches. Telecommunications Service providers are looking for alternative solutions where traditional installations in a building are not possible because the customer or carrier does not offer 24 hour access. This white paper provides solutions to these challenges." FSE> Actually you can link to these white papers through Telco Website, worth looking at. As far as us investors go I feel we are at the stage where its definitely finally "all happening" the downside being that revenue will still be stunted until POC's turn into orders. Having said that they do appear to be selling some kit so really what we should be looking for in the next results is for them to be holding their own which they just might do. Medical Division Growth though should continue at @12% maybe higher which will have the effect of a combined growth for all division over 7% to 8%. Thats undervaluing this company at these levels. I feel we should be in the 34p to 36p range instead of struggling to break 20p. All IMO at time of writing. Heres the link hTTp://www.telco.com/index.php?page=resources&tab=resources_2

>cumnor.... I agree with that sentiment.re Telco. There has been significant movement in the medical division and whilst we lament the slow progress in the Telco division I think particularly new investors, who are not so familiar with past history, may be taking a look at the company from a different perspective. In 2009 BATM was split 78% Telco 22% Medical By 2015 BATM was split 40% Telco 60% Medical 2016 year end will see this trend continue estimate 37% Telco 63% Medical So what or how has the medical division done whilst Telco slid Revenue. Medical Division. 2009 30M 2010 41M (+37%) 2011 46M (+11%) 2012 49M (+6%) 2013 53M (+8%) 2014 59M (+11%) 2015 66M (+12%) Not sure if that formatted OK but you get the picture. This is strong sustainable growth over several years. At the present time I would expect the medical division to meet or exceed what they have done thus far. The valuation at 20P is more than justified for the Medical division alone and as such it is a pretty attractive growth play. Telco really is in there for nothing now as is the cyber security and the other small divisions. We really can't say how Telco will perform, they have the kit and all the awards, but too many unknowns. Edit: I am happy to share any research but remember its IMO. I also use this thread to look back to see what the situation was a year or more ago.

Thanks FSE. Surprised price rose today on what appeared to be very minor news and acquisiton-compared to some previous RNS's where there was not a stir. I suppose its the message of confidence it sends out and being in a position to pay cash-unlike many companies. Nice to get something on Telco soon though-or even a complete sale.

Heres the RNS if you have not already seen it. It gives us a much clearer picture as to just what BATM are up to. Its important as I have already said from a distribution aspect in a sector that is changing the way we look at and handle medical testing with emerging technologies. Whats it worth ? Well Zer handled some 2M of testing revenue, not sure what % was for example Down Syndrome testing. If we look at just potential revenue from Zer implementing Natura Panorama test it could be significant. These type of tests are becoming much more widely used due to them being just a blood test and far less invasive. Presently its a rapidly growing market but the company offerings are consolidating. My view on the matter as a whole is that BATM had the money, its a solid bolt on to boost distributorship. Honestly can't see a downside to this. BATM Acquires Zer Laboratories Ltd Feb 06, 2017 File: BATM acquires Zer Laboratories 06.02.17.pdf [248.81 KB] 6 February 2017 BATM Advanced Communications Limited (“BATM” or “the Group”) BATM Acquires Zer Laboratories Ltd BATM Advanced Communications Limited (LSE: BVC), a leading provider of real-time technologies for networking solutions and medical laboratory systems, is pleased to announce that it has entered into an agreement (the “AgreementR21;) to purchase the entire issued share capital of Zer Laboratories Ltd. (“Zer Laboratories”) for a consideration of NIS 2.75 million (approx. £580,000) payable in cash (the “Acquisition”). Overview of Zer Laboratories Zer Laboratories, headquartered in Tel Aviv, Israel and established in 1976, is the largest private diagnostic laboratory in Israel for clinical tests, mainly providing prenatal screening tests for Down’s Syndrome, genetic tests and additional tests performed during IVF and fertility treatments. Zer Laboratories unaudited revenues for full year 2015 amounted to $2.4 million and profit before tax was $27,000. The Acquisition is expected to be earnings accretive in the financial year ending 31 December 2017. Rationale for the Acquisition The Acquisition is in line with the Group’s stated strategy of becoming a prominent participant in the diagnostics markets in which it operates. The primary reasons for the Acquisition are: • Synergies with BATM’s existing offering of non-invasive prenatal tests (NIPT) using Panorama, the NIPT of Natera, which determines the chance that a pregnancy has certain chromosomal abnormalities; Natera is a NASDAQ-listed company offering proprietary bioinformatic solutions that enable laboratories worldwide to expand their test offerings; Natera granted distribution rights to BATM in Israel and Romania. • Capture the growth market in NIPT in Israel and markets in Europe where BATM has a significant presence; • BATM’s genetic laboratory, including sequencing machine that conducts genetic tests, is currently going through a certification process to carry out Panorama in Romania, which management expects to expand to Israel and offer this test through Zer Laboratories; • BATM intends to use Zer Laboratories for launching new, advanced diagnostic DNA-based tests in Israel; and • BATM intends to use Zer Laboratories as a local reference lab, together with several reputable European- and US-based labs, for new molecular biology solutions from Adaltis. Terms of the Acquisition Under the terms of the Agreement, the Group will pay the shareholders of Zer Laboratories an amount of NIS 2.75 million (approx. £580,000), upon completion, for the entire issued share capital of Zer Laboratories as follows: • Amount of NIS 1,560,000 (approx. £329,000) for the entire issued share capital to Avraham Zer (Holdings) Ltd (“Avraham̶1;); • Payment to Dr. Yigal Shaham an amount of NIS 550,000 (approx. £116,000) for the rights of Dr. Yigal Shaham in Zer Laboratories and for his Non-Competition Undertaking; • Payment to Tami Zer an amount of NIS 320,000 (approx. £67,500) for her Non-Competition Undertaking for a period of four years; and • Payment to Avi Zer an amount of NIS 320,000 for his Non-Competition Undertaking for a period of four years. In addition to the above, for calendar years 2017, 2018, 2019 and 2020, BATM will pay Avraham 20% of any increase in sales by Zer Laboratories compared with the sales generated in 2016 (in which the revenues shall be recorded on an accumulative basis), provided that the amount is not in excess of 40% of the net profit of Zer Laboratories in each such calendar year (subject to a monetary cap). Dr. Zvi Marom, Chief Executive Officer of BATM, said: “We are pleased to have acquired Zer Laboratories and welcome them to the Group. They enjoy an excellent reputation in Israel and provide much-needed tests and services to pregnant women. We look forward to building on the success and established footprint of Zer Laboratories, on the synergies with our operations in Romania, on our investment in Toldot, our genetics subsidiary, and on new developments from Adaltis, to widen the number of DNA-based tests that we can offer for the benefit of more women in our current geographies and beyond and deepen our involvement in molecular-biology-based testing.”

Interesting acquisition. BATM already use Natera Panorama test ...How similar is this test and procedure to Premaitha (epic NIPT) and Illumina tests. Premaitha itself is in a legal battle over patents with a larger company. Will have a look around and see what I can find out. Premaitha did manage to get its test used by the NHS. hTTp://www.premaitha.com/clinical-laboratories/clinical-labs-technology FSE> Note .. I will add content to this post as I have more info. Competitors and some valuations. hTTp://www.xconomy.com/san-francisco/2014/12/02/roche-enters-noninvasive-prenatal-test-market-with-ariosa-purchase/ This is the company thats suing Premaitha (UK company) This is the their offering hTTps://www.illumina.com/clinical/reproductive-genetic-health/nipt.html This is the company BATM use Natera, Panorama is their solution. Panorama screens for common genetic conditions that are caused by extra or missing chromosomes in the baby’s DNA. Panorama is the only NIPT on the market that tests for triploidy. FSE comment..... Putting all this in perspective These tests are made from a simple blood test. This replaces the need for Amniocentesis which is much more invasive and carries risks for complication ... its also not as accurate hTTp://www.natera.com/panorama-test What did we just acquire .... hTTp://www.zerhitech.com/in/about_us.html This is very much a distribution play, BATM are not picking up new technology but the synergies are most definitely evident. This is what BATM management said about the acquisition. " BATM's genetic laboratory, including sequencing machine that conducts genetic tests, is currently going through a certification process to carry out Panorama in Romania, which management expects to expand to Israel and offer this test through Zer Laboratories; -- BATM intends to use Zer Laboratories for launching new, advanced diagnostic DNA-based tests in Israel; and -- BATM intends to use Zer Laboratories as a local reference lab, together with several reputable European- and US-based labs, for new molecular biology solutions from Adaltis."

Hopefully this opportunity will clear some long term sellers out of the frame. Next update from BATM is in March some time I believe. They are IMO undervalued based on what the company is doing without Telco systems. At what point investors will look at that scenario is hard to say, at the moment they want to see Telco contracts. Honestly thats harsh treatment as what investors have here is a company that is holding its own, with the added opportunity of new business in Cyber security and SDN. The medical division is "virtually" ignored...

There was quite a bit of interest in BATM Telco in 2009 and they were tipped in IC. Will they do it again ? backdrop for them is substantially more solid this time around in 2017. Agree with robing comment above.... at least we did not lose our investment !!! thats true but really we are well overdue some action from this lot ..... Heres what they said in 2009 FWIW Shares in BATM, a designer and producer of ethernet and metropolitan telecom systems, were our star performers last year, rising from 24p to 54.25p, a gain of 126 per cent. Admittedly, if you followed my advice and top-sliced your holdings at 31.25p in May and 46.25p in June, then you would have recouped £972 of the £1,000 original investment and would now be holding shares worth £754. Still, that gives an impressive net return of 72.6 per cent. After this stellar run the shares now trade on 14.4 times 2009 earnings estimates of 6.2¢, based on forecasts from broker KBC Peel Hunt. This drops to a forward PE ratio of 13.7 assuming BATM delivers EPS of 6.5¢ in 2010. True, this is below its peer group average PE ratio of 18, and BATM does have a conservative balance sheet holding net cash of $68.7m (£42.1m) at the end of October, equating to around 10p a share. However, the shares are no longer the bargain they were 12 months ago and for the share-price momentum to continue we need to see rising data volumes and telecom operators capital expenditure budgets reinstated in the US and Europe. Given the risk/reward on offer, I would bank the remaining profits.

From above "The first large scale, commercial deployments of D-NFV and vCPE networking technologies will be happening in 2017. These technologies have been under evaluation for the past few years by service providers in most regions around the world." FSE> Its looked for some time as if general delays were always going to push this into 2017. In the mean time the Telco arm does appear to at least be breaking even. The rest of the company is starting to look as if its worth more than the current valuations for the entire outfit. Investors just want to see a decent Telco contract... nothing else seems to placate them.... ;-(

Telco Systems: Raanan Tzemach’s 2017 Telecom Trends 20 January 2017 In 2017 in many developing and emerging markets, telcos and other service providers will be completing significant upgrades to their network architectures and infrastructures. These network upgrades will enable services providers to meet the ongoing demand for more data traffic without significantly increasing capital or operational expenditures. Equally as important, service providers will also be able to leverage their upgraded networks to provide new and improved services and create new sources of revenue. 10GE and 100GE Carrier Ethernet network upgrades There is a growing need for network operators to upgrade their access network capacity. More and more network operators are expanding their access capacity to 10GE. Many network operators are even upgrading to 100GE for certain high density areas. Improving service quality and meeting the constantly growing demand for more data traffic are the main reasons behind these access network upgrades. This trend will certainly gain momentum among network operators in developing and emerging markets in 2017 and beyond. Deploying fully orchestrated networks will help network operators succeed with their network upgrades. Orchestrated networks will simplify both the network upgrade deployment activities and ongoing service provisioning and network maintenance efforts. D-NFV deployments The first large scale, commercial deployments of D-NFV and vCPE networking technologies will be happening in 2017. These technologies have been under evaluation for the past few years by service providers in most regions around the world. Many Tier 1 service providers in North America appear to be ready to go live with these technologies. Those service providers in developing and emerging markets that have been evaluating D-NFV and vCPE in their testing sites will likely be ready to roll out these technologies in their live environments towards the end of the year. The rollout of these technologies will enable service providers to create new and much needed revenue streams by providing business customers with a new range of virtualized IT services. For these upcoming and many of the future roll outs of D-NFV and vCPE, a debate is taking shape across the telco industry on how to best configure the deployment of these technologies. There is a current trend at the request of service providers to separate the hardware and software components of networking devices. The driver behind this separation is both to lower the cost of the hardware and encourage software innovation. As a result, a concept of a ‘gray box’ has emerged. This concept is based on using commoditized hardware to run a combination of dedicated software along with partial openness to add additional VNF services. More recently, an additional approach for ‘white boxes’ has also evolved. This concept provides a complete separation of the hardware and software and benefits service providers with a fully open and neutral framework to easily provision VNF services. The merits of both approaches will likely be widely discussed throughout 2017 with the white box concept likely to gain significant momentum and acceptance towards the end of the year. New advanced data services from cable operators targeted at business customers Many cable operators around the world are now in the process of or are considering upgrading their existing Docsis networks. By upgrading to Docsis 3.x, cable operators will be able to offer advanced data services to business customers, such as Dedicated Internet Access (DIA), L2VPN, L3VPN and inter-site and data center connectivity. For many cable operators, this will be their first experiences with services specifically for the business customer segment. In many developing and emerging markets, these new data services will be a welcome source of competition in the market for data services targeted at business customers. Raanan Tzemach is the Vice President of Product Management and Marketing at Telco Systems. Global Carrier Ethernet Telco Systems 10GE 100GE D-NFV hTTp://www.developingtelecoms.com/business/2017-trends/6889-telco-systems-raanan-tzemach-s-2017-telecom-trends.html The trails and POC's that telco systems have been engaged in for what would appear to be years, have jet to turn into significant contracts.
