We believe that CCPU, which is a measure of the costs of serving a customer, provides relevant and useful information and is used by our management to evaluate the operating performance of our business.
Certain of the comparative figures in the prior period have been reclassified to conform to the current period CCPU presentation.
The following schedule reflects the CCPU calculation and provides a reconciliation of the cost of serving customers used for the CCPU calculation to total network costs plus general and administrative costs reported on our condensed consolidated statements of operations:
eNodeB: Complete LTE small cell eNodeB MicroTCA reference design including PHY, MAC layer, PDCP, Control, RLC and Transport layer using picoChip PHY, CCPU
Trilium Software L2-L7 stack running on OCTEON Processor
Year-over-year CCPU decreased due to cost saving initiatives and the customer base moving towards lower ARPU products which incur lower servicing costs.
Compared to the third quarter of 2008, all components of CCPU (network costs, general and administrative, and subsidy loss unrelated to customer acquisition) decreased in absolute terms.
