EZchip (EZCH +2.6%) had a roller-coaster ride after Kerrisdale Capital issued a report voicing concerns about Broadcom's (BRCM) entry into the carrier network processor market, arguing the company's ability to offer an end-to-end solution for line cards gives it an edge. Kerrisdale also warns of competition from Marvell's (MRVL) Xelerated unit, and argues EZchip's NPS processor will be at a manufacturing disadvantage relative to private Netronome. Shares rebounded after Feltl defended EZchip, asserting Broadcom's chips are handicapped by a lack of an integrated traffic manager, and noting Cisco and ZTE will use EZchip's NP-5 processor.
