Revenue-Recognition Problems in the Communications Equipment Industry
Designed to explore recognition issues in the context of a potential market downturn. In late 2000, Lucent Technologies reports multiple revisions to its recent financial results due to revenue recognition problems, leading to a dramatic decline in its stock price.

From the perspective of a securities analyst covering the industry, are the troubles at Lucent indicitive of larger revenue recognition issues throughout the industry? Facilitates a discussion of potential early warning signs of the risks faced by Lucent's competitors.
