Even without merit, party ownership may result in a significant amount of expenditure on financial and management resources, or in a ban on the distribution of certain products.
These claims can have a significant adverse effect on our business, financial position and results of operations.
Our software products are vulnerable to unauthorized replication and use, and this unauthorized use is difficult to regulate.
In general, our efforts to protect our intellectual property rights through patents, copyrights, trademark and trade laws and contractual safeguards may not be able to effectively prevent the theft of our technology, or prevent others from developing and designing products or technologies similar to or competing with the products or technologies we develop.
Our failure or inability to protect our ownership may have a significant adverse effect on our business, our financial position and the results of our operations.
We outsource our hardware manufacturing business to contract manufacturers.
This strategy enables us to focus on our core competencies.
Design hardware and software systems for customers and provide solutions
Avoid investment capital-
Intensive electronic manufacturing infrastructure.
Outsourcing also provides us with the ability to increase delivery to meet demand growth without increasing fixed costs.
Our manufacturers are responsible for obtaining the components and supplies needed to make our products.
While components and supplies often come from a variety of sources, manufacturers often depend on a limited number of suppliers.
In the past, unexpected demand for communications products led to a global shortage of certain electronic parts and the distribution of these parts by suppliers, this adversely affects the manufacturer\'s ability to deliver the product and the cost of producing these parts.
Due to the general supply of our products by the manufacturer, we do not believe that the loss of any of our manufacturers will last for a long time
Although there may be significant adverse effects in the short term, but for our business
Adversely affect our business.
We usually try to keep enough inventory to meet the customer\'s demand for the product and meet the expected sales level.
If our portfolio changes in unexpected ways, or if the sales of a particular product are not achieved as expected, we may have excess inventory or inventory become obsolete.
In this case, the results of our operations may be negatively affected.
The use of government-regulated radio emissions is regulated by a variety of federal agencies in the United States, including the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) and the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA ).
National agencies have also enacted regulations on the use of laser and radio/induction emission standards.
Regulators in the US and other countries we may operate in the future may need to make changes to some of our products so that we continue to produce and sell our products in these areas.
As part of normal operation, our products intentionally transmit radio signals, including narrow band and spectrum signals.
We have obtained the certification of the products that need to be certified from the FCC.
Users of these products in the United States can use or operate our products without any permission from the FCC.
In order to market and sell our integrated wireless solutions in the EU, we have also used unlicensed radio spectrum and obtained the required European standards (EN)certifications.
In addition, some of our businesses use substances prescribed by various federal, state and local laws governing the health and safety of the environment and workers, including laws governing the discharge of pollutants to the ground, air and water, management and disposal of hazardous substances and wastes and cleaning of contaminated sites.
Some of our products are subject to various federal, state and local laws governing chemicals in electronic products.
