Item 1.01 Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.

On October 3, 2006, our Compensation Committee determined to increase the annual salary of Patrick D. O'Brien, our Vice President, President, Global Connectivity Services to $310,000. This action was taken in connection with the assumption of significant additional responsibilities by Mr. O'Brien as part of an internal organizational restructuring.

Item 5.02 Departure of Directors or Principal Officers; Election of Directors; Appointment of Principal Officers.

5.02 (b) - Two members of our Board of Directors, James C. Castle Ph.D. and Jean-Pierre Rosso, plan to retire from the Board at the time of our 2007 annual meeting of shareowners. This meeting is currently expected to be held in March 2007. Neither director is leaving as a result of any disagreement with management or with the Board or because of any matter relating to our operations. In August 2004 we announced that the size of our Board was being temporarily expanded because we expected some of our long-standing directors to retire and we wanted to facilitate an orderly transition.

Dr. Castle will be retiring after 13 years of service on our Board. Dr. Castle's pending retirement is in accordance with our Principles of Corporate Governance which provide that a director must retire from our Board at the time of the next annual meeting of shareholders after reaching the age of 70.

On October 3, 2006, our Board was informed that Mr. Rosso intends to retire after 14 years of service on our Board. Mr. Rosso is retiring due to other personal and professional commitments.
