Sycamore Networks, Inc. develops and markets intelligent bandwidth management solutions for fixed line and mobile network operators, and provides services associated with such products. The company also develops and markets a mobile broadband optimization solution designed to help mobile operators reduce congestion in mobile access networks. Products and Services Intelligent Bandwidth Management The company’s intelligent bandwidth management products include optical switches, multiservice cross-connects, multiservice access platforms, and associated network management software. These products support various bandwidth management functions, including grooming, access concentration, and circuit provisioning. The company’s SN 16000 and SN 9000 optical switches enable bandwidth management in regional and core networks. These products share the same optical signaling, routing, and management software to support service delivery and resilient protection options from the network edge to the optical core. Its SILVX network management system provides performance management and provisioning capabilities for its optical switching platforms. The company’s DNX cross-connect platforms for traffic aggregation and grooming handle narrowband to broadband switching and transport, and are architected for resiliency and modular growth. ENvision Plus network management software provides provisioning, path protection, and disaster recovery. The company’s SPS-1000 signal processing system adds flexibility to DNX-based access networks, and supports voice and data conferencing at end-user sites and in telemetry applications. Deployed at mobile base stations, the company’s DNX-1u access gateway simplifies RAN backhaul transport, with integrated telemetry and remote IP management features to improve site visibility and control. Mobile Broadband Optimization The company’s IQstream Mobile Broadband Optimization solution is designed to help operators address the service requirements posed by mobile data growth in the access network by reducing the traffic traversing the backhaul. IQstream reduces congestion caused by increased demand for bandwidth-intensive content, such as Internet video. The IQstream solution utilizes a suite of data optimization algorithms and techniques collectively referred to as Adaptive Content Optimization. These optimization algorithms and techniques adapt to changing traffic patterns. The IQstream Adaptive Content Optimization software, which runs on standards-based processing platforms that reside at mobile base stations and traffic aggregation hubs, optimizes the transport of mobile data across the backhaul network, allowing mobile operators to absorb peak usage demand and mitigate service-impacting congestion. Services The company’s product offerings also include a portfolio of post-sales customer support services, such as network planning and deployment, logistics, product training, software updates, online technical assistance, and maintenance contracts.
