Aricent's Broad Daylight Program Offers Design Expertise

Aricent introduced its Broad Daylight product development program created specifically for small and mid-sized telecommunications equipment manufacturers to hasten their entry into new telecom equipment markets such as LTE, Home Networking, Data Center Ethernet and Cloud Computing.

Aricent's Broad DayLight offers technology consulting, product design, pre-packaged software frameworks and product development services for equipment manufacturers. The company noted that design activity has picked up across the industry this year as the economic situation has improved and network traffic demands have continued to accelerate. New product categories are emerging across the telecom equipment market and manufacturers are in a race to exploit these opportunities. Aricent believes its Broad DayLight program provides a strategic advantage in time-to-market and technical expertise.

Some of the key product categories that Aricent has helped develop include femtocells, WiMAX and LTE base stations, next generation metro network development, IP Backhaul, solutions, green networks and micro telecom.

"Thousands of companies today are pursuing the global surge in telecom equipment spending being driven by multimedia services, new classes of connected devices and mobile broadband," said Keith Higgins, senior vice president of marketing at Aricent. "Extreme cost pressures, rigid time to market objectives and significant technology complexities have created a clear need for an experienced partner who can assist these companies from product concept to commercialization success. Aricent is the first company to address this underserved market in a fundamentally unique way."
