Terayon Communication Systems Inc. wants to help cable operators tap the corporate market.

The vendor Tuesday introduced its “FLEXable Commercial Services” solution, which, it said, “allows operators to offer commercial-grade voice and data services that work seamlessly with corporations' existing internal networks and back-office infrastructure.”

As part of its effort, Terayon reached an original-equipment-manufacturer agreement with Axerra Networks Inc.

The two companies will combine Terayon's “BW 3000” Data Over Cable Service Interface Specification 2.0 cable-modem-termination system and Axerra's “AXN” multiservice packet concentrators and access devices, which Terayon has branded as its “BWx” line.

“The Terayon FLEXable Commercial Services solution empowers cable operators to compete with telecom carriers in the demanding corporate market for commercial services by providing the same versatile portfolio of services," Terayon CMTS group vice president and general manager Kishore Manghnani said in a prepared statement.

“Our FLEXable Commercial Services solution works in operators' existing DOCSIS networks and positions them to immediately capture more of the lucrative corporate market and to realize a fast return on their investment,” he added.
