IBM to Align with Narad Networks

6/23/2002 5:05 PM Eastern

IBM is expected to announce a strategic alliance with bandwidth-expansion
tech provider Narad Networks Inc. Monday.

The alliance will yield a joint suite of software, software applications and
infrastructure to deliver high-speed Internet access, information-technology
services and other products -- through cable operators -- to small and midsized

The product suite should be available to operators by midsummer, but at least
one MSO -- which Narad and IBM declined to name -- is already conducting a field
trial of the suite. Narad marketing vice president Chuck Kaplan said the MSO
will use the technology in a business-services rollout that will launch in
August or September.
