REDWOOD CITY, Calif. -- Anagran, Inc., an early stage company in the process of developing a next generation Customer Premises Equipment (“CPE”) IP Router, today announced it has received $8.0 million in first round venture financing. Participating in the round were ArrowPath Venture Capital, Draper Fisher Jurvetson and Argon Capital.

Anagran, Inc. is developing an innovative, cost effective, fast, QoS capable, IPv4/IPv6 router for the Customer Premise Equipment (“CPE”) market. The QoS capability is achieved by the management of all flows with flow-state technology allowing equalized load balancing among users, rapid TCP rate feedback and guaranteed rate, loss, and delay flows for voice and video. This type of flow management is becoming increasingly necessary in broadband networks to achieve high quality voice and video and other traffic between all end users.

“This new flow-state approach to IP routing represents the first significant quality improvement and cost reduction in IP since its inception. It is truly the second generation of IP, not only in including IPv6 with QoS signaling, but in greatly simplifying the size and cost of IP routing” said Dr. Lawrence Roberts, Co-Founder, President and CEO of Anagran.

“We funded Anagran, because we believe that, with the proliferation of broadband and wireless technologies, there is an increasing demand for TDM/ATM level QoS for voice and video and high throughput TCP” said Dan Brown, Venture Partner at ArrowPath Venture Capital. “Anagran’s unique technology will support applications with stringent delay and loss requirements, provide critical accounting information to network managers and allow fairness of broadband access utilization by different users. We see Anagran as a strong opportunity for bringing significant change to the telecommunications industry.”
