ATLANTA -- Supercomm 2001 -- CoSine Communications Inc. (Nasdaq: COSN), a leading provider of network-based IP service delivery platforms, today introduced a powerful and scalable extension to its product family -- the IPSX 9500(TM) Service Processing Switch equipped with the Scalable High-rate Architecture for Routing and Computing (SHARC(TM)) Service Generators. This combined solution is the first in the industry to offer Service Providers the ability to deliver a new portfolio of revenue-generating IP services that scale to the speed of light. The IPSX 9500 is a 26-slot, carrier-class solution that marries switching, routing and computing resources with an open software system, the IP Network Operating System (IPNOS(TM)). The SHARC Service Generator is a self-contained subsystem that occupies two Universal slots in the IPSX 9500 chassis. Together, this solution provides unprecedented processing capabilities designed to match the capacity of Service Providers' edge transport build outs. With the IPSX 9500/SHARC solution, Service Providers can bundle network-based, value-added services seamlessly with their high-speed access services. "As the company that pioneered the network-based IP services market, we have focused our engineering talent and resources all along on evolving the technology and our product line to the next level," said Dean Hamilton, chief executive officer and chairman at CoSine. "By marrying hardware-based forwarding and high-end computing techniques, our SHARC technology has allowed CoSine to create a solution that takes scalability to new heights. We have combined CoSine-originated technology with industry-leading CPUs and accelerators to equip Service Providers with an unprecedented level of service processing scalability. Service Providers need this scalability to deliver an ever-expanding suite of IP services to more and more subscriber networks." CoSine Communications Inc.
