STOCKHOLM—12 July 2001— Dynarc, a Swedish-based pioneer of optical IP ring technology, today announced full availability of Dynarc 5116 and Dynarc 1124 auto-provisioning routers for high-end IP services, backed by an investment of $70million in developing manufacturing and customer support capabilities as part of its global operations.

The product availability represents the third stage of Dynarc’s business strategy, having spent two years progressing from initial technical development to extensive trials with service providers. An $18million contract with Song Networks (formerly Tele1 Europe) to link major Nordic cities with fully resilient and enhanced high-speed services coincides with Dynarc’s transition to full product availability.

Dynarc’s carrier solution, based on the fundamental building blocks of the emerging Resilient Packet Ring technology, are a cost-effective and versatile alternative to the legacy network solutions based on ATM and SDH. By bringing the resiliency and reliability of SDH rings to a packet-optimised world, Dynarc addresses the requirements of Metropolitan Area Networks (MANs).

Dynarc will predominantly target its solutions at service providers and telcos, through a select network of channel partners. The partner program span from niche VARs that focus on specific customer segments to distributors with Pan-European reach.

Dynarc Director of Marketing, Per Lembre, said the company’s key markets for the next stage of its development were the UK, US and Scandinavia: “Our opportunity is to improve and simplify network infrastructures for quick provisioning of a new breed of IP services,” he said.

Camille Mendler, Director of the Yankee Group’s European Fixed Telecoms Research Group, said, "Service Providers cannot compete in today's competitive market without the fundamental, yet surprisingly scarce, ability to provision and deploy operationally efficient, secure, high-performance, high-speed services swiftly."

Lembre concluded, “The Dynarc 5116 router provides these capabilities without sacrificing standards. The second stage of our strategy saw Dynarc working closely with an early group of customers to improve the technology and help those customers to ready themselves for the coming of broadband IP applications delivered over optical networks in metropolitan areas. Now we are taking the technology to a global stage to drive through quick provisioning.”

As part of this strategy, Dynarc recently relocated its US operational headquarters to a large facility in San Jose, California, which will enable it to scale up to meet product shipment requirements.
