Business description: Terayon delivers the primary source of broadband access innovation for operators and broadcasters dedicated to making access more intelligent than the network. Why? Because access needs to not only deliver the speed and connections of broadband, but more importantly the richness of broadband-enabled services like video on demand, voice over the internet and peer-to-peer gaming with the ability to treat each request for service as a unique, manageable transaction. Terayon transforms broadband into Rich-band. Terayon's track record of innovation—as the inventors of S-CDMA and video re-multiplexing technology, the first to deliver a DOCSIS 2.0-qualified CMTS and the first to perform HDTV rate shaping—makes us the only company dedicated to the success of broadband providers and broadcasters through new services.
