Tazz Networks, a developer of policy management software for IP services, this week announced that it has entered into a global OEM agreement with Cisco.
Cisco will market the Tazz Policy Control System as the Cisco Broadband Policy Manager (BPM), with the initial market focus on the triple play (voice, video, and data) application requirements of telecom service providers. The long-term focus of BPM is to help transition legacy networks to next generation architectures -- 3GPP, IP Multimedia Subsystem and ETSI TISPAN -- that deliver business IP services.
The system, which helps to ensure resource availability and guaranteed quality of service, is immediately available through the Cisco direct sales force.
Tazz was founded in 2001, has 60 employees and has raised US$26 million in three rounds of funding.
