CCN: SpellCaster Announces Contract With Cisco

“SpellCaster Telecommunications Inc., a pioneer in the
development of connectivity and remote access technology for the
Linux operating system, announced today that it had received an
order from Cisco Systems Inc of San Jose, California for its
TeleScope ASBA 1027 load simulator. This is a follow-on order of
similar equipment shipped to Cisco in 1999.”

“Stephen B. Taylor, President and COO of SpellCaster said, “This
isa very strong endorsement of both our TeleScope server software
and our hardware. There will continue to be exponential growth in
the number of bandwidth products and offerings in both the copper
and optic fields between the now and the year 2010. Devices that
can accurately simulate real-world loading are necessary for both
Telcos and related equipment suppliers, creating a total annual
market for this type of test equipment that ranges from US $400m to
US $500m from all sources. TeleScope Server and Linux give us the
agility to provide products which address these rapid developments
and position us to capture a significant share of this total
market.”

TeleScope Server is SpellCaster’s Linux derivative server
operating system. TeleScope Server has office server and
connectivity features designed to provide both ease of use and
lower deployment costs in multi-server environments. This operating
system incorporates the robust stability of Linux and a
user-friendly browser based user interface.
