SYCAMORE CAPTURES LEAD IN EUROPEAN METRO DWDM MARKET.

Sycamore Networks (NASDAQ: SCMR), Chelmsford, Mass., a leader in intelligent optical networking, has announced that according to the recent report, "European DWDM: Optical Networks," from RHK Inc., the company's metro solutions have achieved number one market share in the European Metro DWDM market. According to the report, in calendar year 2000, Sycamore secured 32 percent market share of the market for DWDM metro equipment.

"Sycamore has clearly demonstrated strength in the European market, going from ground zero in our 1999 research to capture the number one position in the European Metro DWDM market for the year 2000," said Stephane Teral, director of RHK's Optical Transport, EMEA and Undersea research. "With strong telecom economics in Europe right now, carriers will continue to demand flexible and scalable solutions like Sycamore's metro platforms that address global network builds and expansion plans."

RHK conducted research with numerous service providers operating networks all over Europe that included the 15 member states, and the Czech Republic, Hungary, Norway, Poland and Switzerland. Results showed that the incumbent PTTs, CLECs, OLOs and city carriers are all working on continued network expansions and that large traffic volumes brought on by new subscribers or additional Internet usage continue to fuel the need for increased bandwidth.

"We are very pleased to have generated as much traction in Europe for our metro platforms since first moving aggressively into this market early last year," said John Owen, managing director for EMEA for Sycamore Networks. "Over the last year, our service provider customers have begun using our metro solutions to rapidly expand their network footprints, extend their service capabilities and enhance their overall time to revenue on new service offerings."

Sycamore's advanced optical metro portfolio combines the flexibility of switching and the efficiency of high capacity transport to enable service providers to cost-effectively deliver and manage services in the metropolitan environment. Sycamore's metro product family, which includes metro core transport, access and edge switching, is fully compatible with existing SONET/SDH networks.

Sycamore's metro product family supports service interfaces from DS-3/E3 through OC-192/STM-64, as well as Gigabit Ethernet and is controlled by SILVX(TM), Sycamore's network management system. Sycamore's metropolitan product portfolio seamlessly extends the Intelligent Optical Network from the core to the edge of the network.
