WooshCom’s first proprietary products were a line of innovative MPEG-2 Interface Adapters. These adapters were industry game-changers in that their size, power requirements and cost were an order of magnitude less than existing products in the market. They quickly vanquished existing competing products in the market and went on to not only achieve 98% market share but also redefine the market by opening the possibility of applications that were previously considered unfeasible. Innovative dual encryption approaches such as Cisco’s Overlay was made possible by virtue of WooshCom’s products.
These adapters were then followed by more innovative products bridging the gap between legacy equipment in today’s Cable TV headends and Telco central offices and the IP wave of the future by solving real-life issues. WooshCom’s current focus is on practical products aimed at paving the way to a less-painful transition to an all IP future – products which shrink equipment in the headend, allow existing devices to be re-used, and leverage cutting edge technology to reduce rack space and drastically drop power requirements.
