Polaris Networks was started in 2003 by a group of former Agilent Technologies employees with a focus on Networking Protocol Software in general and Wireless Protocol Test Tools in particular. Since then, Polaris Networks has developed a wide range of test tools and communication gateways that are actively used by Network Equipment Manufacturers, Service Providers and Test Labs throughout the world. A member of several industry organizations in the communications arena, Polaris has gained a reputation for promoting the adoption of new technologies such as WiFi, WiMAX, RFID and LTE, from the draft specification stage to deployment.
Polaris is based in Massachusetts and sources R&D services from a dedicated service provider in Kolkata, India. This allows Polaris to make full use of the high-quality and cost-effective engineering resources available in India. Currently, the development center has over 80 employees in two offices owned by the company that provide over 12,000 square feet of office space.
Our mission is to enable people to communicate in a better manner. We do this by helping the adoption of new communication technologies. We develop tools to validate that communication equipment conforms to standards, inter-operates with products from other vendors and can handle real-world loads and scenarios before it is deployed. Our carrier-grade solutions help network operators drive down the cost of service deployment in key market segments, thus improving their bottomline.
We complement our product offerings by providing professional engineering services. We have worked with a number of network equipment manufacturers, silicon providers and T&M vendors, acting as an extension of their R&D team, providing them our software intellectual property and product development and testing services.
