Background

Polaris Networks was started in 2003 by a group of former Agilent Technologies employees, with a focus on Networking Protocol Software, particularly Wireless Protocol Test Tools. 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 across the world. As 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 right from the draft specification 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. The development center currently has over 80 employees in two offices owned by the company, which jointly cover over 12,000 square feet of office space.

Objectives

Our mission is to enable people to communicate better, and we achieve this by encouraging the adoption of new communication technologies. We develop tools that test whether communication equipment conforms to necessary 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 reduce the cost of service deployment in key market segments, thus improving their bottom line.

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 to provide them with our software's intellectual property, product development, and testing services.
