February 27, 2011 — WideBand Corporation released year end results to shareholders this week. According to the report, sales for last year were up a record 170% over the preceding year. According to company Chairman, Roger Billings, “We are very pleased to see the substantial interest in our new nano-latency network technology. We have a whole new generation of products under development based on the technology which are scheduled to be on the market by the end of 2012. These products will allow a natural expansion program to the next generation of networking technology for our customers.”
The company recently completed Phase I of a research and development project funded by the US Army regarding the nano-latency technology. In conventional networks, the data may travel at nearly the speed of light over networking cables, but when it arrives at the electronic module used to switch it to its destination on the network, it encounters substantial delays usually on the order of 1,000 nanoseconds or greater. The amount of time that it takes for data to pass through each network appliance or switch is referred to as the switch latency. This latency delay is cumulative for every appliance in a particular network resulting in sluggish performance even for very fast, state-of-the-art networking systems.
With the WideBand nano-latency technology, the latency is expected to be less than 25 nano seconds resulting in a very significant overall improvement in system performance. In addition, the WideBand low latency technology is being evaluated for application in experimental parallel processing systems where delays in moving data have a very major impact on overall performance.
WideBand Corporation is a manufacturer of professional networking equipment used for mission critical applications in industry and government. The company was the first to offer a gigabit over copper networking product, and Roger Billings was a steering committee member of the Gigabit Ethernet Alliance and an active contributor to the IEEE committee that issued the gigabit Ethernet standard.
WideBand Corporation is a private company that manufacturers their own products in their Missouri facility near Kansas City. They are one of the few remaining networking products companies to design and manufacture their own equipment in the US. According to WideBand President, Joseph Billings, “We are committed to providing reliable networking solutions to customers. Our customer support is unequaled in the industry, and the fact that we operate 100% debt free including owning all of our own real estate and manufacturing equipment ensures our customers that we will be around to take care of them.”
