GuruFocus Profitability Rank ranks how profitable a company is and how likely the company’s business will stay that way. It is based on these factors:

1. Operating Margin
2. Trend of the Operating Margin (5-year average). The company with an uptrend profit margin has a higher rank.
••3. Consistency of the profitability
4. Piotroski F-Score
5. Predictability Rank•

The maximum rank is 10. A rank of 7 or higher means a higher profitability and may stay that way. A rank of 3 or lower indicates that the company has had trouble to make a profit.

Profitability Rank is not directly related to the Financial Strength Rank. But if a company is consistently profitable, its financial strength will be stronger.

Business Description

Industry: Communication Equipment » Communication Equipment
Compare:PTFRY, QCOM, CSCO, ERIC, NOK » details
Sycamore Networks Inc was incorporated under the laws of the State of Delaware on February 17, 1998. The Company develops and markets Intelligent Bandwidth Management solutions for fixed line and mobile network operators worldwide and provides services associated with such products. Its current and prospective customers include domestic and international wire line and wireless network service providers, utility companies, large enterprises, multiple systems operators and government entities. The Company's portfolio of optical switches, multiservice cross-connects and multiservice access platforms serve applications that extend across the network infrastructure, from multiservice access and regional backhaul to the optical core. Its products enable network operators to efficiently and cost-effectively provision and manage network capacity to support a range of converged services such as voice, video and data. Its products mainly serve two market areas within the networking industry—bandwidth management and mobile broadband optimization. Its Intelligent Bandwidth Management products include optical switches, multiservice cross-connects, multiservice access platforms and associated network management software. These products support a variety of bandwidth management functions including grooming, access concentration and circuit provisioning. Its IQstream Mobile Broadband Optimization solution is designed to help operators address the service challenges posed by rapid mobile data growth in the high-cost access network by reducing the traffic traversing the backhaul. IQstream reduces congestion caused by increased demand for bandwidth-intensive content such as Internet video. IQstream is designed to provide the following benefits: enhanced delivery of rich media content, particularly video; improved quality of experience for mobile subscribers during peak usage periods; and reduced capital and operational costs. The IQstream solution utilizes a suite of unique data optimization algorithms and techniques collectively referred to as Adaptive Content Optimization. These optimization algorithms and techniques dynamically adapt to changing traffic patterns. The Company's competitors in the optical switching space include large incumbent suppliers of network infrastructure equipment and optical networking equipment such as Alcatel-Lucent, Ciena, Cisco Systems, Ericsson, Fujitsu, Huawei Technologies, Nokia Siemens Networks, Tellabs and ZTE. Competition in the multiservice access space is equally intense, with a fragmented group of suppliers that includes Alcatel-Lucent, Adtran and Tellabs. The Company might be subjected to various state, federal and international laws and regulations governing the environment, including those restricting the presence of certain substances in electronic products.
