BigBand S-1

We develop, market and sell network-based platforms that enable cable operators and telephone companies, collectively called service providers, to offer video, voice and data services across coaxial, fiber and copper networks. We have significant expertise in rich media processing, communications networking and bandwidth management. We have delivered what we believe to be the only successful commercial deployments of switched broadcast, an application that substantially increases the volume of content that a service provider can offer. In addition, we were the first to implement what we believe has become the industry’s de facto network architecture for digital simulcast, an application that facilitates the insertion of advertising and the transmission of video in a digital format across a network while still providing service to analog subscribers. Our product applications of Digital Simulcast, TelcoTV, Switched Broadcast, and High-Speed Data and Voice-over-IP are a combination of our modular software and programmable video and data hardware platforms.

Our software and hardware product applications are used by leading service providers worldwide to offer video, voice and data services to tens of millions of subscribers, 24 hours a day, seven days a week. We have sold our product applications to more than 100 customers globally, including Cablevision, Charter, Comcast, Cox, Time Warner Cable and Verizon, which are six of the ten largest service providers in the United States. Our net revenues increased 80.3% to $176.6 million for the year ended December 31, 2006 from $98.0 million in 2005. We have been profitable on a quarterly basis since the three months ended September 30, 2006, and we first achieved profitability on an annual basis in 2006.
