Since our beginnings, multinational
corporations such as Cabletron Systems Inc. have granted us substantial
R&D contracts to resolve difficult, mission-critical, technical
problems. This has propelled our efforts toward the research and
development of high speed LAN products operating through unshielded
twisted pair telephone cable.
We always strive to improve on our excellent track record with
our customers. Our efforts have resulted in many innovative solutions.
After recognizing the high commercial potential of our solutions,
one customer requested two international patents having as sole
inventor a member of our staff, one of which was granted in 1994.
In cooperation with our customers, we have published results with
the ISO (International Standardization Organization) as well as with
the IEEE (Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers) committees.
Our results have had a significant impact on the content of international
standards. The reputation of our company has grown in a sustained
fashion which now reaches out to the EEC (Economic European Community).
France Telecom has granted us technical support contracts for the
standardization of the 120 ohm cabling system. With our concerted
efforts, we steered the ISO 8802.5 / IEEE 802.5 Token Ring International
Committee to vote and approve an inclusion of the 120 ohm cabling
system in the standards.
Since then, AmeriSys personnel has been instrumental in the formation of
the ISO 802.13 committee which indirectly has brought the world devices
that are now known as cable modems. AmeriSys personnel was also part of
the founding members of the ISO 802.15 - Personal Area Networks. The most
recent contribution of AmeriSys personnel has been as founding members of
the ISO802.22 - Regional Area Networks which, much like cable modems
and DSL, will bring high speed internet access to rural areas across the
Today, AmeriSys personnel sits on the 802 architecture committee, comprised of a select group of worldwide renowned networking experts, that is reviewing
the overall architecture and preparing the foundations of the current and next generation networks that serve our everyday lives.
