Who is BDCOM and what are their products used for?
BDCOM is a top-tier networking manufacturer that specialises in core networking and last-mile communication products. BDCOMs products include copper and fibre network switches, Ethernet Passive Optical Network (EPON) and Gigabit Passive Optical Network (GPON) solutions, routers and network security devices. BDCOM is world-renowned for offering best-of-breed IP networking products at a very affordable price point and pride themselves in having the lowest product failure rate amongst industry peers. BDCOM fibre network technology is widely used by Internet Service Providers (ISPs) across the globe and their sole focus is to keep their production costs down without compromising on product quality and reliability. BDCOM is a true disruptor in the fibre industry and is made readily available in Southern Africa by MiRO South Africa.
History of BDCOM
BDCOM was founded in 1994 and is now one of China’s greatest networking equipment manufacturers. After surviving the tumultuous dotcom burst, BDCOM was the first to release a commercialised router to the Chinese home market. A head start they would inevitably take advantage of and never lose. An advantage that would enable them to generate enough sales to warrant a 15% return on profit investment into research and development. BDCOM has always wanted to remain innovative and provide the markets they operated in with only the best products. To follow on from this commitment to excellence, BDCOM instituted a product assessment centre that evaluates product development as it goes through its lifecycle, offering critical feedback to perfect the product before its mass-market release.
In the early 2000s, BDCOM introduced their own operating system called BDROS. BDROS is now seen as the gold standard of networking operating systems.
