Aug. 2, 2001--Sycamore Networks, a provider of intelligent optical networking, announced its quality management process has achieved ISO 9001:2000 registration.

Sycamore Networks (NASDAQ: SCMR), a provider of intelligent optical networking, announced its quality management process has achieved ISO 9001:2000 registration.

To achieve ISO 9001:2000 registration, companies must meet and demonstrate eight quality management principles: customer-focused organization, leadership, involvement of people, process approach, systems approach to management, continual improvement, factual approach to decision making and mutually beneficial supplier relationships.

Sycamore achieved registration from QMI, a division of CSA International, in accordance with the new ISO 9001:2000 quality standards. Sycamore Networks claims to be one of only a few companies in the optical networking market to achieve this new registration standard.
