our Tier 1 customers cost-efficiently aggregate and transport diverse voice
and data services as their access and metro networks evolve.”

“Marlin Equity Partners is fully committed to making the strategic investments
necessary to deliver enhanced value to Sycamore’s Tier 1 customer base,” said

role that OSMINE compliance plays in the evolution of incumbent operators’
