OnStream Networks was a Santa Clara, California-based supplier of Circuit Emulation Service (CES) based Asynchronous Transfer Mode (ATM) solutions. It was formerly T3Plus.

The company developed and manufactured ATM Multiplexers. CPE interfaces consisted of CES, Frame Relay, V.35, HSSI, Ethernet, and Optical Interfaces.
