                                    ARTICLE 2

                          TRANSITION SERVICE SCHEDULES

        2.1 Services. This Agreement will govern the transitional services as
requested by either Party and provided to such Party by the other Party, the
details of which are set forth in the Transition Service Schedules attached to
this Agreement, or otherwise agreed to in writing by the Parties.

        2.2 Schedules. Each Service shall be covered by this Agreement upon
execution of a Transition Service Schedule in the form attached hereto as
Exhibit A (each transition service



                                      -2-
<PAGE>   6

schedule, a "Transition Service Schedule"). For each Service, the Parties shall
set forth in the Transition Service Schedule, among other things, the time
period during which the Service will be provided if different from the term of
this Agreement determined pursuant to ARTICLE 4 hereof, a summary of the Service
to be provided; a description of the Service; and the estimated charge, if any,
for the Service and any other terms applicable thereto. Notwithstanding the
foregoing the Parties acknowledge and agree that it may not be practicable to
describe each Service in detail and that, therefore, a Service, when generally
agreed upon by the Parties will be provided and paid for in accordance with the
applicable terms of this Agreement even where such Service is not described in
detail in a Schedule.

                                    ARTICLE 3

                                    SERVICES

        3.1 Services Generally. Except as otherwise provided herein, for the
term determined pursuant to ARTICLE 4 hereof, each Party shall provide or cause
to be provided to the other the service(s) described in the Transition Service
Schedule(s) attached hereto. Executed Transition Service Schedules are attached
hereto as Exhibits B-1, B-2, etc. The service(s) described on a single
Transition Service Schedule shall be referred to herein as a "Service."
Collectively, the services described on all the Transition Service Schedules
(including Additional Services) shall be referred to herein as "Services."

        3.2 Service Limitations. Except as provided in a Transition Service
Schedule for a specific Service: (i) neither Party shall be required to provide
the Services except to the extent and only at the locations such Services are
being provided by the business constituting the Party prior to the Separation
Date or the performance of such service requires assets that will be owned by
such Party following the Separation Date; and (ii) the Services will be
available only for purposes of conducting the business of the Receiving Party
substantially in the manner it was conducted, or proposed to be conducted by the
business constituting such Party prior to the Separation Date.

        3.3 Impracticability. Neither Party shall be required to provide any
Service to the extent the performance of such Service becomes "Impracticable" as
a result of a cause or causes outside the reasonable control of such Party
including unfeasible technological requirements, or to the extent the
performance of such Services would require such Party to violate any applicable
laws, rules or regulations or would result in the breach of any confidentiality
or non-disclosure obligations, software license or other applicable contract.

        3.4 Additional Resources. Except as provided in a Transition Service
Schedule for a specific Service, in providing the Services, neither Party shall
be obligated to: (i) hire any additional employees; (ii) maintain the employment
of any specific employee; (iii) purchase, lease or license any additional
equipment or software; (iv) pay any costs related to the transfer or conversion
of the other Party's data; or (v) engage any alternate supplier of Services.
Unless otherwise specified in the relevant Transition Services Schedule,
Providing Party shall not be required to



                                      -3-
<PAGE>   7

purchase or deliver to the Receiving Party additional equipment or materials
required to perform the relevant Service, unless the Receiving Party shall
reimburse the Providing Party for such equipment or materials in accordance
with ARTICLE 5.

        3.5 Additional Services. From time to time after the Effective Date, the
Parties may identify and mutually agree upon additional services that one party
will provide to the other Party in accordance with the terms of this Agreement
(the "Additional Services"). Accordingly, the Parties may execute additional
Transition Service Schedules for such Additional Services pursuant to ARTICLE 2.
Except as set forth in Section 3.6, the Parties may agree in writing on
Additional Services during the term of this Agreement.

        3.6 Obligations As To Additional Services. Except as set forth in the
next sentence, a Party shall perform, at a charge determined using the
principles for determining fees under Section 5.1, any Additional Service that:
(a) was provided by the business constituting such Party immediately prior to
the Separation Date and that was inadvertently or unintentionally omitted from
the list of Services and is based on the use of assets owned by a Party as a
result of the Separation Date, or (b) is essential to effectuate an orderly
transition under the Separation and Distribution Agreement, unless such
performance would significantly disrupt the Providing Party's operations or
materially increase the scope of its responsibility under this Agreement. If
Providing Party reasonably believes the performance of Additional Services
required under subparagraphs (a) or (b) would significantly disrupt its
operations or materially increase the scope of its responsibility under this
Agreement, the Parties shall negotiate in good faith to establish terms under
which such Additional Services may be provided, provided, however, a Providing
Party shall not be obligated to provide such Additional Services if, following
good faith negotiation, the Parties are unable to reach agreement on such terms.

                                    ARTICLE 4

                                      TERM

        The term of this Agreement shall commence on the Effective Date and
shall remain in effect until two (2) years after the Effective Date (the
"Expiration Date"), unless earlier terminated under ARTICLE 7. This Agreement
may be extended by the Parties in writing, either in whole or with respect to
one or more of the Services; provided, however, that such extension shall only
apply to the specific Services for which the Agreement was extended. The Parties
shall be deemed to have extended this Agreement with respect to a specific
Service if the Transition Service Schedule for such Service specifies a
completion date beyond the aforementioned Expiration Date. The Parties may agree
on an earlier expiration date respecting a specific Service by specifying such
date on the Transition Service Schedule for that Service. Services shall be
provided up to and including the date set forth in the applicable Transition
Service Schedule, subject to earlier termination as provided herein.

                                    ARTICLE 5

                                  COMPENSATION



                                      -4-
<PAGE>   8

        5.1 Charges for Services. A Party shall pay to the other Party the
charges, if any, set forth on the Transition Service Schedules for each of the
Services listed therein as adjusted, from time to time, in accordance with the
process and procedures established under Section 5.4 and Section 5.5 hereof.
Such fees shall include the direct costs of providing the Services, as
determined using the process described in such Transition Service Schedule, and
indirect costs of providing the Services plus ten percent (10%), unless
specifically indicated otherwise on a Transition Service Schedule. However, if
the term of this Agreement is extended beyond the Expiration Date as defined in
ARTICLE 4, a Party receiving Services will reimburse the Party proving such
Service such costs plus fifteen percent (15%) for the Services unless the
Transition Service Schedule for such Service indicates it is to extend beyond
the Expiration Date. The Parties also intend for charges to be easy to
administer and justify and, therefore, they hereby acknowledge it may be
counterproductive to try to recover de minimus cost, charge or expense. The
Parties shall use good faith efforts to discuss any situation in which the
actual charge for a Service is reasonably expected to exceed the estimated
charge, if any, set forth on a Transition Service Schedule for a particular
Service; provided, however, that the incurrence of charges in excess of any such
estimate on such Transition Service Schedule shall not justify stopping the
provision of, or payment for, Services under this Agreement.

        5.2 Payment Terms. A Providing Party shall invoice the Receiving Party
monthly for all charges pursuant to this Agreement. Such invoices shall be
accompanied by reasonable documentation or other reasonable explanation
supporting such charges. Invoices shall be due and payable within thirty (30)
days after receipt. Late payments shall bear interest at the lesser of 12% or
the maximum rate allowed by law. A Party owing the greater amount in any payment
period may pay to the other the net amount by which its payment exceeds the
payment due to it for such period.

        5.3 Performance Under Ancillary Agreements. Notwithstanding anything to
the contrary contained herein, neither Party shall be charged under this
Agreement for any obligations that are specifically required to be performed
under the Separation and Distribution Agreement or any other Ancillary Agreement
and any such other obligations shall be performed and charged for (if
applicable) in accordance with the terms of the Separation and Distribution
Agreement or such other Ancillary Agreement.

        5.4 Error Correction; True-Ups; Accounting. The Parties shall reasonably
agree on a process and procedure for conducting internal audits and making
adjustments to charges as a result of the movement of employees and functions
between Parties, the discovery of errors or omissions in charges, as well as a
true-up of amounts owed. In no event shall such processes and procedures extend
beyond 180 days after completion of a Service.

        5.5 Pricing Adjustments. In the event of a tax audit adjustment relating
to the pricing of any or all Services provided pursuant to this Agreement in
which it is determined by a taxing authority that any of the charges,
individually or in combination, did not result in an arm's-length payment, as
determined under internationally accepted arm's-length standards, then the
Parties, including any subcontractor providing Services hereunder, may agree to
make corresponding adjustments to the charges in question for such period to the
extent necessary to achieve arm's-



                                      -5-
<PAGE>   9
length pricing. Any adjustment made pursuant to this Section 5.5 shall be
reflected in the Parties' legal books and records, and the resulting
underpayment or overpayment shall create, respectively, an obligation to be paid
in the manner specified in Section 5.2, or shall create a credit against amounts
owed under this Agreement.

                                    ARTICLE 6

                      GENERAL OBLIGATIONS; STANDARD OF CARE

        6.1 Performance Metrics. Subject to Sections 3.3 and 3.4 and any other
terms and conditions of this Agreement, each Party shall maintain sufficient
resources to perform its obligations hereunder. Specific performance metrics for
a specific Service may be set forth in the corresponding Transition Service
Schedule. Where none is set forth, a Providing Party shall use reasonable
efforts to provide Services in accordance with the policies, procedures and
practices in effect before the Separation Date and shall exercise the same care
and skill as it exercises in performing similar services for itself. The
Receiving Party shall provide sufficient resources and timely decisions,
approvals and acceptances in order that the Providing Party may accomplish its
obligations hereunder in a timely manner.

        6.2 Disclaimer Of Warranties. NEITHER PARTY MAKES ANY WARRANTIES,
EXPRESS, IMPLIED OR STATUTORY, INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO THE IMPLIED
WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY, BUSINESS CONTINUITY OR FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR
PURPOSE, WITH RESPECT TO THE SERVICES, SOFTWARE OR OTHER DELIVERABLES WHICH MAY
BE PROVIDED BY IT HEREUNDER.

        6.3 Transitional Nature Of Services; Changes. The Parties acknowledge
the transitional nature of the Services and that the Providing Party may make
changes from time to time in the manner of performing such Services if such
Party is making similar changes in performing similar services for itself
provided that the Providing Party furnishes to the Receiving Party reasonable
advanced written notice regarding such changes.

        6.4 Responsibility For Errors; Delays. The Providing Party's sole
responsibility to the Receiving Party with respect to Services are as follows:

        (a)    for errors or omissions in Services, shall be to furnish correct
               information, payment and/or adjustment in the Services, at no
               additional cost or expense; provided, the Receiving Party must
               promptly advise the Providing Party of any such error or omission
               of which it becomes aware after having used reasonable efforts to
               detect any such errors or omissions in accordance with the
               standard of care set forth in Section 6.1; and

        (b)    for failure to deliver any Service because of Impracticability,
               shall be to use reasonable efforts, subject to Section 3.3, to
               make the Services available and/or to resume performing the
               Services as promptly as reasonably practicable.



                                      -6-
<PAGE>   10

        6.5 Good Faith Cooperation; Consents. The Parties will use good faith
efforts to cooperate with each other in all matters relating to the provision
and receipt of Services. Such cooperation shall include exchanging information,
performing true-ups and adjustments, and obtaining all third party consents,
licenses, sublicenses or approvals necessary to permit each Party to perform its
obligations hereunder (including, rights to use third party software needed for
the performance of Services). Unless otherwise provided in the relevant
Transition Services Schedule, the costs of obtaining such third party consents,
licenses, sublicenses or approvals shall be borne by the Receiving Party for the
relevant Services. The Parties will maintain in accordance with their standard
document retention procedures, documentation supporting the information relevant
to cost calculations contained in the Transition Service Schedules and cooperate
with each other in making such information available as needed in the event of a
tax audit, whether in the United States or any other country.

        6.6 Alternatives. If a Party reasonably believes it is unable to provide
a Service because of a failure to obtain necessary consents, licenses,
sublicenses or approvals pursuant to Section 6.5 or because of Impracticability,
the Parties shall cooperate to determine the best alternative approach. Until
such alternative approach is found or the problem otherwise resolved to the
satisfaction of the Parties, the Providing Party shall use reasonable efforts,
subject to Section 3.3 and Section 3.4, to continue providing the Service. To
the extent an agreed upon alternative approach requires payment above and beyond
that which is included in the Providing Party's charge for the Service in
question, the Parties shall share equally in making any such payment unless they
otherwise agree in writing.

                                    ARTICLE 7

                                   TERMINATION

        7.1 Termination. A Receiving Party may terminate this Agreement, either
with respect to all or with respect to any one or more of the Services provided
to it hereunder, for any reason or for no reason, at any time upon sixty (60)
days prior written notice to the Providing Party. In addition, subject to the
provisions of ARTICLE 15, either Party may terminate this Agreement with respect
to a specific Service if the other Party materially breaches a material
provision with regard to that particular Service and does not cure such breach
(or does not take reasonable steps required under the circumstances to cure such
breach going forward) within sixty (60) days after being given written notice of
such breach; provided, however, that the Party against whom the breach is
alleged may request that the Parties engage in a dispute resolution negotiation
as specified in ARTICLE 15 below prior to termination for breach.

        7.2 Survival. Those Sections of this Agreement that, by their nature,
are intended to survive termination will survive in accordance with their terms.
Notwithstanding the foregoing, in the event of any termination with respect to
one or more, but less than all Services, this Agreement shall continue in full
force and effect with respect to any Services not terminated hereby.

<PAGE>   11

        7.3 User IDs, Passwords. The Parties shall use good faith efforts at the

Agreement without the consent of the Receiving Party; provided further, that any
such subcontractor agrees in writing to be bound by confidentiality obligations
at least as protective as the terms of this Agreement regarding confidentiality,
and provided further that the Providing Party remains responsible for the
performance of such subcontractor. As used in this Agreement, "subcontractor"
will mean any individual, partnership, corporation, firm, association,
unincorporated organization, joint venture, trust or other entity engaged to

other computer code (a "Software Deliverable") as indicated in a Transition

Agreement, the Providing Party hereby grants to the Receiving Party, under the
Providing Party's intellectual property rights in and to a Software Deliverable,

Software Deliverable in object code only for its own internal information
processing services and computing needs, and to make sufficient copies as
necessary for such use, and (b) use the Documentation in connection with the
permitted use of the Software Deliverable and make sufficient copies as

relevant Service, and (ii) expire and terminate upon the termination of the
relevant Service term.

Deliverable on a "service bureau" basis; or (f) provide, disclose, divulge or

        Each party will be excused for any failure or delay in performing any of
its obligations under this Agreement, other than the obligations to make
payments pursuant to ARTICLE 5 hereof for services rendered, if such failure or
delay is caused by any act of God or the public enemy, any accident, explosion,
fire, storm, earthquake, flood, or any other circumstance or event beyond the
reasonable control of such party.

                                   ARTICLE 15

        15.1 Use Of Dispute Resolution. Except as otherwise set forth in the

connection with this Agreement, whether based on contract, tort, or otherwise
(collectively, "Disputes"), shall be exclusively governed by and settled in
accordance with the provisions of this Article 15.



                                      -10-
<PAGE>   14

        15.2 Negotiation. The Parties shall make a good faith attempt to resolve
any Dispute arising out of or relating to this Agreement through negotiation.
Within thirty (30) days after notice of a Dispute is given by either Party to
the other Party, each Party shall select a negotiating team comprised of vice
president level employees of such party and shall meet within thirty (30) days
after the end of the first thirty (30) day negotiating period to attempt to
resolve the matter. During the course of negotiations under this Section 15.2,
all reasonable requests made by one Party to the other for information,
including requests for copies of relevant documents, will be honored. The
specific format for such negotiations will be left to the discretion of the
designated negotiating teams but may include the preparation of agreed upon
statements of fact or written statements of position furnished to the other
Party.

        15.3 Non-Binding Mediation. In the event that any Dispute arising out of
or related to this Agreement is not settled by the Parties within fifteen (15)
days after the first meeting of the negotiating teams under Section 15.2, the
Parties will attempt in good faith to resolve such Dispute by non-binding
mediation in accordance with the American Arbitration Association Commercial
Mediation Rules. The mediation shall be held within thirty (30) days of the end
of such fifteen (15) day negotiation period of the negotiating teams. Except as
provided below in Section 15.4, no litigation for the resolution of such dispute
may be commenced until the parties try in good faith to settle the dispute by
such mediation in accordance with such rules and either Party has concluded in
good faith that amicable resolution through continued mediation of the matter
does not appear likely. The costs of mediation shall be shared equally by the
Parties to the mediation. Any settlement reached by mediation shall be recorded
in writing, signed by the Parties, and shall be binding on them.

        15.4 Proceedings. Nothing herein, however, shall prohibit either Party
from initiating litigation or other judicial or administrative proceedings if
such Party would be substantially harmed by a failure to act during the time
that such good faith efforts are being made to resolve the Dispute through
negotiation or mediation. In the event that litigation is commenced under this
Section 15.4, the Parties agree to continue to attempt to resolve any Dispute
according to the terms of Sections 15.2 and 15.3 during the course of such
litigation proceedings under this Section 15.4.

        15.5 Pay And Dispute. Except as provided herein or in any Ancillary
Agreement, in the event of any dispute regarding payment of a third-party
invoice (subject to standard verification of receipt of products or services),
the party named in a third party's invoice must make timely payment to such
third party, even if the party named in the invoice desires to pursue the
dispute resolution procedures outlined in this Section 15.1. If the Party that
paid the invoice is found pursuant to this Section 15.1 to not be responsible
for such payment, such paying party shall be entitled to reimbursement, with
interest accrued in accordance with Section 5.2.

        15.6 Continuity Of Service And Performance. Unless otherwise agreed in
writing, the parties will continue to provide service and honor all other
commitments under this Agreement and each Ancillary Agreement during the course
of dispute resolution pursuant to the provisions of this ARTICLE 15 with respect
to all matters not subject to such dispute, controversy or claim.

        16.1 Entire Agreement. This Agreement, the Merger Agreement, the other
Ancillary Agreements and the Exhibits and Schedules referenced or attached

oral and all contemporaneous oral agreements and understandings with respect to
the subject matter hereof.

        16.2 Governing Law. This Agreement shall be governed and construed and
enforced in accordance with the laws of the State of Delaware as to all matters

benefit of and be binding upon the Parties hereto and their respective legal
representatives and successors, and nothing in this Agreement, express or

the Parties acknowledge and agree that in connection with the Merger, this
Agreement shall be assigned to and assumed by Harmonic.

        16.6 Severability. If any term or other provision of this Agreement or
the Schedules or Exhibits attached hereto is determined by a non-appealable
decision by a court, administrative agency or arbitrator to be invalid, illegal
or incapable of being enforced by any rule of law or public policy, all other
conditions and provisions of this Agreement shall nevertheless remain in full
force and effect so long as the economic or legal substance of the transactions
contemplated hereby is not affected in any manner materially adverse to either
Party. Upon such determination that any term or other provision is invalid,
illegal or incapable of being enforced, the Parties hereto shall negotiate in
good faith to modify this Agreement so as to effect the original intent of the
Parties as closely as possible in an acceptable manner to the end that
transactions contemplated hereby are fulfilled to the fullest extent possible.

        16.7 Failure Or Indulgence Not Waiver; Remedies Cumulative. No failure
or delay on the part of either Party hereto in the exercise of any right
hereunder shall impair such right or be construed to be a waiver of, or
acquiescence in, any breach of any representation, warranty or agreement herein,
nor shall any single or partial exercise of any such right preclude other or
further exercise thereof or of any other right. All rights and remedies existing
under this Agreement or the Schedules or Exhibits attached hereto are cumulative

Agreement and any Ancillary Agreement or other agreement executed in connection
