Trident7 Technology Acquisition Accelerates Aurora Networks' Cable Architecture Evolution Strategy
SANTA CLARA, Calif. --(Business Wire)--
Aurora Networks, Inc., the No. 1 optical transport solutions provider
for cable operators, announces today the acquisition of Trident7™
technology from Enablence Technologies. The acquisition demonstrates
Aurora Networks' continued commitment to the cable industry as operators
continue to plan their ultimate migration to an all-IP environment.
By expanding its PON offerings and armed with its Node PON™ technology,
Aurora Networks has strengthened its end-to-end PON solutions to help
operators cost-effectively deliver all optical IP Ethernet-based
services to both residential and commercial customers.
With an all-encompassing PON chassis, Aurora Networks now has improved
capabilities to support both current and future network requirements.
The company offers a universal PON portfolio that includes compelling
solutions in EPON, GPON, and point-to-point Ethernet. In addition,
Aurora Networks now supports a wider range of optical network terminal
(ONT) solutions including outdoor and indoor-based solutions, embedded
residential gateway and wireless offerings.
Aurora Networks' Trident7 PON solution enhances its capability to
deliver the right technology for emerging services such as IP video, OTT
(Over-The-Top) video, and commercial services. The Trident7 chassis
rovides key aggregation and management functions including DPoE (DOCSIS
Provisioning of EPON) of both Node- and chassis-based PON deployments.
Further, the platform will extend this capability to additional
Node-based solutions such as BitCoax™, Aurora Networks'
Ethernet-over-Coax solution to support Gigabit data rates over existing
HFC networks' coaxial drops.
What Aurora Networks Says
"Acquiring the Trident7 product family from Enablence is very
complementary with Aurora Networks' strategic vision of network
evolution. It will enable us to further integrate technologies which
operators will need to continue the evolution of their networks," said
Guy Sucharczuk, chairman, president and CEO of Aurora Networks. "This
acquisition will provide an additional tool for operators to meet the
ever-growing demand for capacity-per-subscriber."
Achieving 21 consecutive quarters of profitability, the company has been
actively on the acquisition trail since it brought on Scott Weinstein as
vice president of new business development, in October 2010. GoBack TV
was Aurora Networks first acquisition in May 2011.
Enablence's Trident7 team is headquartered in Alpharetta, GA.
