May 4, 2011

Optical transport solutions provider Aurora Networks has acquired digital headend solutions specilaist GoBackTV, as part of a planned expansion of its offering for cable operators.

“GoBackTV fills expertise in evolving areas that represent timely opportunities for Aurora Networks to expand its technology in line with the needs of cable operators,” said Guy Sucharczuk, chairman, president and CEO of Aurora Networks. “We are using this acquisition to increase our technology base enabling us to expand the breadth of our product lines, thus maintaining our lead as the cable operator’s main partner to build future-proof networks.”

To round out its offering, Aurora Networks will strategically integrate key technologies from GoBackTV’s current product line of headend and edge solutions into its current product line. GoBackTV’s product offering complements Aurora Network’s strategy as its solutions are a flexible and future-proof way to deploy all-digital video services, says the company.
