SANTA CLARA, CAAurora Networks, an optical transport solutions provider for cable operators, announced that it will acquire Enablence Technologies' Trident7 fiber-to-the-home technology. Enablence, which acquired its FTTH portfolio from such pioneers as Wave7 Technologies, announced several months ago that it was looking for a buyer for its access networks division.

Aurora Networks already offered a variety of solutions, including RFoG and PON, to help cable operators migrate to all-IP environments. The Trident7 acquisition allows it to expand its FTTH offerings to include all the technologies that are widely used today - EPON, GPON and active Ethernet.

The acquisition also gives Aurora a greater range of solutions for customer-premises equipment, or optical network terminals, including outdoor and indoor-based solutions, embedded residential gateway and wireless offerings.

Most important, the Trident7 chassis provides aggregation and management functions for DPoE (DOCSIS Provisioning of EPON), the technology that cable companies rely on to integrate fiber into their DOCSIS networks. The Trident7 platform will extend DPoE to node-based solutions such as BitCoax, Aurora Networks’ Ethernet-over-Coax solution, which supports gigabit data rates over existing HFC networks’ coaxial drops.

“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,” says 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.”
