Aurora Networks has acquired Trident7 technology from Enablence Technologies for a total purchase price of $5.1 million. The transaction is expected to close by Sept. 15 and includes the sale of Enablence's Trident7 Universal Access Platform for delivery of FTTP services through optical networks. Also included in the sale are related inventory, certain patents, certain product and process technology and customer contracts and lists. Approximately 25 Enablence employees are expected to move to Aurora effective at the close of the transaction.

The purchase is intended to enhance Aurora's capability to support emerging services such as IP video, OTT video, and commercial services. The Trident7 chassis provides aggregation and management functions including DPoE of both node- and chassis-based PON deployments. Further, the platform will extend the capability to additional node-based solutions such as BitCoax, Aurora's Ethernet-over-coax solution to support Gigabit data rates over existing HFC networks' coaxial drops.
