Turin Buys White Rock Assets

PETALUMA, Calif. -- Turin Networks, a global provider of IP and multiservice optical transport solutions for wireline, wireless, MSO and private networks, today announced that the company has acquired the product portfolio and the majority of the material assets of White Rock Networks, a provider of next-generation optical transport products for metro networks. This transaction simultaneously expands Turin Networks’ product portfolio and carrier customer base to over 300 customers worldwide.

"Turin Networks already has a significant market presence with diverse network operators worldwide who are transitioning to packet-optimized, high-capacity transport networks," said Henry Wasik, president and CEO of Turin Networks. “We look forward to working with our new customers from the former White Rock Networks - which includes major CLECs, ILECs, and MSOs - both to support their existing deployments, and to offer them a combined product portfolio that meets a wider range of their requirements."

White Rock Networks’ product portfolio consists of the VLX 2020 Optical Transport System, the VLX 2006 Multiservice Access Platform, the VLX 300 and 400 Service Edge Concentrators and the VLXpert EMS.

As consolidation in the carrier space creates ever-stronger entities, and as more bandwidth-intensive applications, such as video streaming, continue to boost Internet traffic, the requirement for increased optical backbone capacity is expanding dramatically. Turin Networks’ product portfolio is focused on enabling carriers to support new services and increase transport bandwidth, at the most optimal cost structure.
