Who Shot JR?
Such is life in the OSS space.
Comcast Corp. (Nasdaq: CMCSA, CMCSK) is JR's marquee MSO customer, along with European MSOs Virgin Media Inc. (Nasdaq: VMED) and UPC Broadband .
In 2005, Amdocs acquired cable billing and customer relationship management (CRM) player DST Innovis for $238 million, which, not coincidentally, counts Comcast and Cablevision Systems Corp. (NYSE: CVC) as key customers. (See Amdocs Buys DST Innovis.) [Ed note: It's hard to build a cable vendor dynasty on the cheap, don't ya know?]
Amdocs, of course, already enjoys a very long list of wireline and mobile telecom carriers as customers. The company continues to take aim at Convergys Corp. (NYSE: CVG) in the battle for cable supremacy as well.
