Aurora Networks, Inc., the only optical transport solution provider focused on delivering a cost-effective, optimised platform for next-generation cable services, announced it has strengthened its presence in the European cable market by establishing a reseller partnership with Technetix, a leading European broadband cable and telecommunications equipment supplier.

Through this partnership, the companies are targeting European cable operators with Aurora Networks' solutions, such as Fibre Deep, RFoG and segmentation technologies. The relationship will enhance Aurora Networks' existing European business structure, which supports cable operators across the continent as they evolve their networks for the delivery of advanced services available today and tomorrow.

Technetix, headquartered in the United Kingdom, sells, designs and manufactures market leading critical network technology solutions to cable operators all across Europe. The company which has sales and support offices in 10 European countries has more than 20 years experience in the cable TV business.

What Aurora Networks says

"Technetix brings to this partnership a cable-focused, synergistic strategy and complementary products that, when combined with our network technologies, provide a compelling set of solutions for the European cable business," said Pirjo Tuomi, Vice President of worldwide sales, Aurora Networks. "With Technetix, we will further help European cable operators evolve their networks to meet the current and future demands of their customers."

The entire Technetix cable portfolio supports and complies with the requirements of DOCSIS® 3.0 high-speed Internet services

What Technetix says

"Through our partnership with Aurora Networks, we are forming a long-term relationship that puts our cable operator customers first, offering a broader, robust selection of future-proof network solutions that enable the delivery of next-generation cable services," said Paul Broadhurst, CEO, Technetix. "We are excited to be supporting Aurora Networks' products and solutions in the European cable market."

Key details on Aurora Networks' solutions for Europe

Technetix is supporting sales and distribution of all Aurora Networks' products in targeted European markets; European cable operators are particularly interested in Fibre Deep, RFoG and segmentation solutions along with digital return technology.

Aurora Networks' Fibre Deep solution enables cable operators to significantly increase network capacity while reducing operating costs and energy consumption by greater than 50 percent, making Fibre Deep a truly-green technology for cable. Pushing fibre deeper into the network eliminates the need for RF amplifiers, which results in the removal of about 70 percent of actives found in a cable network, and that can reduce operational and maintenance costs by as much as 65 percent.

Industry-leading RFoG and RFPON (RFoG with a smooth migration to full PON) solutions enable cable operators to take advantage of FTTP architectures, incorporating unique components to overcome the deployment limitations associated with traditional approaches. Segmentation solutions from Aurora Networks include the company's xWDM technologies and the company's scalable node platforms that enable cable operators to easily and cost-effectively expand their networks.

Digital return fully supports cable operators launching upstream channel bonding with DOCSIS® 3.0, completely overcoming the performance limitations of analogue return. Digital return brings both performance and operational savings to an operator. The scalability of digital return, from return concatenation to full segmentation, provides a compelling fibre-efficient solution.
