Scientific-Atlanta acquires ChanneLogics technology

ATLANTA (Georgia): Scientific-Atlanta announced yesterday it had expanded its data strategy with the acquisition of software, technology and other assets of ChanneLogics Inc., a software developer that provides cable operators visibility to their HSD traffic and bandwidth consumption all the way down to the individual cable modem.

The company's CableLogics software suite also includes forecast and prediction algorithms that allow the operator to identify potential bottlenecks and efficiently plan HSD capacity expansion. By adding the CableLogics software to its ROSA and TNCS management systems, Scientific-Atlanta expands its management capabilities of DOCSIS-based HSD networks, according to a company release. The new management and control solution joins the Scientific-Atlanta Prisma CMTS family of products and a range of WebSTAR cable modems to equip cable operators to provide superior broadband HSD services to consumers.

"As we roll out the next generation of data platforms and services with cable operators, visibility into the cable network's usage and performance regarding bandwidth management is critical," said Paul Connolly, vice president of marketing and network architectures at Scientific-Atlanta.

"As the cable operators' capital expenditures of the last few years evolve into operating expenditures, they need solutions like ours to improve efficiency, protect revenue and manage their operations. Adding the ChanneLogics products and expertise to our array of management solutions offers new opportunities for cable operators to deliver more robust HSD performance, to help reduce churn, and attract new customers, all while lowering operating costs."

Scientific-Atlanta's acquisition of substantially all the assets of the Atlanta-based software developer, including all R&D and intellectual property, was completed 6 November. Terms of the purchase were not announced.
