Broadcom Acquires Broadlight for $195 Million

Broadcom confirmed its intention to acquire BroadLight, a leading supplier of network and PON processors, for approximately $195 million, net of cash assumed.


The acquisition of BroadLight further extends Broadcom's presence in the access network.


"Combining BroadLight's PON solutions with the strength of Broadcom's broadband access portfolio will enable us to offer a complete, end-to-end solution for customers — from OLT at the central office to CPE at the home. BroadLight's strong engineering team and broad IP will complement and extend our ability to deliver next-generation access technologies to customers, said Dan Marotta, Executive Vice President and General Manager of Broadcom's Broadband Communications Group.
