JDSU Acquires Innocor for Broadband Test Solutions

JDSU agreed to acquire Innocor, a provider of broadband test solutions for network equipment manufacturers, for an undisclosed sum. JDSU expects to complete the acquisition in the current fiscal fourth quarter ending June 30, 2007.

Innocor's TestPoint product family is designed for development, verification and production of next-generation fibre channel, 10G Ethernet and SONET/SDH/OTN networks. TestPoint complements JDSU's ONT-506, the industry's first all-in-one portable tester for 40/43G networks, including jitter and wander.

Innocor, which is based in Ottawa, will be integrated with JDSU's Communications Test and Measurement (CommTest) business.

In a related development, JDSU also announced the appointment of Bill Mortimer as vice president and general manager of JDSU CommTest's Lab and Production division, overseeing the company's fiber optic, optical transport and Innocor business units.

  • In January 2007, JDSU agreed to acquire Casabyte Inc., a provider of service quality monitoring solutions for mobile network operators, for an undisclosed sum. The acquisition is targeted at the need for quality of service (QoS) test solutions as network operators deliver bandwidth-intensive multimedia content over converged fixed- mobile networks.
