Nokia Siemens Networks Completes Acquisition of Atrica

Nokia Siemens Networks completed its previously announced acquisition of Atrica, a supplier of Carrier Ethernet solutions. The deal was first announced in October 2007.

Atrica's product suite consists of its A-8100 Carrier Ethernet Core Switch, its A-4100 Carrier Ethernet Aggregation Switch and its A-2100 Carrier Ethernet Edge Switch, as well as the Atrica Service Platform for Ethernet Networks (ASPEN), an integrated service provisioning and management system. Earlier this year, Atrica introduced its A-1180 Multi-port Carrier Ethernet Demarcation Device, which enables end-to-end service delivery across third-party networks - as well as Atrica-based networks - with QoS control for each individual service.

Atrica has over 40 customers including Orange Business Services, KVH and Optimum LightPath.

Atrica is a privately-held company with headquarters in Santa Clara, California and R&D in Israel. Atrica has approximately 180 employees.

Nokia Siemens Networks noted that it has more than 70 deployments worldwide that span the full spectrum of Carrier Ethernet applications (wireless backhaul, residential backhaul, business Ethernet services).
