CA Technologies Acquires Torokina Networks

CA Technologies has agreed to acquire Australia-based telecoms consultancy firm Torokina Networks for an unspecified amount.

The Sydney-based Torokina helps communications service providers in the Asia Pacific to manage their networks. CA plans to use Torokina's technology and expertise to extend its support to companies offering 3G, 4G and Long Term Evolution (LTE) services.

The acquisition, which will see Torokina employees joining CA's Service Assurance division, will allow CA to extend system support into niche areas like service operations management, application performance management and infrastructure management, PC World reports.

Christopher Cook, the general manager of CA's service assurance division, said in a statement: “Combining the technology and expertise from Torokina with our existing service assurance solutions, CA Technologies can now offer one-stop shopping for CSPs to help them ensure optimised services and network availability to customers and internal users.”
