CA Acquires Australian Telecom Consultancy

CA Technologies has acquired Torokina Networks, a Sydney-based consultancy focused on helping communications service providers (CSPs) in the Asia-Pacific region manage their networks, the companies announced Tuesday. Terms of the deal were not disclosed.

CA plans to use Torokina's expertise and tools to expand its support of CSPs, especially those offering 3G, 4G and Long Term Evolution (LTE) mobile technologies. CA will offer more systems support in the areas of application performance management, infrastructure management and service operations management.

"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 optimized services and network availability to customers and internal users," said Christopher Cook, a service assurance general manager for CA Technologies, in a statement.

Prior to the acquisition, the two companies have worked together on various projects to support CSPs. Torokina has built up an expertise in the service management software originally offered by Oblicore, which CA purchased a year ago.

Employees of Torokina Networks will be merged into CA Technologies' Service Assurance business.
