CTDI Acquires GoDigital Networks.
Under the terms of the agreement, CTDI will continue to design, manufacture, sell and support GoDigital-branded products, primarily the XCel product family, and will assume ongoing product life-cycle management responsibilities. GoDigital's facility in Fremont, Calif. will become the newest of CTDI's 37 locations in their global network. Frank Akers, GoDigital president & CEO, will lead the Fremont branch and its staff, focusing on R&D, sales and marketing.
"The acquisition of GoDigital Networks strengthens CTDI's product, repair and service portfolios," said Parsons. "CTDI's increased capacity in the high-growth access and transport markets will benefit both our OEM and carrier customers."
"GoDigital couldn't be happier to have merged with CTDI, which is recognized as the leader in the telecom service industry," stated Akers. "This can only strengthen our current DSL product solutions and solidify our long-term vision for GoDigital products."
GoDigital Networks designs and markets telecommunications equipment that facilitates universal broadband coverage and increases copper access line performance. Products include the XCel-4a ADSL extension system, which extends the range of existing DSLAMs and Next Generation Digital Loop Carriers (NGDLCs).
GoDigital's long-range DSL and multiple voice transmission systems help ILECs more fully utilize existing copper infrastructure to deliver cost-effective voice services and V.90 Internet access to business and residential subscribers (regardless of distance from the central office), while mechanized loop testing technology provides remote diagnosis of copper line issues. More than 300 local exchange carriers use GoDigital products, including Qwest, Verizon, ALLTEL, CenturyTel, TELUS and Iowa Telecom.
