CDTI takes on responsibility from July

Motorola and Communications Test Design (CTDI) announced recently that Motorola has divested its proven Fiber-to-the-Node (FTTN) product family to CTDI, effective 2 July 2009.

The transaction will enable both companies to focus on technologies that will grow their businesses and position their customers for success in the long-term.

“When acquiring new product platforms, CTDI carefully evaluates how these products compliment our current portfolio of products and our global service strategies,” states Brian Parsons, Vice President of CTDI’s Products Division.

“I have no doubt the Motorola FTTN products align well with our global product and service strategies and that CTDI is well positioned to provide outstanding, on-going support and availability of the product to the Carrier and MSO customers of this business.” Beginning immediately, CTDI will provide all sales, manufacturing, repair, and technical support services for the FTTN platform.

Motorola revealed that it is committed to delivering on customers’ expectations without disruption or distraction. “We are pleased that CTDI will continue delivering FTTN services to our FTTN customers so they can retain and grow their subscriber base,” said Joe Cozzolino, Senior Vice President and General Manager, Access Networks Solutions, Home and Networks Mobility.

“CTDI feels the acquisition of Motorola’s FTTN products is strategic to its rapid growth and leadership position in the Connected Home services arena where the company continues to expand its service offering as delivered through its footprint of 42 global operations across 11 countries. “
