CA buys Sydney-based telco software provider

CA posts third quarter revenue growth.

CA Technologies has acquired Sydney's Torokina Networks, a provider of service assurance management to communications service providers, for an undisclosed sum. 

The five-year-old software development company specialised in helping service providers manage demand for mobile services like email, video and social networking.

Torokina's software provided a single "pane of glass" interface for service providers looking to manage network performance and faults, said Chris Gibbs, formerly vice president of worldwide sales and operations at Torokina Networks and now vice president of solution sales for CA Technologies.

Torokina was an existing CA channel partner and the two had already bundled products, he said.

For CA, the buy extended its service assurance strategy to application performance management, infrastructure management and service operations management.

CA has transferred Torokina's seven sales and pre-sales staff to the vendor's service assurance business in the Sydney suburb of North Ryde.

Torokina's four engineers would be relocated to CA's US headquarters in March. 

Torokina silent partner and founder Kevin Vardy retired in December.
