The new financing builds on Accedian Networks’ continued success, driven by innovative, market-leading service assurance solutions that help service providers provision, manage and maintain leading-edge packet-based services over Ethernet, IP/MPLS and 3G, 4G/WiMAX networks. The latest funding will fuel continued product development, and to expand sales, marketing, operations and customer service capacities in response to significant global demand.

Together, these factors form a compelling market opportunity for RHO Canada Ventures,” explained Mr. Paquin.

“With this renewed financing, our investment partners have reinforced their support for our company, and our distinctive product strategy and vision,” said Patrick Ostiguy, founding President and CEO of Accedian Networks. “Our solutions’ industry-unique functionality, including the multi-vendor SLA-MeterTM and in-service performance testing have enabled and accelerated revenue generating services for our customers. With this latest funding in place, we will continue to strengthen our position as a leading vendor and innovator of packet performance assurance solutions.”
