Arris Rumored to be Ready to Buy Concurrent

Concurrent Computer, an embattled vendor of video-on-demand (VOD) systems, announced back in July that it was amenable to takeover offers.

If rumors toward the end of this week are to be believed, Concurrent might have found a buyer in its most likely suitor, Arris Group Inc.

The VoD-server space is consolidating, and Concurrent’s technology would find an obvious home in the Arris camp. Arris has the means to acquire Concurrent, whose VOD-system capabilities would fill a hole in Arris’ product roster for MSO’s and other broadband service providers.

Although Arris itself was an acquisition candidate, for now the company appears to be a buyer rather than a seller.
