The network transmission technology specialist will use the investment for “further market traction” and to fund a “broader range of business opportunities”.

Commenting on the investment Technetix CEO, Paul Broadhurst, said that the deal further cements the company’s already close relationship with Liberty Global.

“We are resolutely focussed on delivering the next generation technology platforms to market which form a key part of our customers’ networks allowing expansion, better efficiency while minimising total cost of ownership. The funding will assist in scaling our business in all areas to meet future growth,” said Broadhurst.
