BigBand Files for IPO


Is building better video backbone technology a story that will play on Wall Street? That’s what BigBand Networks hopes, as the company filed for an IPO on Dec. 22. Previous reporting from Light Reading said BigBand may seek to raise $120 million or so; according to a story at Telephony, BigBand, which sells systems that help with service provider delivery of voice, video and data, hasn’t yet set a share price or a total for the offering. Of course, the S-1 could just be a “make your offer now” signal to Cisco Systems and other big-gear players who are taking an interest in all things TV.
