Accelerated Networks Gets Millions in Venture Capital

Accelerated Networks Inc. in Westlake Village has received $14.5 million in venture capital funding from Onset Ventures, Walden International Investment Group, New Enterprise Associates, US Venture Partners and Windward Ventures.

The money will allow the company to pursue its entrance into the fast-growing market for providing telecommunications access.
