Ditech Buys VoIP Gear Maker Jasomi For $20 M
CHICAGO -- The Voice over IP equipment-market consolidation continued here at Supercomm Tuesday, when Ditech Communications Corp. announced plans to buy session border controller maker Jasomi Networks for $20 million.
The acquisition comes on the heels of Juniper's purchase of Kagoor Networks in March, a $29 million buy that is part of what is seen as a somewhat inevitable consolidation of discrete VoIP networking technologies into more-comprehensive offerings.
Session border controllers (SBCs) are devices that optimize voice-based traffic over an IP network, and can ensure secure connections between carriers, as well as between service providers and customers. Independent competitors still standing in the arena include NexTone Communications, Veraz Networks, Netrake Corp. and Sonus Networks.
"Ditech started offering a packet voice processor in March," said Chalan M.
Aras, Ditech vice president of marketing. "We felt this [acquisition] would
allow us to provide a more comprehensive solution."
While Ditech's packet voice processor offered companies transcoding,
enhanced quality and toll-quality services at the borders of their VoIP
networks, the company didn't offer the security and peering technology that
Jansom's products offer, Aras added.
