High performance access to file storage

Network equipment maker Juniper Networks is to acquire Kagoor Networks to give its VoIP business a little more oomph.

Kagoor - which generated $5m in revenues last year - is big into internet telephony. In particular, its session border control (SBC) technology is vital to delivering security to VoIP and other rich media services.

Now that Juniper is coughing up $67.5m to acquire Kagoor - its HQ is in California and its R&D centre is in Israel, btw - it will be able to get its mitts on the technology.

Said Juniper bigwig Kittu Kolluri: "Network operators worldwide are increasingly looking to deliver enhanced VoIP and other rich services to their enterprise and consumer customers, but they need to do this in a secure and assured fashion. SBC technology is a key element in delivering these attributes."

The deal is expected to be completed by June. ®
