Broadsoft acquires product line from Genband

VoIP application company BroadSoft announced that it acquired fellow vendor Genband's M6 Communication Applications Server and related assets. The product formerly was the heart of vendor VocalData, which Genband acquired during a buying binge it carried out over the last few years. Genband had acquired VocalData, Tekelec's Taqua unit and other firms, but has since spun off Taqua and now divested the VocalData product and assets.

Genband more recently has turned its attention toward media gateways, femtocells and other products, while Broadsoft specializes in VoIP apps. The deal will help Broadsoft expand its customer base in the carrier VoIP applications market. The two companies also will partner on network transformation projects.
