Oracle snaps up Acme Packet - Business - The Boston Globe

Oracle buys its way into Cisco's market domain
"Acme Packet employs about 900 workers and produces obscure but vital products for Internet Protocol networks — communications systems that use the same data protocols that run on the Internet. IP networks can handle all kinds of communications traffic more efficiently than traditional phone networks.
Acme Packet’s chief product, called a session border controller, acts as a sort of middleman between multiple networks. It enables voice, text, and video traffic to move seamlessly between wireline and wireless networks. It also lets companies running private IP networks easily connect them to public phone systems."
