Sonus Networks agrees to buy Network Equipment Technologies in deal valued at $42m
Sonus Networks Inc., a Westford company that makes Internet network hardware and software, said Tuesday that it has agreed to buy Network Equipment Technologies in a transaction valued at $42 million. California-based Network Equipment Technologies provides enterprise-class networking solutions in the field of unified communications. So-called unified communications systems tie together e-mail, phones, and other tools over Internet networks. Sonus is looking to transition its focus to cloud-based unified communications, and it said that this proposed acquisition is consistent with that strategy.
