Juniper Networks announced that it has acquired Canadian optical networking equipment company, BTI Systems. BTI provides carriers, service providers, content providers, colocation providers and cloud infrastructure companies with hardware and software-defined networking (SDN) tools. Terms of the deal were not disclosed.
“We expect the acquisition will allow Juniper to accelerate the delivery of open and automated packet optical transport solutions that integrate with our NorthStar Controller and include network management features that enable end-to-end provisioning of new services,” Juniper executive vice president and general manager Jonathan Davidson wrote in a blog post.
BTI’s network infrastructure portfolio combines control, management and applications software with category-defining Intelligent Cloud Connect (ICC) platforms and Packet Optical Transport systems (P-OTS) in an SDN-enabled, converged platform approach.
BTI had an existing partnership with Fujitsu with their FlashWave platform. Will this come to an end?
BTI’s investors include Bain Capital Ventures, BDC, Covington Capital and GrowthWorks.
