Juniper Networks has bought into the fixed and mobile video traffic game with the acquisition of new media infrastructure specialist Ankeena Networks for an undisclosed sum.
Ankeena specialises in online video delivery with the aim of providing a smooth, television-like viewing experience across platforms.
It will be integrated into the Junos Ready Software business group, where it will help Juniper enhance its content delivery networking capabilities to next-generation service providers.
"[This] reflects our commitment to transforming the experience and economics of networking, in this case by delivering an enhanced TV-like user experience of both fixed and mobile video traffic, while enabling crucial TCO reductions for operators," said Junos executive vice president and general manager Manoj Leelanivas.
The financial impact of the transaction is expected to be immaterial, Juniper said, with consideration at closing of under $100m.
