Oracle has announced plans to buy Swedish communications software firm HotSip, just a day after snapping up open source software company Sleepycat.
HotSip produces telecommunications infrastructure software and Session Initiation Protocol (SIP) enabled applications for IP telephony, presence, messaging and conferencing on converged networks.
Thomas Kurian, senior vice president, Oracle server technologies, said: “The addition of HotSip's technology will allow Oracle to build on its leadership in middleware and in carrier-grade communications infrastructures.”
The move follows the acquisition of Sleepycat, whose Berkeley DB is the most widely used opensource database in the world, and continues Oracle’s long string of recent acquisitions.
The firm announced last week that it would lay off 2,000 of its 57,000 workforce following the completion of its £3.43bn acquisition of Siebel Systems. It is now halfway through the integration of PeopleSoft products after its takeover of PeopleSoft more than a year ago.
