Alcatel-Lucent buys NetDevices

Antony Savvas

Alcatel-Lucent is to acquire privately held NetDevices to offer customers an improved way to manage their branch office networks.

NetDevices sells the Unified Service Gateway which is designed to deliver cheaper and more flexible enterprise networking over branch office networks. 

NetDevices was founded in 2003, and has 45 employees located in Sunnyvale, California and Bangalore, India.

Hubert de Pesquidoux, president of Alcatel-Lucent's enterprise business, said, "Enterprises are quickly evolving to a converged communications infrastructure of data, voice, and security services.

“Traditional architectures lack the flexibility and programmability to deploy these new converged infrastructures in a cost-effective way.  A fresh approach, based on the innovative enterprise platform from NetDevices combined with our voice and switching offering, helps to deliver best in class enterprise networks."

NetDevices' services gateways bring all required services for a branch office into a unified package, reducing the network complexity for enterprise customers and SMEs.

The NetDevices team and products will be integrated into Alcatel-Lucent's enterprise business group. The value of the acquisition has not been disclosed.
