Juniper Networks this week entered into a definitive agreement to acquire BTI Systems, a provider of cloud and metro networking systems and software to content, cloud and service providers.
Terms of the acquisition were not disclosed.
BTI will allow Juniper to accelerate delivery of packet optical transport systems for the data center interconnect and metro optical networking markets. The BTI products will be integrated with Juniper’s NorthStar Controller and network management features to enable end-to-end provisioning of services, said Jonathan Davidson, executive vice president and general manager, Juniper Development and Innovation, in this blog post.
The NorthStar Controller is a traffic optimizer for IP/MPLS WANs. It’s designed to automate the creation of traffic-engineering paths across service provider and enterprise networks.
The acquisition is subject to customary closing conditions and expected to be completed in the second quarter.
