Dialogic, which is based in Montreal, Canada, acquired all of the outstanding shares of EAS Group and its subsidiaries including Cantata Technology Inc., Excel Switching Corp., Brooktrout Technology Inc. and SnowShore Networks Inc. The acquisition was a share-based transaction and the former shareholders of EAS are now minority shareholders in Dialogic.
Through the acquisition of EAS and its subsidiaries, Dialogic will expand its product portfolio and customer base in the communications technology enabling market segment with the portfolio of Cantata’s communication boards and software. Cantata’s printed circuit board products enable voice transmission, fax, and network connection within standard telephone networks, VoIP systems, and call center systems.
The addition of the SnowShore IP Media Server, the Excel Converged System Platform, the Excel Multi-Services Platform and Cantata Technology IMG 1010 product families will allow Dialogic to expand its customer base in the service provider market segment.
The Brooktrout TR1000, Brooktrout TR1034, Brooktrout TruFax and Brooktrout SR140 product families will aid Dialogic in serving the enterprise market segment
“We are very excited about this acquisition,” said Nick Jensen, Dialogic’s president and CEO. “It allows us to consolidate our position as the market segment leader and broaden our leading edge product and services portfolio. We are confident that we will seamlessly integrate this business into Dialogic as successfully as we did last year when we acquired Intel Corporation’s media and signaling business.”
