Brocade has announced that it has acquired the network visibility and analytics technology assets of Vistapointe.

The Vistapointe technologies are software-based, carrier-grade network visibility and analytics solutions for mobile operators embracing Network Functions Virtualisation (NFV) architectures.

According to Brocade, the acquisition enables the company to address the emerging opportunities and requirements of its service provider customers, especially global Mobile Network Operators (MNOs), as telcos will be better equipped to classify, visualise, manage, and secure subscriber data traffic to deliver a superior user experience through real-time insights gained from network activity.

As part of the transaction, Vistapointe CEO, Ravi Medikonda, has joined Brocade as vice president of the Network Visibility and Analytics product group. Furthermore, Brocade has hired the Vistapointe development team.

“The Vistapointe acquisition affirms our commitment to SDN and NFV as a means to disrupt the status quo of the networking industry,” said Ken Cheng, CTO and vice president of Corporate Development, Brocade.

“We will continue to execute against a focused strategy that leverages M&A, strategic partnerships, open source communities, and organic innovation to deliver next-generation networking solutions that are open, virtual, and simple,” he added.

The expected revenue for data traffic over mobile handsets will exceed $358 billion by 2018, representing the single largest source of revenue for MNOs over the next six years, according to Analysys Mason.
