Bluesocket Acquires VoIP Leader Pingtel

Bluesocket, a specialist in open, standards based enterprise mobility solutions, has announced it has acquired SIP-based enterprise communications solutions leader Pingtel Corporation.

This strategic move establishes a solid foundation for the delivery of converged mobility and unified communications offerings, and places Bluesocket in a leadership position to provide complete enterprise mobility solutions that combine secure wireless LAN and VoIP – including unified communications server technology which will be a key foundation for Bluesocket’s enterprise fixed mobile convergence (FMC) architecture.

Combining Bluesocket’s WLAN and security capabilities with Pingtel’s SIP PBX technology creates opportunities in two key market segments. The first is providing software-based, OEM-ready solutions to larger ecosystem partners seeking faster approaches for delivering integrated wired, wireless and voice offerings to their mid-market enterprise customers. Additionally, the combination enables Bluesocket to now target mid-sized and small enterprises interested in implementing a standards-based mobility solution oriented toward unified voice and data communications.
