Juniper has bought voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) specialist Kagoor and its session border control (SBC) products. The frim’s SBC products are used by more than 100 carriers, most of which also use Juniper routers. SBCs sit at the network edge and ensure the reliable flow of real-time IP traffic across network boundaries. They enable carrier-to-carrier peering and are carrier-to-enterprise service and carrier-to-consumer service enablers. “Network operators worldwide are increasingly looking to deliver enhanced VoIP and other rich services to their enterprise and consumer customers, but they need to do this in a secure and assured fashion. SBC technology is a key element in delivering these attributes,” says Kittu Kolluri, Juniper's general manager of security products. The acquisition is expected to close during the second quarter. Kagoor was founded in 2000 and generated fewer than US$5 million in revenue during 2004. Kagoor also has partnerships with other industry leaders, including Lucent, Siemens and NEC.
