Avaya has made a bid to purchase Ubiquity Software to strengthen its presence in the convergence space.

The telephone equipment maker has made an offer of US$144million for Ubiquity to give it greater leverage in the fixed-mobile convergence (FMC) arena.

UK-based Ubiquity develops and markets SIP (session initiation protocol)-based communications software for fixed and mobile service providers, systems integrators, independent software vendors and channel partners.

Carriers use SIP-based software to deploy IP multimedia subsystems (IMS), which can then enable them to deliver FMC services.

"We believe that the addition of Ubiquity's next generation software platform to Avaya's portfolio will help customers and developers enhance the integration of communications technologies and business processes," stated Micky Tsui, vice president of global communications solutions at Avaya.
