As I hope you have seen, ADTRAN recently announced the acquisition of Bluesocket, a leading innovator in virtual wireless LAN solutions. Virtualization is a key component to scaling wireless networks. As enterprises become increasingly mobile and distributed, traditional controller based architectures become costly and cumbersome to manage. Bluesocket’s key innovation is the virtualization of the control and management of the network. Remote sites and users are managed from a single location that can be private or public cloud based.
Adding to this ADTRAN’s extensive portfolio of LAN switching and UC solutions will allow ADTRAN to deliver a complete wired/wireless integrated networking solution to our customers and partners.
We are very excited to bring this innovative Boston based team and product line into the ADTRAN family.
