Oracle to buy communications infrastructure software vendor HotSip
According to a recent Press Release:
HotSip is a provider of telecommunications infrastructure software and Session Initiation Protocol (SIP) enabled applications for IP telephony, presence, messaging and conferencing on new converged networks. “The addition of HotSip’s technology will allow Oracle to build on its leadership in middleware and in carrier-grade communications infrastructures,” said Thomas Kurian, senior vice president, Oracle Server Technologies.
This is Oracle’s 16th acquisition in just under 14 months. I assume we will see some sort of “fusion” with Oracle Collaboration Suite.
