Tektronix Inc. is buying testing specialist Minacom for $27 million.
Minacom's test solutions for VoIP, voice, video, Internet, fax, and fax-over-IP provide active troubleshooting, provisioning, and automated service quality monitoring. Montreal-based Minacom markets those platforms to cable operators, as well as wireless and VoIP service providers. It claims to have systems installed in more than 30 countries.
Minacom said its lineup of testing solutions will complement Tektronix's network monitoring systems.
"This acquisition will enable Tektronix to offer both active and passive probing capabilities for modern and legacy networks," said Tektronix SVP and GM Rich McBee, in a release.
