JUNE 8, 2010 -- Tejas Networks Ltd., a next-generation optical networking systems house based in Bangalore, India, has acquired Israeli Carrier Ethernet equipment supplier Ethos Networks. Tejas says the deal was “a cashless transaction.”

Tejas expects the Ethos acquisition will augment its offerings in the packet optical space and enhance its Future Proof Transport Architecture (FPTATM) portfolio. (For a take on Ethos’s roots in such applications, see “Ethos Networks touts 'simple' packet transport.”)

Tejas CEO and Managing Director Sanjay Nayak said, “This acquisition completes our portfolio in offering best-in-class, end-to-end multi-service solutions for SDH/SONET, Carrier Ethernet, and hybrid transmission architectures and a seamless network management software (NMS) suite. Our new portfolio will enable our customers to deploy equipment that can concurrently support legacy services and packet services, and at the same time gracefully evolve to an all-packet infrastructure of the future without any service disruption and costly rip-and-replace.”

The existing staff of Ethos will be integrated with the Tejas Networks’ global workforce, the company says. “We are excited to integrate a very talented Ethos team, which has created the highly differentiated Carrier Ethernet products and industry-leading network management software into the Tejas team,” said Nayak. “Over the last 10 years, Tejas has evolved into global company serving all major telecom carriers in India and several international customers spread over 50 countries. This acquisition also provides us with sales presence in Europe, which has a high adoption potential for new packet-based technologies.”
