Oracle Buys HotSip for SIP Software

Oracle agreed to acquire Sweden-based HotSip AB, a provider of telecommunications infrastructure software and Session Initiation Protocol (SIP) enabled applications for IP telephony, presence, messaging and conferencing on new converged networks. Financial terms were not disclosed.

Hotsip offers convergent off-the-shelf applications as well as an open Service Creation Environment (SCE) for building new customized SIP and web applications. The company's core product is its Hotsip Multimedia Communication Engine (M2CE), a carrier-grade Session Initiation Protocol (SIP) and Java 2 Enterprise Edition (J2EE) application server.

  • Hotsip was founded in 1999 by Jens Lundström and Johan Liseborn, who worked together at Ellemtel Utvecklings AB (a research and development company jointly owned by Ericsson and Telia).
