Symmetricom Acquires QoSmetrics

Symmetricom agreed to acquire QoSmetrics, a privately held provider of QoE solutions for IPTV and other triple play services, for $16 million in cash.

QoSmetrics offers a broad base of tools to measure key IP Performance Metrics (IPPM), as well as to monitor VoIP and video-based data streams. The products provide real time, multi-protocol, end-to-end monitoring and diagnostic capabilities that enable service providers to troubleshoot and often prevent network issues.

Symmetricom said the acquisition would enhance its position in emerging areas of the global telecommunications industry by providing those service providers with the tools and monitoring capabilities necessary to maximize QoE for end users of triple play services.

QoSmetrics was founded in 1999 and maintains corporate and R&D facilities in Camarillo, California and in Paris, France.
