Motorola Completes Acquisition of Leapstone -- IMS Software

Motorola completed its acquisition of privately-held Leapstone Systems. Financial terms were not disclosed. Leapstone is now part of Motorola's Home & Network Mobility business.

Leapstone's flagship Communications Convergence Engine (CCE) product suite is a real-time service delivery platform that enables fixed and mobile network operators to expand and evolve their service offerings through its Service Broker and Content Manager software products.

  • In May 2007, Leapstone released version 8.0 of its flagship Communications Convergence Engine (CCE) software, adding new capabilities aimed at IPTV providers. This includes a set of advanced blackout functions for regional sports events, as required by content owners. With this feature, enabled by Leapstone's Microsoft Windows-based middleware, IPTV providers can selectively allow content suppliers to automatically schedule, monitor and manage events for regional blackouts.

  • Leapstone was founded in 2001 and is headquartered in New Jersey.
