Fluke Acquires Intellectual Property of Viola Networks

Fluke Networks has acquired the intellectual property of Viola Networks for an undisclosed sum.

Viola, a start-up which was based in Yoqneam, Israel & King of Prussia, Pennsylvania, specialized in VoIP performance management software. Viola's NetAlly RealTime software was developed for service providers for pre-service network readiness assessment, post deployment voice quality and VoIP capacity management, as well as on-demand network troubleshooting, as required by real-time VoIP applications. The companies investors included Evergreen Partners, M/C Venture Partners and Concord Ventures.

Fluke said the purchase of Viola's technologies and source code will enable it to extend significantly its product lines further into VoIP analysis. Fluke Networks intends to rebrand and integrate elements of NetAlly into new products containing these capabilities as well as create extensions to existing Fluke Networks' lines.
