Symmetricom to Acquire Brilliant Telecom for Packet Timing

Symmetricom will acquire certain assets of Brilliant Telecommunications, Inc. including all of its intellectual property, for $3.5 million in cash, plus an additional $2.3 million in cash if certain milestones are achieved within six months of closing.

Brilliant Telecommunications, which is based in Campbell, California, has developed a family of network timing, management and synchronization solutions, which addresses emerging communications trends such as IP backhaul and the femtocell market segment.

"Synchronization and timing are increasingly critical considerations in the ongoing migration to Carrier IP networks," said James Armstrong, Executive Vice President and General Manager of the Communications Business Unit. "This acquisition augments our leadership in network timing and synchronization solutions."
