Cisco to Acquire Tropo for Phone/SMS APIs

Cisco agreed to acquire Tropo, a start-up offering real-time communications APIs. Financial terms were not disclosed.

Cisco and Tropo will provide a collaboration platform-as-a-service, which allows customers and developers to create and sell new communications services with minimal development effort. Tropo makes it simple to build phone and SMS applications. The company says its APIs have attracted a network of 200K+ developers.

The Tropo team will join Cisco's Collaboration Technology Group under the leadership of Rowan Trollope, SVP and general manager.
