Allot completes Oversi acquisition


Allot Communications has completed its acquisition of Oversi Networks. Oversi is a provider of rich-media caching and content delivery solutions for Internet video and peer-to-peer (P2P) traffic. The agreement was announced on July 31, 2012.

The Oversi Networks acquisition enhances Allot’s vision to integrate the widest range of value-added services in its Service Gateway. Allot now enables operators to implement comprehensive video strategies by integrating caching with a portfolio of video services including video optimisation, analytics and tight integration with both policy and charging. The Allot Service Gateway enables wireless and wireline service providers worldwide to quickly and efficiently drive new revenue sources and to effectively manage the ever-increasing volume of video traffic on their networks.

Oversi's caching and acceleration solutions identifies popular content and caches it at the edge of the network, therefore achieving significant bandwidth saving and minimizing long delays in Video delivery and enabling the operator to better monetize the flood of video.

Oversi is Allot's second acquisition in the video optimisation and delivery space in 2012. Earlier this year it closed a deal to buy Ortiva Wireless.
