Trapeze expands with Newbury acquisition: Deal expected to strengthen mobile enterprise offering

Looking to expand its enterprise-focused wireless network solution, Trapeze Networks said it has acquired Newbury Networks.
Trapeze said the deal will allow it to combine its network equipment and management systems with Newbury’s wireless local area network location systems. Terms of the acquisition were not disclosed.
Trapeze President Jim Vogt said in a statement that Newbury is a leader in real-time location services and has customers that include Apple Inc., Bechtel Corp., Hewlett-Packard Co., the National Security Agency and the Smithsonian Institution.
“We believe the combination of Newbury Networks and Trapeze Networks creates a formidable competitor and a comprehensive wireless network solution,” Vogt said.
Newbury will operate as an independent business unit and Trapeze plans to keep the company’s 16 employees. Newbury President Michael Maggio will report to Vogt. Included in the acquisition is Newbury’s patent portfolio for location-services technology.
IDC forecasts that WLAN location-based services will be a $1 billion opportunity by 2011.
