Tektronix Communications to buy Arbor Networks
Tektronix Communications, a Texas-based provider of communications test and network intelligence solutions, said it has agreed to buy Arbor Networks, a Chelmsford-based provider of network security and management solutions for converged carrier networks and next-generation data centers.
The terms of the acquisition are not being disclosed, Tektronix Communications said.
Privately held Arbor Networks does not disclose revenue figures. It employs about 275 workers in Chelmsford and at an R&D facility in Ann Arbor, Mich., a company spokeswoman said.
When the deal closes, something expected to happen in September, Arbor will remain a separate operating company, maintaining its brand identity and management structure within Tektronix Communications, the Arbor spokeswoman said.
"Arbor Networks expands our portfolio of leading companies in the communications and enterprise markets," McBee said. "The addition of their superior solutions allows us to offer our fixed-line, mobile, converged/IP, and enterprise customers solutions to deploy, measure, monitor, and secure their networks."
