Eicon Networks Acquires Intel's Media and Signalling Business

Eicon announces that its acquisition of Intel Corporation's Media and Signalling business has been completed. Eicon also announces that it would be proceeding to change its name to Dialogic Corporation ("Dialogic") as it swiftly moves to merge the two businesses into one. Dialogic's focus will be multimedia processing, signalling and converged communications as it assumes the leadership position in its chosen market segments.

The new Dialogic will have strong financial backing with leading global investment groups Investcorp Technology Ventures and Tennenbaum Capital Partners. Investcorp is serving as the lead equity investor in the transaction, and Tennenbaum is providing a credit facility and serving as an equity co-investor.

Eicon's Diva Server product line is now complemented by products from the Intel Media and Signalling business, including the broad range of Dialogic analogue and T1/E1 network interface and voice cards, PBX integration and station interface cards, voice and video Host Media Processing software and HMP-enabled boards, SS7 and signalling solutions (including an SS7-based AMC card), gateway solutions, and ATCA -based multimedia server product line.

With this complete product line the new Dialogic has extensive coverage to address its target market segments with the emphasis on quality, service and ease of doing business - all backed by industry leading support. This is underwritten by over twenty Dialogic offices that will provide local presence, knowledge and support worldwide and serve our customers around the globe.

The new Dialogic and Intel will work together during a transition period to ensure a smooth integration of the businesses and that product supply and support is essentially 'business as usual' for all customers. The new Dialogic plans to move quickly toward a fully integrated operation.
