Avaya Buys Radvision for $230 Million

Silver Lake has the golden touch?  Having helped Skype become a stand alone entity,  It has been interesting and confusing from time to time to watch Avaya under its care.

I expected Avaya was going to benefit from portfolio proximity of Skype, but it never happened.

Since then Cisco has bought Tanberg leaving Radvision's role as a subcontractor dubious.

With Avaya gaining the skills of our friends at Radvision,  I think the migration to Video and the improvement of their SIP stack can be assured.

Additionally it opens up a huge opportunity to work with third parties in new ways.  Since for many of us Radvision has been the basis of our development. 

Mergers often require insight, beyond the immediate upfront strategy.

I think there is a gold mine here if Silver Lake manages it well.
