Juniper Kills Kagoor Products

Light Reading reported that Juniper is killing its Session Border Controller products that were part of the Kagoor acquisition. In recent meetings with Acme Packet, Sansay and others, I was told that Juniper wasn’t coming up in competitive bids. So to me this move isn’t too surprising. Still the SBC market is growing quickly and there is a great deal of money to be made in this space. What led to this development is probably Juniper not focusing effectively on post-merger integration.

After the acquisition there was a press call that I was on explaining how the synergies between the two companies will help service providers. The synergies are sill there but there needs to be better execution if Juniper wants to go at this market again.

    Will you retract your “2004 Product of the Year” award for the voiceflow 4000 that NEVER MADE IT TO MARKET?

    It’s basically focus and vision issue.
