Enghouse Systems has signed a deal to acquire US software company Dialogic Group for $52 million, further enhancing its product portfolio.

New Jersey-based Dialogic partners with mobile operators, system integrators and technology developers to deploy its solutions via its worldwide network of offices. Dialogic's revenue over the next twelve months is projected to be between $58 million and $63 million.

"This acquisition strengthens our position in the enterprise video and unified communications market segment by adding rich multi-media processing applications and capabilities," said Steve Sadler, chairman and CEO of Enghouse Systems.

"In the communications service provider market, Dialogic provides network infrastructure solutions that facilitate virtualisation, the evolution to 5G networks and the transition of networks from hardware to software-defined network connectivity. We are very pleased to welcome Dialogic's employees, customers and partners to Enghouse."

Dialogic's infrastructure products offer Session Border Controller (SBC) and several software-based network solutions to communication service providers. This combination enables the transformation from legacy time division multiplexing (TDM) to next-generation network platforms.

Acquisitions form a large part of Enghouse's overall growth and diversification strategy. Enghouse primarily focuses on acquiring software and services firms with applications solutions and existing customer bases, but will also consider technology-only acquisitions.

2019 was a busy year on the acquisition front for Enghouse after it bought Eptica, Espial Group, Vidyo, and ProOpti. In Q4 2019, Enghouse Networks released a new scalable and flexible monetisation solution to support the complex internet of things (IoT) supply chain.
