Stratus Technologies is adding to its growing telecommunication capabilities with the $10 million purchase of Emergent Network Solutions.

Although the deal closed in August, Stratus is waiting until Sept. 12 at the Fall VON show in Boston to announce the deal.

Stratus counts telecom as one of the key verticals it targets, one in which the Maynard, Mass., company has played for more than 15 years. It currently offers a range of fixed mobile convergence technologies, and will now add VOIP (voice over IP) infrastructure software to its lineup with the acquisition of Emergent, said Ali Kafel, vice president of Stratus' telecom business.

Emergent will enable Stratus to leverage key areas of its telecommunications business with the addition of not only VOIP, but also video and data in the future.
