supplier of service optimization and revenue generation solutions for fixed and
mobile data networks worldwide has inked a definitive agreement to acquire

The acquisition will enable Allot to further enhance its

intelligent network services platform,” said Rami Hadar, president and CEO

providers to manage the ever-increasing flood of data traffic while
significantly improving the quality of experience for each individual
subscriber. We look forward to growing together as one company,” said Ortiva’s
CEO, Marc Zionts.


Ortiva’s solution has been deployed at two Tier 1 mobile
service providers to date.


The terms of the acquisition were not disclosed. The
acquisition is subject to the satisfaction of certain closing conditions, and
is expected to close during the second quarter of 2012.
