Telecom network vendor Ericsson will acquire NodePrime, a San Francisco-based technology firm, to enhance its presence in software-defined infrastructure business.

NodePrime’s infrastructure management platform is designed to support the command and control of the ecosystem of components in datacenters.

Ericsson did not reveal the financial terms of cash deal to acquire NodePrime. James Malachowski is the co-founder and CEO of NodePrime.

NodePrime’s software platform, integrated into the Ericsson Hyperscale Datacenter System 8000, enables discovery, analysis and automated configuration of existing and new data center hardware platforms – allowing datacenters to become hyperscale and adopt distributed infrastructure.

Ericsson, which competes with Nokia, ZTE and Huawei, will reduce sourcing risk and secure control of roadmap direction and acceleration.

NodePrime’s software platform enables any datacenter to migrate to hyperscale infrastructure by starting from where they are. The software platform represents a power shift for telecom service providers to make data-driven decisions about how they purchase, scale and create their ideal infrastructures.
