March 29, 2018 // By Nick Flaherty
Scottish R&D test set developer Calnex Solutions has bought JAR Technologies in Belfast, Northern Ireland, to expand its expertise in wide area networking.

The acquisition, which is for an undisclosed amount, increases the Calnex product portfolio to include JAR’s portfolio of multi-port, multi-user Network Emulators complementing Calnex’s existing Attero product line of network emulators.

JAR Technologies supplies the JAR:Emulate product range of scalable Network Emulators supporting interface rates from 100BT to 40GbE. These are used in a wide variety of networks and applications including Mobile, WAN verification, Data Centre relocation, Military/Security, Smart-Grid Utilities, Healthcare and Broadcast Communications as well as Video Conferencing Communications.

“SD-WAN, Cloud/OTT and Data Centers are hot new application areas for Network Emulation,” said Tommy Cook, CEO of Calnex Solutions.  “These application areas require products with flexibility and high port count. The acquisition of JAR Technologies enables Calnex to effectively address these key applications as the JAR:Emulate product line provides this flexibility with its scalable, multi-port, multi-user platform.”

“The Calnex acquisition of JAR Technologies enables the JAR:Emulate product line to reach a much broader range of customers and applications” said Ryan McAnlis, CEO of JAR Technologies.
