Dialogic is a communications technology company that provides telecom infrastructure products and solutions to service providers and enterprise. It was founded in 1983, and is headquartered in Parsippany, New Jersey. Dialogic products are sold directly to service providers, and application developers, as well as through a large network of distributors, resellers and partners, and supplied to OEMs.

History[edit]

Dialogic was founded in 1983 in Parsippany, New Jersey. The company was bought by Intel in 1999[1] and was run as the Media & Signaling Division. In October 2006, Eicon bought the Media & Signaling Division of Intel[2] and then changed its name to Dialogic.

Since the formation of the new Dialogic, other competitors in the same industry have been acquired and merged into the company, including NMS Communications[3] and Cantata.[4] The latter was itself a collection of companies including Brooktrout and the Excel Switching Corporation.[5][6]

In May 2010, Dialogic announced a merger with San Jose, California-based Veraz Networks,[7] a company specializing in softswitch and compression technology.[8] The resulting company would retain the name Dialogic. That same year, Dialogic moved its headquarters to Milpitas, California.

On November 24, 2014, Dialogic was acquired by Novacap TMT IV, L.P., a Canadian private equity firm. They moved the headquarters back to Parsippany, New Jersey.

Products[edit]

Dialogic products include media servers, gateways, and boards; softswitches, diameter signaling controller, session border controllers, signaling stacks and software, fax boards and FoIP software, and bandwidth optimization solutions for communications service providers (CSPs), enterprise solution providers, and application developers. There are also products serving legacy markets like X.25 (Eiconcard).

They have been positioned as Visionary in the Magic Quadrant for their Session Border Controllers twice in 2012 and 2013.[11][12]
