In a significant development in the telecom platform deployment industry, SANBlaze (News - Alert) Technology, a provider of storage, networking and multifunction solutions for embedded systems, has acquired Diversified Technology Inc.’s (DTI) AdvancedTCA 10G switch product family.

"Integrating the DTI (News - Alert) ATCA switch line into our existing set of products and services signifies our next step in meeting our goal of providing greater value to our customers and continued commitment to the xTCA market,” said Steve Munroe, president, SANBlaze Technology, in a statement.
