Oracle on Wednesday said it was going to scoop up Convergin , an Israeli startup specializing in software that helps telcos extend their services across multiple networks.

"As communications service providers transition from legacy telephony networks to next-generation networks, the combination of Oracle and Convergin will accelerate new service innovation while reducing network complexity and cost," said Bhaskar Gorti , senior vice president and general manager, Oracle Communications.

Oracle said it is still looking over Covergin's product roadmap and plans to update customers at a later date. Convergin's customers include T-Mobile and SaaskTel.

Financial terms of the deal were not disclosed.
