Lucent has sold off its computer telephony products unit to communications circuit boards developer, Booktrout Technology, for $29.4 million.
The Lucent unit is part of the Octel messaging business the telecomms equipment giant purchased 18 months ago. It develops voice boards for service providers and organisations to build voicemail systems.
Booktrout already supplies circuit cards for fax and data broadcast.
All of the unit's 100 employees will move to Booktrout. Lucent will retain the rest of Octel which develops voice messaging systems.
