Intel has invested in Swedish software tools developer Envox Group in an effort to boost its converged voice and data platform.
Envox's rapid development software tools are used to create computer telephony integration applications, and the chip giant hopes the investment will help promote CT Media, the computer telephony platform it inherited from its acquisition of Dialogic last June.
The Swedish developer's communications server software enables companies to build a range of applications including unified messaging, ecommerce and web automation on Microsoft Windows NT or Windows 2000 platforms.
Intel declined to provide financial details of the investment, but John Hull, director of Intel's Communications Fund which backed the deal, said the company typically makes minority equity investments of less than $10m.
Intel set up the $200m fund last September and has so far invested $25m in companies developing products based around CT Media. Other recipients include communications software developers Netcentrex and Mediasoft.
