The move will add a Service Logic Execution Environment (Slee) to the Linux firm's portfolio.
Slee complements J2EE to enable the convergence of voice, video and data in next-generation intelligent applications in the telecoms industry with call set-up transactions as many as 10 times the number of web data transactions per second.
Mobicents is a scalable event-driven application server with a component model and fault-tolerant execution environment. It is the first open source platform certified for JSLEE 1.0 compliance.
Red Hat said that it intends to develop a communications platform that integrates Mobicents with the broader Red Hat middleware offerings.
"JSLEE is an important emerging industry standard for event-driven architecture that is gaining its early traction in the telecoms industry," said Yefim Natis, a vice president and distinguished analyst at Gartner.
"An open source offering in this space extends the available options for users looking into event-driven computing and architecture."
