2015. Cisco acquires cloud VoIP platform Tropo



Cisco announced its intent to buy Tropo, a Twilio-like communications platform for adding telephony, messaging and other communications tools to any application. Tropo's APIs are making it simpler for developers to add a range of functionality to applications very quickly and one function developers love to include is an ability to communicate. Twilio is probably the best known of the communications APIs, but buying Tropo gives Cisco immediate access to a community of more than 200,000 developers (according to numbers provided by Cisco). Tropo offers its product for free to developers, and then makes money from each communication made via the Tropo platform. This purchase gives Cisco a platform to attract developers to its wider ecosystem, and that’s important for a mature company like Cisco, trying to avoid the brutality of disruption.
