("Tranzeo"), an industry leader in designing, manufacturing and distributing high-speed wireless broadband communication systems globally, today announced that it has completed the acquisition of all of the assets of Sensoria Corporation ("Sensoria") relating to Sensoria's wireless mesh networks technology for broadband applications. The assets acquired included Sensoria's patents and intellectual property. In addition, Tranzeo has hired most of Sensoria's employees.

Sensoria's wireless mesh networks technology is purposely designed for voice, video and data and enables the delivery of wireless mesh solutions to mission critical environments for wireless commercial broadband, public safety and the military.

These employees have substantial and unique expertise on the design and deployment of wireless mesh networks technology.
The Sensoria EnRoute family of wireless mesh network equipment and network management software for mission-critical voice, video and data applications will be added to the growing Tranzeo product portfolio.
