JDSU, a provider of communications test and measurement, has entered into a definitive agreement to acquire the Network Tools business of Finisar Corporation. Network Tools is a provider of storage area network (SAN) protocol test tools, software and services. Under the terms of the agreement, JDSU will acquire the Network Tools business for approximately $40.6 million in cash, and the parties expect to close the transaction before the end of July.

The Network Tools portfolio, focused on the SAN analysis and data generation and load testing segments, specializes in a wide range of storage protocols, such as Fiber Channel, Gigabit Ethernet, 10GigE, iSCSI, SAS and SATA. Its portfolio includes Medusa Labs, which provides SAN protocol analysis and test training and services in a live, fully-built storage network environment.

The Network Tools business, currently headquartered in Sunnyvale, CA, includes more than 100 employees worldwide. Upon close of the transaction, Network Tools will form the Storage Network Test unit in the Instrument Business Division of JDSU’s Communications Test and Measurement business segment. Dave Buse will continue to lead the business, reporting to Jerry Gentile, GM of JDSU’s Instrument Business Division.
