Motorola to buy Orthogon Systems

Motorola signed a definitive agreement to acquire British wireless device maker Orthogon Systems for an undisclosed sum. The company already had a minority stake in Orthogon through its venture capital investment arm, Motorola Ventures, and has distributed Orthogon's products through its Canopy business since 2004. Orthogon's products include Ethernet bridges, which are devices used to connect LANs. Motorola is also set to release its quarterly results at the close of business today.
