Processor maker Intel has acquired Barefoot Networks, a company that designs and produces programmable network switch silicon, systems and software, for an unspecified amount.

The company said in a statement that the acquisition would support its focus on gaining a leadership position in the end-to-end cloud networking and infrastructure market.

Barefoot is based in Santa Clara, Californiam and Intel said its staff would add expertise in cloud network architectures, P4-programmable high-speed data paths, switch silicon development, P4 compilers, driver software, network telemetry and computational networking.

Intel executive vice-president and general manager of the Data Centre Group, said: "Most important, this is one of the most talented and experienced teams in this domain in the industry.

"We look forward to welcoming Dr Craig Barratt and his team to the Intel family once the transaction closes, which is expected to be in the third quarter of 2019."
