Spirent is capitalising on the new funds through the acquisition of test Lab Automation business of NetScout Systems, a company based in New Jersey, USA.

A spokesperson for the company said: ''The acquisition of this business brings important intellectual property that enables us to add physical layer switching capability, critical to configuration and connectivity in automated labs, to our existing lab automation software platform.

''The financial impact of this small technology business is not material. The strategy to diversify outside of telecommunication is critical at this time, where uncertainty and delays to customer orders continue.

''This new contract win in the Financial Services sector, will provide an excellent reference point to advance our busy pipeline for other similar customers.''
