The following video is part of our "Motley Fool Conversations" series, in which senior technology analyst Eric Bleeker and Chief Technology Officer Jeremy Phillips discuss topics across the investing world.
In today's edition, Eric talks about one growth stock that should pique investors' attention. While niche networking plays like F5 Networks and Riverbed (before its recent poor guidance) have run up, companies levered to the telecom equipment sector are stagnating. Eric says this could create an opportunity for investors looking at Acme Packet. The company creates a product, session border controllers, that is central to next generation data networks as they facilitate real-time communication. While Acme is trading down today on the back of slumping telecom spending, Eric believes in the long-term future of the company and its technology.
Acme Packet is just one of the many companies set to soar as the mobile revolution roars.
