Acme Packet's gain is Russell index's biggest

Acme Packet Inc.’s gain of 20 percent gave it the biggest increase in the Russell 2000 index. Quarterly earnings and revenue at the maker of devices to transmit phone calls and video exceeded analyst estimates, according to data compiled by Bloomberg. Acme Packet says it is the leader in so-called session border control solutions, which enable “delivery of interactive communications — voice, video, and multimedia sessions — and data services across IP network borders.’’
