Microsoft Corp. is buying Affirmed Networks, a cloud platform provider for 5G, for an undisclosed amount.

Microsoft announced the deal on its website Thursday. It didn't release the deal's terms.

"This acquisition will allow us to evolve our work with the telecommunications industry, building on our secure and trusted cloud platform for operators," Microsoft said on its website.

Affirmed, based in Massachusetts, a day earlier said its board named the company's chief operating officer and president, Anand Krishnamurthy, as Affirmed's chief executive. Hassan Ahmed, the company's previous CEO, is still chairman of Affirmed's board.
