Vocera grabs $12 million

Vocera Communications said Tuesday that it has raised $12 million in its third round of funding, bringing the Cupertino, Calif.-based company's total funding to $20.1 million. Venrock Associates led the round, and RRE Ventures, Vanguard Ventures, Avalon Ventures and Ideo contributed. Vocera was founded in 2000 and raised $1 million in its first round and $7.1 million in a second round. The company makes software and hardware that provides an instant voice communication system for wireless LANs (local area networks) that run on 802.11b, or Wi-Fi, technology. Vocera's software runs on networking gear in buildings or campuses and enables voice communication between individuals who wear its badges. Vocera expects its product to ship this fall and is targeting hospitals, retail stores and other businesses with mobile workers that need to communicate.
