AudioCodes Ltd., which develops technology for Internet phone calls, said profit grew in the fourth quarter because of its ties with telecommunications companies that raised spending on advanced networks. Net income rose to $3.9 million, or nine cents a share, from $2.6m., or six cents, a year ago, the company said in a statement. Revenue climbed to $30.6m. from $25.2m.
