Strengthens its position in multi-technology, multi-vendor, Self-Organising Networks (SONs) and OSS-based network optimisation
Ericsson has acquired Optimi firm, a US-Spanish telecommunications vendor providing products and services within the networks optimisation and management sector with focus on operations-support-systems (OSS) based optimisation services.
Optimi provides mobile carriers with automated design, optimisation and management offerings and has blended innovative technology with practical know-how that enables operators to improve network performance whilst at the same time reducing capex and opex in 2G, 3G and 4G networks.
Through this acquisition, Ericsson strengthens its position in multi-technology, multi-vendor, Self-Organising Networks (SONs) and OSS-based network optimisation and improves its global capabilities to deliver value-added optimisation services.
The acquisition brings in approximately 200 highly skilled professionals and a complete portfolio of services and tools into Ericsson.
Ericsson business unit global services head and senior vice president Magnus Mandersson said the Optimi portfolio complements their existing OSS portfolio, which today is largely deployed among networks managed by Ericsson.
