InfoVista announced a binding agreement to acquire Ascom’s TEMS business.

The TEMS Portfolio is a network testing, monitoring and optimization platform. Deployed by the world’s top 20 mobile network operators, major infrastructure suppliers and network engineering services providers, TEMS solutions monitor wireless networks and assure quality of service while optimizing performance.

The growing demand for high-speed wireless services presents increasing CapEx and OpEx challenges to mobile network operators who need to maximize the potential of their networks whilst implementing new technologies such as LTE, Small Cells, VoLTE and ultimately 5G. InfoVista’s acquisition of TEMS will strengthen its ability to offer innovative solutions for mobile network performance analytics, indoor network design and optimization, and active service testing.

InfoVista was recently acquired by the private equity investment firm Apax Partners, with the stated aim of establishing InfoVista as the undisputed world leader in the network performance orchestration software market. The acquisition of TEMS will be a step towards that goal. It will see InfoVista nearly double in size, with approximately USD $200M in revenue and improve the group’s global presence, particularly in the USA and in Asia.

The acquisition of TEMS will complement the recent acquisitions of Mentum, Aexio and Ipanema, broadening the amount of network data and intelligence that can be used to improve network, applications and user experience.

“TEMS is a well-established and well-respected business that already helps most of the world’s largest mobile network operators to manage and optimize the capacity and quality of their wireless networks,” said Philippe Ozanian, CEO, InfoVista. “By bringing the TEMS portfolio into InfoVista, we are creating the most scalable, powerful and flexible platform for network performance orchestration to CSPs, mobile operators and enterprises.”
