Actix, a wireless network technology provider, has completed its merger of Actix Ltd. and Radioplan GmbH, an automated network optimization software provider.
Radioplan was first acquired by Actix in February 2006, but the complete merging of operations is now finalized, Actix reported. Germany-based Radioplan will now operate in Europe, the United States and Asia as Actix GmbH.
“Minimizing the total cost of running a radio access network is a hot topic for mobile operators, and is driving the trend towards network sharing that we are seeing in several maturing markets. But figuring out how to go about a shared network implementation is a highly complex task, with multiple overlapping technologies and requirements that demands an accurate, reliable solution,” said Chris Larmour, chief marketing officer at Actix.
“Mobile operators are increasingly turning to automatic network optimization techniques provided by Actix to deliver the improved operational efficiency a shared network can offer, while also significantly enhancing customer experience and earnings potential. By combining the Actix and Radioplan research teams, we have created a strong development and engineering team that can meet this demand and continue to provide an industry leading suite of optimization systems,” Larmour added.
