Mavenir Systems, a provider of mobile infrastructure offerings for LTE operators, has announced the acquisition of privately-held Airwide Solutions, a provider of mobile messaging offerings.
Through the acquisition, Mavenir expects to expand its global force, which will be capable of enabling mobile operators to transform their core network and launch converged voice, video and messaging services over LTE.
Under the agreement, Airwide’s employees and product portfolio will be fully integrated into Mavenir. The combined company is expected to deliver a portfolio of LTE offerings to Airwide customers across each of the major regions of the world.
Mavenir Systems president and CEO Pardeep Kohli said that with the acquisition, the company will strengthen its already advanced product portfolio and will be well positioned to support global mobile operators in their evolution to 4G networks.
"Our increased global presence and our combined experience will instill a greater confidence in our customers as they rely on Mavenir to launch innovative LTE services quickly and cost effectively," Kohli said.
"We look forward to helping our combined customers in their transition to LTE with products such as our recently announced trio of Voice over LTE (VoLTE) offerings."
