Strategically important customer wins for Ascom Network Testing

Jul 6, 2011

The Ascom Network Testing Division announces strategically important customer wins exceeding USD 7 million that reinforce its global market-leader position in benchmarking and optimization of mobile networks.

A major North American mobile network operator performing a phased deployment of LTE infrastructure has selected Ascom as one of its key suppliers for LTE drive test equipment. In the first half of this year, the operator has purchased a large volume of both new and upgraded licenses of TEMS Investigation for LTE. The same operator has also committed to a nationwide product support agreement to cover the hundreds of TEMS Investigation licenses deployed across the country.

A major infrastructure provider has selected the products TEMS Investigation and TEMS Discovery to support the Managed Service of several mobile networks across Africa. A telecom regulator in the Middle East has selected the TEMS Investigation product to measure the quality of mobile networks in their country.

A leading mobile network operator in Central and Eastern Europe has become the first client to purchase the recently launched TEMS Symphony product offering, featuring the next-generation MTP-4 hardware platform. The long-term Ascom Network Testing customer wants to ensure sufficient capacity and state-of-the-art processing power when benchmarking the quality and performance of its network, as well as its competition's.

"These customer wins provide further evidence of our ability to evolve our trusted solutions to meet network operators' test and measurement requirements during network rollouts and throughout the network life cycle", says Rikard Lundqvist, General Manager of Ascom Network Testing.
