Mobileum on Wednesday announced that it has acquired Convene Networks, a technology provider of integrated core network solutions for 3G/4G/5G networks.
The acquisition expands Mobileum’s core network technology footprint, extending its portfolio of 5G Core (5GC) solutions and providing commercial off-the-shelf (“COTS”) 5G-in-a-box for small carriers and private networks.
Convene Networks’ product portfolio, including ConveneGSC GTP routing and session controller, ConveneHSS home subscriber server, ConveneEIR equipment identity register, will integrate with Mobileum’s Active Intelligence portfolio and its engineering team will reinforce Mobileum’s team of core network experts.
Mobileum’s Active Intelligence platform is a leading telecom-focused analytics technology that supports roaming, network services, security, risk management, and testing. Convene Networks will enhance its core network capabilities by providing network elements needed to support a fully virtualized, secure infrastructure and by extending critical 5G core authentication, subscription management, and analytics functions. With these new capabilities, Mobileum can provide telecom operators a broader 5G network offering delivered as an integrated package, that is scalable and highly efficient, and which can be used to support small carriers and private network use cases.
This week, Mobileum also announced that it has acquired Developing Solutions, a network testing software provider that focuses on core network testing for load and lab use cases covering 3G, 4G, 5G and IP Multimedia Subsystem (IMS).
The acquisition of Developing Solutions continues Mobileum’s growth strategy, building a telecom-focused analytics platform with a robust testing infrastructure and a widespread set of network interfaces, allowing operators to optimize operational efficiency and improve customer experience as they transition to 5G and next generation networks.
