Radioplan officially becomes Actix GmbH, completing the Actix automated optimization suite of tools
London, 24th September 2007 - Actix, the recognized global leader for systems that enhance mobile network customer experience while reducing the total cost of ownership, today announced the completion of the merger of Actix Limited and Radioplan GmbH, a Dresden-based provider of automated network optimization software with customers in Europe, USA and Asia. The merger sees Radioplan become Actix GmbH and fully completes the Actix automatic optimization suite.
Radioplan was acquired by Actix in February 2006, and the combined products and services provide mobile operators and their network equipment vendors with a comprehensive solution for performance optimization that will enable significant cost reduction in the deployment and operation of today's 3G networks.
"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, Actix. "Mobile operators are increasingly turning to automatic network optimisation 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 optimisation systems."
