Telecom Tech Outlook | Monday, June 28, 2021

Developing Solutions is a long-term partner of Mobileum in the field of testing. This acquisition will allow the two companies to develop their partnership and integrate Developing Solutions' dsTest product with Mobileum's active test solution, SITE.

FREMONT, CA: Mobileum, a leading global provider dedicated to analytics solutions for network and roaming services, security, risk management, testing, and control, announced that it has acquired Developing Solutions, a network test software provider focused on core network testing for lab and load use cases covering 3G, 4G, 5G, and IP Multimedia Subsystem (IMS).

The acquisition of Developing Solutions continues with Mobileum's growth strategy, under which an analytics platform is built that is focused on telecommunications and that has a robust test infrastructure and a generalized set of network interfaces, allowing Operators to optimize operational efficiency and improve customer experience as the transition to 5G and next-generation networks approaches.

"The acquisition of Developing Solutions is the natural step in the evolution of Mobileum, as we continue to consolidate the market and build an actionable analytics platform together with a complete test infrastructure that is based on supporting telecom operators in their journey. With the advent of 5G, operators must adapt to market changes faster, while maintaining the highest level of service performance. For this reason, it is increasingly important that operators have testing embedded core that transcend the 5G ecosystem and the power to control data performance within a context of increasingly complex, automated and dynamic networks, "explained Bobby Srinivasan, CEO of Mobileum.

Mobileum has continually increased its suite of analytics offerings in the years following its acquisition in 2016 through Audax Private Equity. Building on its 19 years of leadership in roaming, Mobileum drew on its knowledge of mobile telecommunications to launch its platform dedicated to 'Active Intelligence' that allows obtaining actionable information in real-time in the domains of roaming, testing, fraud, and security.

"As the launch of standalone 5G networks approaches, new IoT use cases and the network division continue to accelerate, the ability of telecom operators to fully automate the testing of new services and applications will be critical in order to grow business agility and support new revenue streams. By joining forces with Mobileum, we will provide our customers with a unified and fully integrated solution that encompasses all of their testing needs - integrating from the lab to the live network. "John Minnis, CEO, and Founder of Developing Solutions.

Developing Solutions is a long-term partner of Mobileum in the field of testing. This acquisition will allow the two companies to develop their partnership and integrate Developing Solutions' dsTest product with Mobileum's active test solution, SITE. The combined solution will provide telecom operators complete test and verification solutions for the entire network and service lifecycle, spanning from laboratory to production.

The integration will enable automated testing to be launched through a Continuous Integration and Deployment ("CI / CD") environment, providing extensive 5G core emulation capabilities, API testing, and 5G test automation capabilities. The combination of the two companies will serve to facilitate the development and implementation of new tests, thereby improving flexibility and allowing users to cope with any 5G test scenario, leading to faster service launches and fewer lower operating costs.

This acquisition will also strengthen Mobileum's engineering team and improve its skills and experience in the 5G Core network, expanding its capacity to be able to solve some of the most complex challenges that arise in the core of the network and thus serve its more than 900 clients spread all over the world.
