Mavenir Turns Ulticom OEM to Acquisition

Two years of OEM relations (see "Ulticom DSC Deployed Through Mavenir OEM" - here) turned into an acquisition. Mavenir announced that it has "signed a definitive agreement to acquire Ulticom, Inc., an industry leader in telecom signaling solutions. The acquisition is subject to customary closing conditions"

Ulticom has other OEM relations - see "Major OEM Deal to Ulticom's DSC in China" - here. 4 years ago, it was acquired by a private-equity firm Platinum Equity LLC for about $90M  (here and "Platinum Equity To Sell Ulticom To Mavenir Systems" - here).

"Through this acquisition, Mavenir enhances its portfolio of next generation software products and solutions to include a scalable, virtualized Diameter Signaling Controller (DSC), an increasingly critical network element which efficiently scales mobile operator networks and securely provides interoperable 4G LTE and Voice over LTE (VoLTE) services.

Ulticom is a leading provider of telecom signaling solutions enabling the global transformation to 4G LTE, with key Diameter solutions deployed in ten tier one carrier networks globally [Entel], two of which are among the world’s top ten Mobile Network Operators (MNOs). Mavenir has previously partnered with Ulticom to resell its Diameter signaling solutions to five tier one mobile operator customers globally".
