The purchase is centred around the Wireless Doctor, a suite of cloud-based performance management software, embedded decision logic, and apps used by service providers to support field technicians, network engineers, customer care agents, marketing personnel, and data analysts to improve the in-home Wi-Fi experience of their subscribers.
The acquisition will be used to complement and integrate with AirTies’ Remote Manager, a cloud-based optimization suite that provides real-time visibility and historical performance analysis.
“There’s a lot of synergies actually and it’s going to take several months to look at how we can mesh the two products,” Philippe Alcaras, CEO, AirTies told Broadband TV News.
“Although there is some overlap, there is not tonnes because the team has worked in aspects where we have less time to invest ourselves like predictive analyses that analyses finding smart solutions to segment and define the quality of Wi-Fi with specific metrics.”
Alcaras explained that despite confidentiality measures in place under European law the Wireless Doctor still had access to the Big Data needed to prevent engineer call outs. “We’re talking about over 100 million Wi-Fi devices in the field so you learn from that and you learn in real time. So you can apply countermeasures when need be. “
Airties will also take on the 30-strong team based in Belgium.
Terms of the deal have not been disclosed.
