MYCOM buys OSI to create OSS powerhouse

NICE, France--MYCOM Software Business revealed at TM Forum Live here on Tuesday that it has acquired OSI to create a new powerhouse in the OSS service assurance market, combining performance and fault management services targeted at communications services providers.

The acquisition, which was backed by private investment company Clearlake Capital Group, brings together two well-established businesses in adjacent sectors of the telecoms OSS service assurance market.

MYCOM provides end-to-end multi-domain service and network performance management with its NIMS-PrOptima platform, and OSI provides umbrella fault and service impact management with its NetExpert platform.

"Today we have made a significant step forward in our ability to provide our customers with advanced solutions that help them meet their business objectives rapidly and efficiently," said Siamak Sarbaz, MYCOM group chairman and founder.

"The combined MYCOM/OSI product portfolio, our continued commitment to significant R&D investment in Service Assurance software product innovation, and our enlarged combined customer base across wireless and wireline providers will enable us to better serve our customers and meet our growth goals," Sarbaz added.

Common to both companies' product strategies is the management of multi-vendor, multi-technology, multi-domain network equipment elements within a unified system. In addition, MYCOM noted that both companies' platforms are highly scalable and flexible, embedding telecoms-specific capabilities and automation.
