JDSU's takeover of Trendium boosts its OSS positioning

Broadening its OSS portfolio for LTE networks, JDSU has acquired substantially all of the assets of Trendium, including its employees and technology. Trendium provides intelligence software for customer experience assurance, asset optimization and big data monetization. The acquisition closed on Dec. 10, 2013, but was only just announced. Terms of the deal were not disclosed. JDSU said Trendium's technology was included in a more comprehensive mobile assurance and analytics solution that JDSU recently sold to one of the world's top five mobile operators.

JDSU said its acquisition of Trendium secures the company's position as a provider of LTE solutions spanning the lab to the field, handset to core, and physical layer to application layer. Almost one year ago, JDSU paid $85 million cash to gain Arieso's expertise in location-aware software solutions, small cell siting and network optimization. For more, see this JDSU release.
