TEOCO Enters RAN Optimization Market Via New Acquisition

TEOCO, the assurance and analytics business headquartered in Virgina, USA, has announced the acquisition of Schema Ltd, a company specializing in Radio Access Network (RAN) optimization and analytics. The purchase price was not disclosed. You can read the press release here.

Schema is understood to be specialists at collecting data from elements like Base Transceiver Stations and Radio Network Controllers. With operators projecting an increasing challenge to satisfy the data demands of their customers within the finite limits of available radio spectrum, TEOCO is positioning itself to combine RAN data with other information they already analyse for customers. The combination will deliver a more comprehensive view of how to improve network efficiency. In the press release, TEOCO boss Atul Jain emphasized both the data synergies and a continuation of his strategy to expand TEOCO’s geographical reach. He said:

Merging Schema with TEOCO’s Assurance and Analytics solutions provides unmatched potential to optimize both the network and business performance for our customers. Similar to our 2010 acquisition of TTI, Schema expands TEOCO’s product portfolio and customer footprint, and dramatically expands our market presence in Latin America and Asia.
