CommScope, a global leader in infrastructure solutions for
communications networks, has sold its wireless test and measurement
product line to Anite plc, a leading provider of solutions to the
international wireless industry. Through its Network Testing business
based in Oulu, Finland, Anite supplies test and measurement tools under
the Nemo product brand.
Under terms of the sale, Anite acquires from CommScope’s Andrew
Solutions the Invex® wireless test and measurement product portfolio,
existing customer commitments, and approximately 20 CommScope employees
who directly work for the Invex product line. The remainder of those
employees who previously supported the Invex product line will remain
with CommScope’s Andrew Solutions. Other terms of the sale, which closed
January 7, are not being disclosed.
“Invex products are in use around the world by many wireless operators,”
said John Baker, vice president and general manager, Andrew Network
Solutions. “In a consolidating test and measurement industry, we are
confident that combining Invex with the strong Anite testing solutions
will provide even greater options and stronger support for our customers
in the future.”
“The Invex product line is a strategic add-on that will enhance the
market position of Anite, a leading provider of test solutions for 2G,
3G and LTE wireless technologies,” said Jukka Honkila, managing director
of Anite’s Network Testing business. Anite plans to integrate the
acquired Andrew measurement tools as part of the Nemo portfolio in the
near future, thus offering one of the strongest and most versatile tool
platforms available for Anite’s and Andrew’s customers.
“Andrew’s measurement tools are an excellent addition to our already
strong Nemo product portfolio,” said Honkila. “With the new wider
product range, we are well positioned to address the broad demands of
wireless networks’ measurements from standard KPI collection to fully
fledged benchmarking and advanced post analysis.”
