IBM is acquiring wireless network performance management company Vallent to expand its systems management offering to firms.
Vallent is a supplier of network performance monitoring and service management software to wireless service providers worldwide.
Vallent’s software helps service providers manage the performance of their network infrastructure through monitoring and reporting problem areas such as dropped calls and traffic bottlenecks.
It also helps operators improve wireless service quality and identify network problems before they affect a customer’s experience.
Financial details of the acquisition have not been revealed. IBM said it expected that the deal would be completed in the first quarter of next year.
Vallent’s technology will be added to the IBM Tivoli Software Netcool portfolio.
