CommAgility acquires LTE software developer MIMOon
Combining hardware and software to deliver integrated wireless solutions
Loughborough, UK and Duisburg, Germany - CommAgility Ltd,a developer of signal processing and RF hardware for wireless and other applications, today announced that it has completed the acquisition of MIMOon GmbH, a software vendor for LTE small cells and terminals.
Edward Young, Managing Director at CommAgility, said, "We expect the next stage of our growth and development to be through the addition of a complete system offering, and acquiring MIMOon gives us the software IP and capabilities we need to enable this."
"CommAgility and MIMOon have already been working together, including several joint customer projects, and this acquisition means that we can provide fully integrated hardware and software solutions for LTE applications - saving time and money for wireless OEMs, and removing their integration risk," continued Young. "For our customers working on LTE solutions, MIMOon's proven software products are an enormous advantage. In addition, MIMOon's engineering expertise can be applied to more specialised wireless applications such as test or surveillance, or those that require non-standard features including support for larger cells and faster travel speeds."
MIMOon's mi!SmallCellPHY and mi!SmallCellSTACK software has already been integrated with various CommAgility hardware modules, creating a complete LTE physical layer solution.
MIMOon's staff will continue to be based at the company's office in Duisburg, Germany, and will remain focussed on developing LTE PHY and stack software. CommAgility's UK staff will keep their current focus on developing signal processing and RF hardware, and associated software.
Existing and future customers for MIMOon software or CommAgility hardware can be assured that they will continue to be fully supported in the future.
