Analysys Mason report reveals AIRCOM remains the number one player in a growing market
Leatherhead UK, 27 April 2012 – AIRCOM International today announces that, according to an Analysys Mason study, it has retained its place as the leading independent global player in the growing network planning and optimisation software market. The viewpoint study reveals that AIRCOM currently accounts for 18% of the overall mobile planning and optimisation software market, valued by Analysys Mason at US $275 million.
The total market for mobile and fixed network planning and optimisation solutions is valued by Analysys Mason at US $488 million. AIRCOM is named by Analysys Mason as the overall market leader for both technologies with a 12 per cent share in a rapidly growing market. The study was finalised prior to AIRCOM acquiring Symena, the leading global network optimisation company using automatic cell planning (ACP) and SON. This acquisition further extends AIRCOM’s existing market share in this space.
“Retaining our number one position underlines our commitment to network planning and optimisation technology and consultancy best practice,” said Steve Bowker, CTO, AIRCOM International. “It is a position we intend to consolidate through sustained investment in mobile network optimisation technology innovation. Our recent Symena acquisition is evidence of this, as we look to grow our advanced optimisation capabilities to capitalise on growing market opportunities.”
