VIAVI buys Expandiumto complete virtualized assurance portfolio
Viavi Solutions Inc., has announced that it has acquired Expandium, a provider of core network monitoring and assurance solutions powered by big data, based in Saint-Herblain, France.

The Expandium  acquisition by VIAVI augments leading network assurance portfolio with a cloud-native virtualized offering, in alignment with virtualization initiatives at Tier-1 service providers worldwide.

In order to manage operations and customer experience across generations of technology, between wireless and wireline networks, and into new domains such as IoT and V2X, carriers are moving away from proprietary hardware to software-defined services running on off-the-shelf servers. The network itself becomes disaggregated, no longer a topology of discrete nodes, but a more dynamic and shapeable environment which can adapt to rapidly changing demand. The entire ecosystem supporting the network must evolve accordingly, replacing hardware-based solutions with containerized virtual machines which can respond dynamically as the network shifts.

As VIAVI continues to virtualize its NITRO Mobile portfolio of core and RAN assurance products/services, the company's acquisition of Expandium adds cloud-native, microservices-based, and 5G-ready mobile core assurance technologies. Expandium uses advanced techniques such as machine learning, stream processing and pattern detection within a platform that is vendor-independent and can connect to heterogeneous data sources, offering analytics and insights for network monitoring, troubleshooting, fraud detection, and more.
