03 February 2014 | Sophie Donoghue


Network optimisation firm JDSU has announced its acquisition of Trendium, a real-time intelligence software provider.

JDSU said the deal will allow it to launch solutions for customer experience assurance, which improves productivity and profitability for converged networks.

The new solution helps operators to identify performance problems. The company reported that analyst firm Analysys Mason found that service quality issues are responsible for 40% of customer churn.

"Technology is evolving at a rapid pace, making mergers and acquisitions an important part of JDSU's growth strategy as a diversified technology company," said Tom Waechter, CEO of JDSU.

In March 2013, JDSU also acquired geo-location and RAN planning company Arieso for $85 million. The deal looked to strengthening JDSU’s deployment of small cells and address challenges of limited spectrum capacity.
