The overall sales of Accedian grew by 25% in 2015. The company attributed this strong global momentum to “a series of significant operator contract wins. This includes new deployments with four of the world’s top service providers.
Accedian helps telecom network operators get end-to-end network performance visibility, resulting in control over the best possible user experience. This is highly crucial in today’s data driven world where network performance has become extremely valuable.
In 2015, Accedian publicly announced major deals with companies like SKT, T-Mobile and Cox Business. In December, Accedian entered into a new partnership with Telefonica, one of the largest private telecommunications companies in the world with operations in Europe, Asia, North America and South America. Four other tier one deals were made in 2015, but have yet to be formally announced.
“Our progress over the past two years serves to validate our strategic approach to maximizing performance across open, multi-vendor networks,” said Accedian CEO Patrick Ostiguy. “Operators around the world continue to insist on fully virtualized multi-vendor environments that make them more competitive and give them the flexibility and agility to react to dynamic network challenges.”
Accedian credits its exceptional growth to rigorous global operator focus on quality of experience (QoE) as a key competitive differentiator. In addition, leading network vendors have faced novel market challenges in recent past, including market consolidation, resulting ongoing product fragmentation and complex migration paths to virtual solution portfolios. To get away from these challenges, many telecom network operators have turned to a fully virtualized multi-vendor approach—which has been crucial to Accedian’s success.
“Advancements in mobile technology serve to increase the expectations of mobile users which the supporting networks must meet and exceed. Our technology and approach is central to meeting this objective and is the catalyst to our current and ongoing success,” added Ostiguy.
