NSN to acquire Apertio for Subscriber Data Platforms

Nokia Siemens Networks agreed to acquire Apertio, a provider of open real-time subscriber data platforms and applications, for around EUR 140 million. The deal is expected to close in the first quarter of 2008.


Apertio will provide the new generation architecture and open real-time subscriber data platform for Nokia Siemens Networks' portfolio.
Nokia Siemens Networks said the acquisition will enable it to build on its position in the converged core.


Apertio's software application suite, Apertio One, delivers a single, open, subscriber-centric architecture for current and new generation networks. The suite includes Apertio One-NDS (Network Directory Server), Apertio One-HLR (Home Location Register) and Apertio One-HSS (Home Subscriber Server). The company is privately held, and headquartered in Bristol, UK, with offices in Chicago, Bangkok, Kuala Lumpur, and Beijing.


Apertio's customers include Orange, T-Mobile, Vodafone and O2. Once the deal has closed, Apertio is expected to form a new business line, to be headed by Apertio CEO, Paul Magelli, within Nokia Siemens Networks' Converged Core business unit.http://www.nokiasiemensnetworks.comhttp://www.apertio.com
