Nokia to Acquire Eden Rock for SON

Nokia Networks has agreed to acquire Eden Rock Communications, a developer of multivendor, Self Organizing Network (SON) solutions. Financial terms were not disclosed.

Eden Rock’s Eden-NET is a centralized, multivendor, SON solution for GSM, UMTS and LTE networks. It provides an open framework with a Software Development Kit (SDK) that accelerates the creation, customization and deployment of custom SON Modules. Additionally, Eden Rock offers its rich toolbox of off-the-shelf SON Modules, which have been proven at-scale across diverse networks globally. The company has 26 issued and 70+ pending patents.

Peter Patomella, Vice President, CEM and OSS, Nokia Networks, said: “The size of the optimization and SON market is expected to exceed 5 billion Euros globally by 2018. With our combination of capabilities, we will effectively address a key customer pain point: efficient optimization of heterogeneous networks in a multivendor environment. By combining our products, we will accelerate the delivery of a compelling solution that offers powerful automated network optimization capabilities that achieve best-in-class performance and customer experience.”

Charles Immendorf, CEO, Eden Rock, said: “A massive appetite exists among operators for a proven SON solution with disruptive technologies, open framework and carrier-class capabilities. Via this acquisition, Nokia Networks brings complementary SON functionality, a renowned reputation for wireless excellence and an ascending market presence to Eden-NET. We welcome the opportunity to work with Nokia and together aim to establish an insurmountable lead within the global SON space.”

As a part of this acquisition process, Eden Rock will spin-off a new company with its spectrum sharing solutions, technology and patents.
