Bowen Advisors Serves as Financial Advisor to Ulticom on Sale to Mavenir
BOSTON, February 12, 2015 – Bowen Advisors is pleased to announce that it provided sellside M&A advisory services to Ulticom on its recent sale to Mavenir Systems. Ulticom is an industry leader in telecom signaling solutions and was a portfolio company of Platinum Equity. Mavenir is a leading provider of software-based networking solutions.
The acquisition enhances Mavenir’s product portfolio, adding Ulticom’s virtualized Diameter Signaling Controller (DSC), an increasingly important element in 4G LTE networks. Ulticom’s DSC is deployed in 10 Tier 1 carrier networks, including 2 of the world’s top 10 mobile network operators.
“Ulticom operated at the intersection of two important trends in the networking industry,” said Paul Bowen, President of Bowen Advisors. “First, the ‘signaling storm’ created by the proliferation of smartphones and other devices has exacerbated the need for Diameter signaling solutions in 4G LTE networks. Second, the move towards virtualized network environments has made software-only solutions critical for network operators. We look forward to continuing to provide M&A services for innovative companies that are reshaping the communications industry.”
