25 Feb 2013

Networking equipment maker Cisco has completed its acquisition of mobile networking company Intucell for about US$475m in cash and retention-based incentives.

Under the deal, Cisco will receive a critical network intelligence layer to manage and optimise spectrum, coverage and capacity, and Intucell employees will be integrated into Cisco’s Service Provider Mobility Group, Cisco said.

Intucell, which is based in Ra’anana, Israel, is a provider of advanced self-optimising network software. That software is designed to enable mobile carriers to plan, configure, manage and optimise cellular networks automatically, according to real-time changing network demands.
