Global telecommunications and tech analysis firm Analysys Mason has acquired New York-based SMB ICT research company AMI-Partners in a move designed to expand its worldwide research business.

Analysys Mason says the acquisition of AMI-Partners will complement and extend its research portfolio, and combined with its extensive telecoms, media and technology research will provide “exceptional benefits in geographical reach and vertical expertise for clients worldwide”.

“We are excited to welcome AMI-Partners into the Analysys Mason family. It offers an exciting opportunity for Analysys Mason to enhance and extend its service offering into the SMB ICT industry,” said Analysys Mason chief executive Bram Moerman.

Andy Bose, founder and chairman of AMI-Partners, said, “AMI-Partners is a market leader in SMB ICT research, strategic consulting and GTM tools and has developed longstanding relationships in advising IT industry’s most influential and game-changing companies. Joining with Analysys Mason’s global brand and strong track record will enhance our product-service offering and global footprint for our valued clients as well as expanding our base in existing and new industry verticals.”

“The acquisition of AMI-Partners is strategically important and forms part of Analysys Mason’s expansion plans, strengthening and expanding extensive primary research across additional verticals, services and geographies,” said Jens Montanana, chief executive of Datatec Group, Analysys Mason’s parent company.

Last month Singapore telco Singtel’s data analytics subsidiary DataSpark and Analysys Mason signed a memorandum of understanding to develop a network planning application to help mobile operators drive revenue and optimise capital expenditure.   

The app is designed to help operators allocate capacity where most appropriate, by leveraging Dataspark’s Network CAPEX Optimiser platform to analyse datasets, including customer satisfaction scores and potential demand as well as network traffic and yield.

With the app, operators can choose the best location for new cellular sites or upgrade existing network infrastructure using insights gleaned from the data.

Ying Shao Wei, chief operating officer of DataSpark, said the app “could be a game-changer for telcos in that it can help them build their networks more efficiently and enhance their customer engagement”.

“By using the app to distill and analyse datasets, including past customer transactions, in a non-invasive manner, operators can customise products and services for specific customer segments to generate new revenue streams."

Now’s the Time for 400G Migration

The optical fibre community is anxiously awaiting the benefits that 400G capacity per wavelength will bring to existing and future fibre optic networks.

Nearly every business wants to leverage the latest in digital offerings to remain competitive in their respective markets and to provide support for fast and ever-increasing demands for data capacity. 400G is the answer.

Initial challenges are associated with supporting such project and upgrades to fulfil the promise of higher-capacity transport.

The foundation of optical networking infrastructure includes coherent optical transceivers and digital signal processing (DSP), mux/demux, ROADM, and optical amplifiers, all of which must be able to support 400G capacity.

With today’s proprietary power-hungry and high cost transceivers and DSP, how is migration to 400G networks going to be a viable option?

PacketLight's next-generation standardised solutions may be the answer. Click below to read the full article.
