Ovum Executive Update - New Acquisitions of NETSCOUT

Ovum Issues Executive Update Highlighting Growing Strength of Tektronix Communications and Newfield Wireless, New Acquisitions of NETSCOUT


PLANO, TX – Aug. 26, 2015 – Tektronix Communications and Newfield Wireless, wholly owned subsidiaries of NETSCOUT SYSTEMS, INC., today announced leading global technology research and advisory firm Ovum has published an executive update about the growing strength created by acquisitions.

The report, entitled “Newfield Wireless's operator proposition is strengthened through acquisitions,” highlights that since Tektronix Communications acquired Newfield Wireless in December 2013, the combined company can now “jointly provide operators with end-to-end solutions. This is especially important as operators start to roll out more demanding services like VoLTE.”

NETSCOUT Co-founder, President, and CEO Anil Singhal’s industry vision was the root cause and prime mover of the merger announced on July 14, 2015 between NETSCOUT and Danaher’s Communications Business, which includes Tektronix Communications and Newfield Wireless.

This executive note is an update to Ovum’s Principal Analyst Daryl Schoolar ‘On the Radar’ report published in March 2013. In it, Schoolar highlights the increased strength of the company’s flagship TrueCall® real-time geoanalytics platform since the initial acquisition.

“Extra resources have helped improve the TrueCall product, with a new user interface, streamlined processes, and automation of some features to make TrueCall more proactive,” Schoolar writes.

About the now-global sales reach, Schoolar adds: “Previously, Newfield Wireless had been limited to targeting North American operators. Tektronix Communication's global footprint changed that view.”

"On the Radar" is part of Ovum's series of research notes that highlights up-and-coming vendors that bring innovative ideas, products, or business models to their markets. The original report and follow-up from the June 2015 executive update are both available to Ovum clients and through Tektronix Communications.

Richard Kenedi, president of service provider business at NETSCOUT, commented: “We are delighted that a leading independent research firm of Ovum’s world-class caliber has endorsed the value of our end-to-end strategy and customer propositions. Our internal collaboration has delivered beyond expectation and most importantly, our customers are reporting substantial benefit from the combined offering as a result.”
