Altobridge has acquired ADC’s portfolio of GSM base station and switching products. Terms of the transaction were not disclosed.

“The sale of our GSM base station and switching technology to
Altobridge is a positive development for our respective customers,
employees, shareowners and companies,” said Dick Parran, president of
Network Solutions business unit for ADC.

The ADC GSM base station and switching product portfolio supports
applications such as remote wireless and small national networks, as
well as government, emergency and private network communications. These
products complement Altobridge’s innovations in several markets, say
the companies, including its fully managed service business for meeting
the growing communication needs of emerging markets, and solutions for
optimizing voice and data transmission for mobile network operators
(MNOs).

As part of the transaction, Altobridge is acquiring ADC’s existing GSM
base station and switching product customer base and retaining all of
the employees necessary to support the business. In addition,
Altobridge is acquiring certain assets and intellectual property
related to the product portfolio.

Both companies say they are committed to ensuring a smooth transition
for existing customers. Contracts and warranties with existing and
pending customers will continue to be supported by Altobridge.
