AirTies has completed its acquisition of Technicolor’s Wi-Fi management software business, Wireless Doctor.
With the deal, the companies have agreed to partner via technology integrations and sales channels to offer smart Wi-Fi solutions to service providers globally.
Bart Vercammen, formerly Technicolor’s Chief Technology Officer for its Customer Premises Equipment (CPE) and leader of the Wireless Doctor team, has also joined AirTies as Executive Vice President and General Manager of its software product line. He reports to AirTies CEO Philippe Alcaras.
“The acquisition of Technicolor’s talented team further scales our software development and management capabilities to meet the increasing demand for smart Wi-Fi,” said Alcaras.
“We’re also very pleased that Bart Vercammen will join our senior leadership team and bring his extensive industry knowledge, skills, and vision to AirTies. We also look forward to our brand-new business relationship with Technicolor, working as mutual preferred partners, to serve operators worldwide.”
AirTies has acquired the Wireless Doctor software portfolio, related intellectual property, and has gained approximately 30 employees from Technicolor along with access to key relationships with existing Wireless Doctor customers and partners.
Wireless Doctor will be used to complement and integrate features with AirTies’ Remote Manager, a cloud-based Wi-Fi network management tool targeted at broadband service providers.
