About VIAVI AvComm & Validation Solutions
On February 1, 2018, VIAVI announced that it has signed a definitive agreement to acquire the Test and Measurement business of Cobham plc (formerly Aeroflex) and this acquisition was completed on the 16th March. The transaction significantly strengthened VIAVI’s competitive position in 5G deployment and diversified the company into military, public safety and avionics test markets. Cobham AvComm and Wireless T&M is the leader in comprehensively testing communication service providers’ networks from the radio access network through to the network core. It has also served military, public safety and aviation markets for decades with its trusted land-mobile radio and avionics test solutions.
Aeroflex Incorporated was a multi-faceted high technology company that designed, developed, manufactured and marketed a diverse range of microelectronic and test and measurement products. Their products are in worldwide use, supporting communication systems, networks and automatic test systems.
Aeroflex's highly respected achievements in enabling broadband and wireless communications were based on a broad range of patented and proprietary technologies. They balanced the quest for new and exciting innovation against the need to offer products that can be supported by high-rate manufacturing and are of the highest quality and reliability. They aggressively pursued those technologies that not only provide superior product performance, but also have reached a level of maturity that ensures efficient manufacturability and good value for our customers.
VIAVI already had some 5G-related products to offer vendors, test labs and operators, but adding Cobham's AvComm and Wireless T&M portfolios, will greatly enhance its capabilities. It will also provide VIAVI with more firepower as it battles with other test system specialists for 5G-related business.
