MobileComm Acquisition Marks UST's Telecom Expansion

By Greg Tavarez September 21, 2023

The transition of telco workloads to the cloud offers several benefits, including increased flexibility, scalability and cost-saving opportunities. By leveraging cloud infrastructure, telcos add services more quickly, respond faster to changes in network demand and manage central and decentralized resources more efficiently. Standardizing open networks allows communications service providers to mix and match vendor solutions across the mobile network, which can lead to greater flexibility and innovation.

Still, as telco workloads migrate to the cloud and open networks become more standardized, managing complex multi-vendor, multi-technology and multi-cloud networks has become increasingly crucial to achieving success.

Telcos must ensure seamless integration and interoperability between different vendors’ solutions, technologies and cloud environments. This requires robust network management systems and tools that can handle the complexity and scale of modern telco networks.

That said, the global telecom cloud market size, valued at $20.4 billion in 2021, according to Grand View Research, is expected to expand at a compound annual growth rate of 19.9% to 2030. Therefore, UST, a digital transformation solutions company, wants to establish a presence in the rapidly growing next-generation network space.

To achieve this, UST acquired MobileComm, a global telecom engineering firm with over 21 years of experience in telecommunications and wireless engineering services.

"UST has earned a reputation as a key driver of innovation across a number of sectors, and we join them as we look to leverage the assets and experience of MobileComm to continue building on UST's success in the telecommunications industry," said Harvinder Cheema, CEO, MobileComm.

MobileComm has supported some of the largest CSPs for a range of initiatives, including wireless network modernization, 5G network rollout, network performance enhancement, RF engineering, private cellular networks and Open RAN. MobileComm’s team of experts will bring that diverse set of capabilities in wireless engineering to UST.

The acquisition lets UST blend its extensive expertise in cloud and DevSecOps with MobileComm's wireless engineering skills, creating solutions tailored for CSP (News - Alert) clients. By uniting UST's domain knowledge in various essential sectors with Mobilecomm's wireless engineering proficiency, UST can introduce 5G (private cellular) applications for the industry, opening up fresh revenue opportunities for CSPs.

Incorporating these capabilities into UST's already robust telecommunications division positions the company to strengthen its current client partnerships and broaden its worldwide customer portfolio.

“We are now better positioned to leverage our existing technologies and client relationships to expand the scope of our offerings and deliver bespoke solutions that accelerate digital transformation,” said Aravind Nandanan, General Manager, Telecommunications, UST. “UST will build upon this momentum by continuing to invest in the network engineering space.”
