Spirent acquires Wi-Fi experience monitoring specialist Epitiro

Financial terms of the agreement were not disclosed.

The pioneering Wi-Fi capabilities will extend Spirent’s proactive service assurance suite

Spirent Communications (OTCMKTS:SPMYY),  a provider of test methodologies, acquired Epitiro, a Wi-Fi experience monitoring specialist.

The acquisition of Epitiro by Spirent builds on the success of a strategic partnership which has led to experience monitoring system deployments at multiple customers, Sunnyvale, California-based Sprinet said in a statement on Tuesday.

“Our service provider and enterprise customers increasingly see Wi-Fi as an integral part of their strategy to provide services anywhere and anytime,” Des Owens, general manager of Service Assurance at Spirent, said in the statement.

Service providers and large enterprises increasingly rely on Wi-Fi to provide users with high-quality voice, video and data services and access to business-critical applications.

Unfortunately, the complexity of Wi-Fi and its dynamic interaction with LTE and other mobile technologies often leaves providers and enterprises blind to the actual end user experience.

Epitiro’s web-based platform provides continuous visibility of the end-user experience by proactively performing tests that emulate realistic user activities.

Key metrics include availability of Wi-Fi connectivity, file transfer and web browsing speed, availability and performance of social media applications like Facebook and much more.
