BEDFORD, Mass. -- Empirix Inc., the market leader of service quality assurance solutions for new IP communications, today announced it has acquired privately held Mutina Technology S.p.A., an Italy-based provider of monitoring surveillance and analysis technologies for Mobile Broadband (MBB), Next Generation Networks (NGN), SS7/Sigtran Signaling, VoD/IPTV, and IP Core for Telecom and Enterprise Networks. The acquisition of Mutina strategically expands Empirix’s product line for the monitoring of mobile networks and extends the Company’s presence in EMEA and Asia Pacific.

The acquisition of Mutina enables Empirix to offer quad play providers a service assurance solution that offers a full end-to-end view of their networks. The merging of these technologies results in a single, easy to use application for the analysis of control, user and data transmission plane information. The combination of Empirix’s industry leading Hammer XMS™ solution for IMS, VoIP and SS7 networks with the IPXPlorer® system from Mutina delivers cutting-edge solutions for mobile broadband, video and data –– representing a truly comprehensive approach for all types of converged network operators. In addition, Mutina’s innovative, hand-held device will enable technicians to bring the combination of these technologies out into the field to provide real-time service quality. Currently, Mutina’s portfolio is available as standalone products and work to tightly integrate these offerings into Empirix’s Hammer XMS platform is underway.

“As service providers move quickly towards LTE networks, there is a need to monitor increasingly large amounts of voice, video, and data across all access networks,” said John D’Anna, CEO of Empirix. “The acquisition of Mutina strengthens Empirix’s position in the global service assurance market serving converged service providers."
