More OSS M&A: Finland's Comptel buys Axiom

Finland-based OSS company Comptel Corp is acquiring U.K.-based OSS firm Axiom Systems for $13.8 million. The deal provides more evidence that OSS market consolidation is ongoing, as it comes just a few days after another OSS-themed acquisition, the purchase of Atreus Systems by Sonus Networks.

Comptel is primarily a wireless OSS vendor, and acquiring Axiom will give it a solid base of products for wireline IP networks, as well as major wireline customers, such as BT.
