MobileComm has more than 21 years of experience in telecommunications and wireless engineering services.

Financial details of the acquisition were not released.

UST said the acquisition of Mobilecomm and the integration of its more-than 1,300 employees will “significantly strengthen” its telecommunications practice and position the company to continue building upon its growth in this dynamic sector.

“UST has earned a reputation as a key driver of innovation across a number of sectors, and we are excited to join them as we look to leverage the assets and experience of MobileComm to continue building on UST’s success in the telecommunications industry,” MobileComm CEO and founder partner Harvinder Cheema said in a statement.

Founded in 2002, MobileComm operates across the U.S., India, and Canada.

The company said its team of experts brings a diverse set of capabilities in wireless engineering. For 21 years, MobileComm has supported some of the largest communications service providers for a range of initiatives, including wireless network modernization, 5G network rollout, network performance enhancement, RF engineering, private cellular networks, and Open RAN.

Combining cloud, DevSecOps with wireless engineering

The companies said that as telco workloads move to the cloud and open networks standardize, managing complex multi-vendor, multi-technology, and multi-cloud networks have become increasingly critical to success.

They said this strategic acquisition will enable UST to merge its deep experience in cloud and DevSecOps (development, security, and operations) with MobileComm’s wireless engineering capabilities, providing unique offerings for CSP customers.

UST added that by combining its domain expertise in other key verticals with Mobilecomm’s wireless engineering expertise, UST can bring industry-curated 5G use cases, providing new monetization opportunities to CSPs.

Adding these capabilities to UST’s already strong telecommunications division positions the company to deepen existing client relationships while expanding its global client base, UST said.

Aravind Nandanan, general manager of telecommunications at UST, said his company believes  this strategic move “will further empower UST to continue developing our wide range of compelling solutions in the telecommunications sector.”

“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,” Nandanan added in a statement. “UST will build upon this momentum by continuing to invest in the network engineering space.”
