The acquisition provides Altran with deep expertise in the latest mobile connectivity technology and emerging technologies such as 5G. It will reinforce the leading edge expertise of the Altran’s Advanced Network World Class Center created earlier this year. GlobalEdge also strengthens Altran’s high-end expertise in embedded software development and testing. GlobalEdge has strong knowledge in the development of embedded software solutions and services to enable diverse applications across industry segments. The company owns its own product IP frameworks focused on connectivity, and offers a highly automated connectivity lab-as-a-service, currently sold to a number of major clients.

Founded in 2001, GlobalEdge is currently held by the founders and their families, Coffee Day Trading Ltd. (formerly known as Global Technology Ventures) and ESOP. The acquisition is subject to customary closing conditions and expected to be completed in September 2017.
