ICON has successfully advised Aria Networks on the completion of a £500K funding round with private investors. Aria Networks has developed a unique product suite called intelligent Virtual Network Topologies (iVNT) which allows telecommunications carriers to plan and optimise increasingly complex multi-service Next Generation Networks.
Telcos are increasingly focused on "convergence" - namely the ability to offer voice, broadband and television services to their customers over a single network. To do this they are already building new networks using new technologies, based mostly around Internet Protocol and commonly referred to as Next Generation Networks (NGNs). Using Aria’s intelligent network planning software, iVNT enables telcos to design, plan, optimise and operate their NGNs and the services offered to their customers.
