The acquisition by VIAVI brings together market-leading solutions of both Comtest Wireless and Expandium, a VIAVI Solutions company, into a single portfolio and will enable customers to gain even greater value from our synergies. In addition, our newly combined team will use our railway and telecoms expertise to develop into other markets, including mission-critical systems and operational cybersecurity.

Comtest Wireless Founder, Pietro Comerro, says “Both Comtest Wireless and VIAVI are leading providers of test, measurement and monitoring solutions for railway telecoms networks & signalling systems and the acquisition promises a very exciting future for us both, under the new banner of one team.”

Yann Rouveyre, Expandium’s Business Director says, “With Comtest Wireless joining VIAVI, we are able to offer even better opportunities for our customers. Combining our powerful knowledge and expertise will enable us to better develop and support existing customers as they transition to new technologies for the Future Railway Mobile Communication System (FRMCS). At the same time, we are well positioned to also support new customers in cybersecurity and other mission-critical sectors.”

Further information on the acquisition will be shared at the combined Comtest Wireless and Expandium User Group – hosted by VIAVI Solutions, and taking place in Rome on 8-10 June 2022.
