Polystar OSIX and Polystar T&M Merge to Form Polystar



STOCKHOLM – Polystar, a leading supplier of world-class telecommunication Test and Measurement and Network Performance Monitoring solutions, announced the merger and consolidation of all business activities of Polystar OSIX, Polystar T&M, and Polystar Instruments into one global company, effective 1 May 2011.

The alliance of these complementary organisations is being undertaken to further harmonise the product synergies and to reinforce Polystar's strong and ever-growing global business. As a result of the merger, the new Polystar product portfolio, roadmap formulation, and all development efforts will be strategically aligned, creating a powerful and streamlined product offering. Elaborate utilisation of the knowledge and advanced technology available in the test tool Solver, and its leverage into Polystar's Network Monitoring Solution, will boost the capabilities of the entire product line and contribute into customer's time-to-market acceleration.

Polystar will continue to offer excellent customer service and deliver innovative, technologically advanced products and services, as has been the case over the last 28 years. Furthermore, Polystar will be in a position to provide network manufacturers, telecom operators, and service providers with a complete supply chain-from the phase of new technologies implementation, through stress-testing, all the way to operation and network maintenance.

Commenting on the merger, Mikael Grill, CEO of Polystar, said: "I am confident that Polystar's international customer base will benefit greatly from this major strategic change of our corporate structure, as we continue and intensify the globalisation of our company. We have done comprehensive integration planning and have defined precise metrics to drive our success. We are committed to achieving the synergies we have identified."
