ICON has successfully advised Aria Networks on the completion of a £2 million fundraising

Aria Networks, is a leading provider of planning and optimisation solutions for Next-Generation Networks. Their technology is highly disruptive and has the capability to fundamentally change the economics of a telecom operator’s business.

Using Aria’s intelligent network planning software, telcos are able to design, plan, optimise and operate their Next-Generation Networks.

Furthermore, the functionality provided by Aria enables telecom operators to economically build their network and to reliably deliver the myriad of services they offer, including voice, data, broadband and television services over a single network.

Over the last year we have made significant progress with our customers and partners around the world. With Seraphim’s backing, we now have the capability to further execute on our unique technology and business strategy”.

This funding from Seraphim will help the Company to accelerate its current growth path and become a truly global technology offering.”
