Qualcomm Ventures and Oxford Capital Partners have lead an investment round which raised 5 million (USD10 million) for Arieso, a wireless network optimisation provider. Arieso's existing shareholders, Add Partners and Top Technology, also participated in the Series B round.

By simulating network use, Arieso specifies the optimal setup for individual base stations to improve performance from the existing network, and can assess the return on investment of any additional sites. O2 Group, Telefonica, AT&T Mobility, Sprint, Vodafone and Qualcomm are among the organisations already using Arieso's products.

Development work is already underway to make Arieso's vision of self-optimising networks a reality. This self-optimisation focuses on the user experience by concentrating on where calls are actually being made and propagating adjustments in real time to continually fine-tune the network to respond to where users are and their demands for voice and data services. As Shirin Dehghan, CEO of Arieso comments, "The goal is to deliver new standards of quality in user experience, to seamlessly accommodate new services such as mobile TV, and to do this at a significantly reduced cost for operators."

Frederic Rombaut, head of Qualcomm Ventures Europe, commented: "Arieso is solving real problems for cellular operators today by improving the quality and cost efficiency of their networks, and we are pleased to take part in this funding round."
