"CENX bolsters Ericsson's ability to support CSPs' visions to achieve high levels of operations automation, operationalise NFV and prepare for 5G."

Ericsson has announced its intent to acquire all the shares in CENX, a provider of service assurance operations support systems (OSS) to the communications service provider (CSP) market. Ericsson has been a minority stake holder in the company since 2012, along with Verizon Ventures and other venture capital (VC) firms.
