Microsoft to buy Affirmed Networks
Microsoft is acquiring Affirmed Networks, one of the leaders in virtualised mobile networks. Affirmed Networks uses software to give operators more control over their networks and services. The buyout boosts Microsoft's Azure offering for operators as 5G ubiquity edges closer. "We intend to empower the telecoms industry as it continues its move to 5G," Microsoft VP Yousef Khalidi wrote in a blog.
