Celcite, a US-based company that specialises in self-organizing network (SON) and automated network management solutions, is planning to expand its business in the region after opening a new office in Dubai.

Rahul Sharma, CEO of Celcite, said that there is an “increasing appetite” for self-optimising network and self-organising network (SON) solutions from mobile operators in the MEA region.

“We are completely committed to our current and future customers in these regions, which is why we are investing strongly in both local offices and local talent,” Sharma said.

Celcite has also recruited Chris Larmour as chief marketing officer and Ben Gardiner as GM and VP of sales, MEA and Asia Pacific.

Larmour has around 25 years of mobile industry experience and was most recently VP Global Sales & Marketing at SwissQual and chief marketing officer at Actix. He will be responsible for developing the company's brand profile and for leading its market engagement programs globally.

Gardiner, who will be based in Dubai, has more than 20 years experience in the mobile industry and was formerly a director of mobile broadband solution sales at Ericsson.
