Telent boosts MNO support services with Harlequin buy

Telent has bolstered its professional services capability in the site acquisition and design arena with the acquisition of Harlequin Group.

The buy allows Telent to provide a comprehensive and expanded ADC (acquire, design & construct) service to the UK’s MNOs at a time when mobile networks are rapidly migrating to 5G technology.

Jo Gretton, CEO of Telent, said: “This addition enables us to provide a complete and compelling proposition for the UK MNO market.”

David Summers, MD and founder of the Harlequin Group, added: “The resulting synergies will benefit both Telent’s and Harlequin’s existing customers and create the opportunity to further scale-up as the migration towards 5G gathers pace.”

The addition of the Harlequin Group also expands Telent’s capabilities with fibre network planning, surveying and design.

Harlequin Group will continue to operate under its brand with Summers remaining in charge.
