As mobile-phone networks become more complex, operators need more specialised services to help run and maintain them. As a result, sales at Aircom International, which supplies planning and performance management software to clients such as Vodafone and Orange, have grown 51% a year from £23.2m in 2003 to £53m in 2005. In August 2005, the venture-capital company Advent International acquired a 70% stake in the business. Founders Stephen Mockford and Philip Caiger continue to lead the firm from its Surrey HQ.
