NetNumber Announces Launch of Two New Brands: Abry Partners Acquisition Creates NetNumber Global Data Services; Spin-Out of Software Line Forms Titanium Software

Big news is ringing out of Boston! Global telecommunications software and service provider, NetNumber, has announced the separation of its business lines to form two new powerful companies, NetNumber Global Data Services and Titanium Software. 

NetNumber, a staple in the telecom industry for over 20 years, credits this strategic move to an explosive growth period and the evolution of its independent solutions portfolios. The separation unleashes each company’s ability to flourish individually with laser-focused missions and transformative solutions to meet complex security and evolving market demands. 

Abry Partners’ Acquisition of NetNumber: The 4-1-1

Through the acquisition by Abry Partners, a Boston-based private equity firm with deep global communications, IoT and cybersecurity expertise, the new NetNumber Global Data Services is targeted at expanding the company’s phone number intelligence portfolio. These data innovation services deliver real-time routing and phone number data solutions to streamline operations, reduce costs and combat fraud. 

The Software Spin-Out Forms Titanium Software 

Simultaneously, as part of a spin-out, the software solutions suite and assets within the NetNumber umbrella, including its award-winning software platform and services that power intergenerational global telco and government networks, will now operate as an independent private company, Titanium Software. 

The New NetNumber Global Data Services

The Abry Partners investment enables NetNumber Global Data Services to boost its client portfolio of value-driven partnerships with enterprises, as well as Messaging and Communication Service Providers. Steve Legge has been appointed Chief Executive Officer of NetNumber Global Data Services, leading the business into the future. 

Legge joined NetNumber in 2013 as Vice President, Corporate Development, heading global partner strategies. He has served as the company’s Chief Operating Officer since 2018 and was instrumental in the company’s highly successful agile transformation and the strategic transition to cloud-native and 5G solutions, setting the stage for the next phase of growth in both businesses. 

“This future-focused investment by Abry Partners signifies the power and impact our team and services continue to have on the industry. It also further bolsters our growth trajectory into existing and emerging global markets while strengthening our team of customer-focused industry pioneers to remain at the forefront for many years to come.”
