Sony Semiconductor Solutions has acquired the network virtualization Swiss-Spanish startup Mido Holdings by signing a share transfer agreement with the shareholders of Mido Holdings and completing the transfer of shares. Consequently, Mido Holdings has become a wholly-owned subsidiary of Sony Semiconductor Solutions.

Virtualization technologies include virtual network technology, which uses software to reconfigure networks without altering the physical infrastructure of communication devices such as routers and switches, and technologies that virtually integrate and control multiple servers and storage devices. These technologies are used to build cloud computing systems and other such highly flexible systems.

The acquisition of Mido Holdings is said to enable Sony Semiconductor to utilize virtualization technologies together with its image sensor technology, making it possible to configure a virtual environment that integrates multiple edge devices equipped with image sensors. This, in turn, will allow the company to provide a new edge computing environment that can be linked with cloud systems.

This acquisition will have only a minor impact on Sony Corporation's consolidated financial results for the fiscal year ending March 31, 2020.
