NetComm Wireless launches US R&D facility

NetComm Wireless announced that it has established its first research and development (R&D) facility outside of Australia with the launch of its new R&D centre in Sunrise, Florida, United States.

According to the company, the establishment of the centre is “a natural extension of NetComm Wireless’ commitment to the US market”, particularly in light of its announcement of a major contract win within the US in respect to its fixed wireless business.

The facility currently employs two teams of 30 software, hardware and radio frequency engineers. The centre’s location was chosen because it is a significant technology hub that is attracting a substantial number of multinational technology-based companies and has a large pool of telecommunications engineers, according to the company.

“NetComm Wireless has experienced tremendous growth in recent years and we will continue to invest in the R&D resources needed to accelerate the expansion of our business in the US and globally,” said David Stewart, the company’s CEO and managing director.

“Our new R&D centre will allow us to meet the specific needs of our US-based customers and partners, while strengthening our product design, development and testing capabilities.”

The company has also announced the expansion of its R&D facilities in Sydney and Melbourne.
