Zinwave doubling headcount and facilities in California
Cambridge wireless technology company Zinwave is doubling its operational capacity in California to meet growing customer demand on the West Coast.
Zinwave is also looking to double its current headcount at the San Jose office to 16 over the next six months with new hires in sales, service and support. The company plans to promote its latest product portfolio launched at Mobile World Congress earlier this year.
Its larger refurbished premises will feature a product demonstration suite for executive presentations on Zinwave’s latest technologies.
The US is the largest market for in-building DAS products and Zinwave is targeting fresh verticals including sports stadiums, hotels and casinos.
Zinwave is a global provider of a unified connectivity solution for in-building wireless and IP coverage in high density buildings.
A larger presence in California’s technology hub will enable Zinwave to further strengthen its position as a market leader in the development of RF coverage solutions using advanced photonics and wideband amplifier technology and increase its footprint in North America.
Zinwave has recently extended its proprietary DAS product by incorporating IP and high capacity Wi-Fi capabilities into its core technology to develop a unified connectivity platform for all in- building wireless and IP coverage requirements. Branded as UNItivity, this new solution supports all RF services between 150MHz-2700MHz on a single, converged infrastructure.
UNItivity supports any combination of wireless, Wi-Fi and IP services on a single hardware layer, regardless of protocol or modulation scheme. It is also the only system to support multiple FDD and TDD LTE services simultaneously across any spectrum allocated globally.
UNItivity provides building owners, MNOs and neutral host providers with an “install-once” solution. It eliminates the need for expensive and disruptive upgrades to existing infrastructures to accommodate new services as they become available.
Its fibre design and wideband DAS functionality delivers the most flexible solution on the market today, offering significantly lower CAPEX and OPEX costs compared to traditional DAS installations.
“This is an exciting time in our corporate history,” said Zinwave CEO Ian Sugarbroad.
“Since becoming part of a global technology group and the McWane family of companies we have seen exponential growth for our products and services. Larger premises and an increased workforce in the world’s largest DAS market will ensure we maintain these growth levels and remain a market leader in the development of innovative RF coverage solutions for high density buildings.”
