7 Mar 2014
Wireless Telecom Group, Inc., incorporated in 1985, designs and manufactures radio frequency (RF) and microwave-based products for wireless and advanced communications industries and markets its products and services worldwide under the Boonton, Microlab and Noisecom brands. Its complementary suite of instruments and components includes peak power meters, signal analyzers, power splitters, combiners, diplexers, noise modules and precision noise generators. The Company serves both commercial and government markets with workflow-oriented, built-for-purpose solutions in cellular/mobile, wireless fidelity (WiFi), Worldwide Interoperability for Microwave Access, Inc. (WiMAX), private mobile radio, satellite, cable, radar, avionics, medical and computing applications.
The Company, through its Microlab subsidiary, designs and manufactures a wide selection of radio frequency (RF) and microwave components to be sold for the wireless infrastructure market, particularly for distributed antenna systems (DAS), the in-building wireless solutions industry, radio base-station market and medical equipment sector. Microlab's passive RF components share capabilities in the area of broadband frequency coverage, minimal loss and low passive intermodulation (PIM). Microlab product offerings include neutral host DAS and co-siting combiner solutions, hybrid couplers and hybrid matrices, cross band couplers, attenuators, RF terminations, RF power splitter and diplexers, as well as RF combiners and broadband combiner boxes for in-building DAS deployments.
The Company, through its Boonton subsidiary, designs and produces electronic test and measurement equipment including power meters, voltmeters, capacitance meters, audio and modulation meters, passive intermodulation test equipment for cellular transmission signals and accessory products. These products measure the power of RF and microwave systems used by the military and in commercial sectors like telecommunications. Boonton products are also used to test terrestrial and satellite communications, radar and telemetry. Certain power meter products are designed for measuring signals based on wideband modulation formats, allowing a variety of measurements to be made, including maximum power, peak power, average power and minimum power.
The Company’s noise components and instruments (noise source products) are used as a method of testing to determine if communications systems receive the information being transmitted. Application for the Company’s noise source products are as a reference standard in test instruments, which measure unwanted noise and interference in devices and components utilized in a variety of communications equipment. By generating a random noise signal, in combination with a live transmission signal, a noise generator simulates real world signals and allows the manufacturer to determine if its product is performing to specifications.
The Company’s noise components and instruments (noise source products) are used as a method to provide band signals for sophisticated telecommunication and defense applications, and as a stable reference standard for instruments and systems, including radar and satellite communications. Furthermore, noise sources can simulate challenging signaling conditions in data and RF transmission systems. Additionally, noise sources are used for jamming RF signals, and blocking or disturbing enemy radar and other communications, as well as insulating and protecting friendly communications. The Company also offers a line of broadband test sources serving the Cable Television and Cable Modem industry, including measurement solutions for CATV equipment, Data-Over-Cable (DOCSIS) and Digital television.
The Company competes with Agilent Technologies, Rhode and Schwarz, Anritsu, Kathrein, Aeroflex and Micronetics.
