Profile: Wireless Telecom Group Inc (WTT.A)
30 Jan 2015
Wireless Telecom Group, Inc., incorporated in 1985, designs and manufactures radio frequency (RF) and microwave-based products for wireless and advanced communications industries. The Company markets its products and services around the world under the brand names Boonton, Microlab and Noisecom. The Company’s suite of instruments and components includes peak power meters, signal analyzers, RF passive components and integrated subsystems, noise modules and precision noise generators. The Company serves commercial and Government markets with solutions in distributed antenna systems (DAS), cellular or mobile, Wi-Fi, WiMAX, private mobile radio, satellite, cable, radar, avionics, and medical and computing applications. The Company presents its operations in two segments: network solutions and test and measurement.
The Network Solutions segment is comprised primarily of the operations of its subsidiary, Microlab. The Company designs and manufactures RF passive components and integrated subsystems. It offers products for signal conditioning and distribution in the wireless infrastructure markets, particularly for DAS, the in-building wireless solutions industry, radio base-station market and medical equipment sector. 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.
Test and Measurement
The Test and Measurement segment is comprised of the operations of its subsidiaries, Boonton and Noisecom. The Company designs and produces electronic test and measurement equipment including power meters, voltmeters, capacitance meters, audio and modulation meters, portable passive intermodulation test equipment for field-based testing of 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 to provide wide band signals for telecommunication and defense applications, and as a reference standard for instruments and systems, including radar and satellite communications. Furthermore, noise sources can simulate signaling conditions in data and RF transmission systems, such as jitter testing for high speed data lines used in modern computer architecture and signal to noise measurements to optimize wireless receivers and transmitters. 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. Noise sources also are used in radar systems as part of built-in test equipment to monitor the radar receiver and in satellite 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’s products may be incorporated directly into the electronic equipment concerned or may be standalone components or devices that are connected to, or used in conjunction with, such equipment operating from an external site, in the factory or in the field. The Company provides recalibration services for instrument products to ensure their accuracy, for a fee, to domestic and international customers, and also calibrates test equipment manufactured by others.
The Company competes with Agilent Technologies, Inc., Rhode & Schwartz GmbH & Co. KG, Anritsu Corporation, Kathrein, Commscope, Westell Technologies, Inc. and Aeroflex Holding Corp.
