Powerwave Technologies, Inc. supplies wireless solutions for wireless communications networks. The company’s business consists of the design, manufacture, marketing, and sale of products to improve coverage, capacity, and data speed in wireless communications networks. The company sells its products to both original equipment manufacturers, who incorporate its products into their proprietary base stations (which they then sell to wireless network operators), and directly to individual wireless network operators for deployment into their existing networks. Principal Product Groups Antenna Systems This product group includes base station antennas and tower-mounted amplifiers. The company offers a line of base station antennas, which cover major radio frequency bands, including cellular, PCS, 3G, and 4G bands. Its products also support major wireless transmission protocols. The company’s base station antenna products include single, dual, and triple-band solutions based on proprietary technology in various sizes. It also offers remote-adjustable electrical tilt antennas, which provide remote control and monitoring capabilities. The company also manufactures a line of tower-mounted amplifiers, which improve wireless network performance by filtering and amplifying as close as possible to the receiving antenna. Its tower-mounted amplifier products cover major wireless frequency ranges and transmission protocols. Base Station Subsystems This product group includes products that are installed into or around the base station of wireless networks and includes products, such as boosters, combiners, filters, radio frequency power amplifiers, VersaFlex cabinets, and radio transceivers. The company offers both single and multi-carrier radio frequency power amplifiers for use in major global frequency bands, including cellular, PCS, 3G, and 4G bands, supporting major transmission protocols. Typical system applications include code division multiple access (CDMA), CDMA 2000, wideband code division multiple access, global system for mobile, enhanced data rates for global evolution, universal mobile telecommunication systems and long term evolution protocols with output power ranging from 10 to 180 Watts. In addition, the company produces filters, which can improve the signal transmission for both up and down link, as well as help to reduce out-of-band performance. Its filters cover all major global frequency bands. Along with filters, the company provides radio frequency power combiners, which allow for the connecting of multiple radio frequency power signals. The company also provides a range of integrated radio solutions. These integrated radio solutions offer new alternative approaches to providing lower-cost base station solutions. One product offering is the digital remote radio head transceiver, which provides operators the ability to partition the radio transceiver, power amplifier, and duplexer in a remote chassis, which can then be co-located near the antenna to minimize signal loss over the traditional antenna path. The digital remote radio head utilizes base band signals from the output of the modem via fiber optic cables, which offer improved performance over distance versus traditional cables. Coverage Solutions This product group consists primarily of distributed antenna systems, repeaters and advanced coverage solutions. The company’s distributed antenna systems solutions provide the equipment to co-locate multiple wireless operators on multiple frequency bands within a single location, while allowing each operator to maintain full control over parameters critical to its network’s performance. These systems are custom designed by the company for use in convention centers, airports, subways, transportation centers, dense urban business districts, and business campuses. The company’s systems are available in a frequency range from 700 MHz to 2600 MHz, support all major transmission protocols, and have features and functions that allow network operators to remotely monitor and adjust these systems. The company’s coverage solutions provide an integrated team of radio frequency and system engineers to design and implement wireless coverage applications utilizing its coverage solutions products. It provides advanced coverage engineers to design the right solution for any type of wireless coverage issue. Based upon its design, it also offers monitoring options of the chosen coverage solution. The types of sites utilizing the company’s services include convention centers, airports, subways, hotels, office buildings, and various locations where traditional wireless service coverage is not available. Customers The company sells its products to customers worldwide, including various wireless original equipment manufacturers, such as Alcatel-Lucent; Ericsson; Huawei; Motorola; Nokia Siemens Networks; and Samsung. It also sells its products to operators of wireless networks, such as AT&T; Bouygues; Orange; Sprint; T-Mobile; Verizon Wireless; and Vodafone, as well as various resellers who sell products and services directly to network operators. It also serves Team Alliance and Raycom. Competition The company’s competitors include Comba Telecom Systems Holdings Ltd; CommScope, Inc.; Fujitsu Limited; Hitachi Kokusai Electric Inc.; Japan Radio Co., Ltd.; Kathrein-Werke KG; Radio Frequency Systems; Tyco Electronics; Alcatel-Lucent; Ericsson; Huawei; Motorola; Nokia Siemens Networks; and Samsung. History The company was founded in 1985. It was formerly known as Milcom International, Inc. and changed its name to Powerwave Technologies, Inc. in 1996.
