Innovation award for UK wireless technology company
Loughborough, UK – 21st April 2016
CommAgility announced today that it has won a Queen’s Award for Enterprise in Innovation, the UK’s most prestigious award for business success.
This new award follows CommAgility’s 2013 Queen’s Award for Enterprise in International Trade. The company also appeared in the Sunday Times Hiscox Tech Track 100 list of fastest growing technology companies in 2015, and featured in the Deloitte UK Fast 50 in 2013 and 2012.
Loughborough-based CommAgility received the award in recognition of its AMC-RF2x2 module, which is an innovative electronics product for 4G wireless communications. By providing a proven radio frequency (RF) interface, the AMC-RF2x2 helps CommAgility customers to develop next-generation applications quickly and easily, reducing overall solution cost.
Edward Young, managing director at CommAgility, said: “The AMC-RF2x2 was developed to meet demanding customer requirements, and is a commercial and technical success – and a tribute to the expertise of our engineers.”
The AMC-RF2x2 is a wideband, high performance and highly flexible dual-channel RF module in the AdvancedMC (AMC) form factor. It provides a high quality RF interface for Long Term Evolution (LTE) and LTE Advanced 4th Generation (4G) wireless infrastructure applications, and is suitable for test equipment, research, demonstrators and trial systems.
Based at Loughborough University Science and Enterprise Park (LUSEP), CommAgility has a second office at the TecTrum Technologiezentrum für Duisburg in Germany, following its acquisition in 2015 of MIMOon, an LTE software developer. The company exports around the world, with customers in over 15 countries including the USA, China, South Korea, India, France and Israel.
