Axell Wireless & Aeroflex form Cobham Wireless

Provider of indoor wireless cellular and public safety solutions, Axell Wireless, has announced that its integration into Cobham will be fully completed by July 2015. This follows the acquisition of the company by Cobham in May 2013.

Axell Wireless, together with test and measurement company Aeroflex - acquired by Cobham in September last year- will form a new business unit, Cobham Wireless. The Cobham Wireless business unit, which will be led by Senior Vice President Ian Langley, will be a part of Cobham’s Communications and Connectivity sector. The completion of the Axell integration enables the former Axell business to take advantage of the combined capabilities in the Cobham portfolio.

Axell’s heritage is in designing and developing DAS coverage solutions for both cellular and public safety uses, in environments where providing communications infrastructure through traditional channels is challenging. High-profile deployments include The Shard, The London 2012 Olympics, The Washington Transit network and The Burj Khalifa.

Since its acquisition by Cobham, Axell has launched its dynamic wireless capacity management solution idDAS and has continued to deploy systems around the world, including Mandela Square in South Africa, World Trade Center One in the US and the World Cup stadia in Brazil. Axell will now look to increase its reach further into global markets, including building on its commercial and public safety expertise across North America, EMEA and APAC.

Fred Cahill, Senior Vice President, Cobham Communications and Connectivity, said: “In the months since the acquisition we have concentrated on integrating the portfolios and building on Axell’s existing credentials in the public safety and cellular industries. Going forward, we will use this expertise to enhance our offering to existing Cobham customers in vertical industries, and increase the range available to Axell’s current customers.”

Cobham Wireless SVP Ian Langley continued, “Operators are increasingly concerned with the reach of their networks, especially indoors, and are looking at ways to increase overall QoE and reduce churn. With the launch of idDAS last year, we have demonstrated its credentials and commitment to help operators achieve that aim. The continued investment in the business by Cobham will enable the team at Cobham Wireless to develop increasingly innovative solutions, putting us in an excellent position to continue to lead the DAS innovation market.”
