AirTies, a provider of managed Wi-Fi Mesh solutions to global service providers, has opened a new R&D centre in Austin, Texas, including a new test home that replicates real-world usage of in-home Wi-Fi to support customers in North America.
AirTies provides Wi-Fi solutions to leading international service providers, such as Atlantic Broadband, Frontier, Midco, Orange, Singtel, Sky (SKY Q in the UK; Germany; Italy; and New Zealand), Swisscom, Vodafone, and others.
AirTies noted that it has signed undisclosed contracts with additional service providers in North America, prompting this additional investment in the R&D facility. In addition, long-time AirTies executive, Mujdat Pakkan, EVP of Customer Programs, has relocated to oversee the new Austin facility.
“We’re very excited to open our first R&D center outside of Europe in order to support the growing market opportunity in North America,” said Philippe Alcaras, CEO of AirTies. “Austin’s central location and pool of incredible, high-tech talent made it a very appealing choice for us. Looking ahead, we expect North American Internet and TV service providers to drive significant business for us, and this facility is built with them in mind.”
