Cambium Networks sets up Middle East base
Vendor begins operations as an independent firm with forecasts of better year ahead
Cambium Network, a provider of wireless broadband solutions, has announced regional expansion plans after the vendor opened its headquarters for the Middle East region.
Based in Dubai's Silicon Oasis, the office will manage Cambium's regional operations and comes three months after the company revealed its independence from Motorola Solutions, Inc, its former parent company.
The announcement in November 2011, was followed by a declaration that it had started independent operations to provide wireless broadband solutions, services and products to customers and partners across the Middle East.
With over 13 years experience, Cambium Networks says it has experienced significant growth of between 10 to 15% year-on-year in wireless broadband and microwave solutions, and services in the military, government, municipal and enterprise sectors.
According to a recent study by PricedwaterhouseCoopers (PwC), the number of high speed mobile broadband subscribers is predicted to increase to approximately 125 million users by 2014.
"The demand for high-speed connectivity is increasing significantly in the Middle East," says Graham Owen, Middle East regional sales director, Cambium Networks. "As an independent company, Cambium becomes nimbler, more focused and completely dedicated to helping our customers and partners take full advantage of the continuing growth of wireless broadband in the region."
