WHO WE ARE

We are the industry standard wireless network design software used all over the world. What does that mean? It means, if you are ever indoors and have good cellphone reception, chances are pretty good that network was designed with our software. And what started 18 years ago as a 2-person startup providing software for designing indoor cellular networks has quickly evolved into the 100+ employees company we are today with several software products and mobile apps.
