The acquisition reflects the growing importance of universal coverage for consumer, corporate and public safety cellular networks and consolidates Axell Wireless' position as one of the largest manufacturers of wireless coverage solutions globally. Today Axell Wireless is the market leader in public safety systems covering such standards as Tetra, Tetrapol, P25 and GSM/R and aims to replicate that position in related markets within three years.
