Westell Technologies, Inc., incorporated on October 29, 1980, is a provider of in-building wireless, intelligent site management, cell site optimization and outside plant solutions. The Company's set of products and solutions are designed to manage network performance for carriers, integrators and other network operators. The Company operates in two segments: In-Building Wireless (IBW) and Communication Solutions Group (CSG). The Company's segments are engaged in the design, development, assembly and marketing of a range of products and solutions.
The IBW segment solutions include distributed antenna systems (DAS) conditioners, digital repeaters and bi-directional amplifiers (BDAs), and system components and antennas, all used by wireless service providers and third-party hosts to fine tune radio frequency (RF) signals that helps extend coverage to areas not served well or at all by traditional cell sites. DAS conditioners units interconnect the wireless base transceiver system (BTS) to the DAS head-end while conditioning signals. The Company offers a range of passive system components (couplers, dividers, and tappers) for use in DAS and in-building wireless systems to direct and condition energy flow for specific frequency bands. It also offers a line of antennas to support in-building wireless communication.
Communication Solutions Group
The Company's intelligent site management solutions include a suite of remote monitoring and control devices, which, when combined with the Company's Optima management system, provides machine-to-machine (M2M) communications that enable operators to remotely monitor, manage and control site infrastructure and support systems. The cell site optimization solutions consist of tower mounted amplifiers (TMAs), small outdoor-hardened units mounted next to antennas on cell towers, enabling wireless service providers to manage the overall performance of a cell site. Its outside plant solutions, which are sold to wireless and wireline service providers, as well as to industrial network operators, consist of a range of offerings, including integrated cabinets, power distribution panels; copper and fiber connectivity, and synchronous optical networks/time division multiplexing (SONET/TDM) network interface units.
The Company competes with Asentria, CCI, Charles Industries, CommScope, Corning, DPS Telecom, Emerson, Errigal, Galooli, Inala, Invendis Quest Controls, Purcell, Ruggedcom, TE Connectivity, Telect and Trimm.
