PCTEL, a provider of antenna and scanning receiver solutions, announced
that it acquired the assets of Envision Wireless, an engineering services
business based in Melbourne, Florida.
Envision focuses on the RF issues pertaining to in-building coverage and
capacity and its target market is relevant to PCTEL’s antenna and scanning receiver
businesses. The company provides value-added analysis of collected data. They
provide services to the public cellular carriers, network infrastructure
providers, and real estate concerns.
PCTEL paid $1.45 million in cash for the assets. The company’s founders
and key employees will be joining PCTEL. PCTEL
anticipates generating about $200,000 a month in revenue from this new
“In-building represents one of our key, vertical antenna markets,” said
Marty Singer, PCTEL’s chairman and CEO.
“Additionally, our scanning receivers are widely used by network
engineers in resolving in-building design issues. We plan on expanding
Envision’s current operation and leveraging their activities into sales of both
antennas and scanning receivers,” Singer added.
“We are delighted to join forces with PCTEL,” said Bob Joslin, Envision
Wireless’ co-founder and president.
The new operation, Network Engineering Services (NES), will report into
Jeff Miller, PCTEL’s senior vice president, Sales and Marketing. The company
plans to combine its scanning receiver business with NES.
