About us > About us
RACOM is a private, wholly Czech-owned company involved in the development and production of equipment for wireless data transfer. Our three main product lines are Radio modems, GPRS/EDGE/UMTS routers and Microwave links.
RACOM is a modern company with its own technological centre for SMT and hybrid assembly, a subsidiary company, RACOM SLOVAKIA, and an extensive network of international partners, who ensure that we continue to export the majority of our products.
RACOM’s foundations were laid in 1989, shortly before the fall of communism in the former Czechoslovakia. In the beginning we were producing equipment for radio amateurs in a small workshop, however, it wasn’t long before we were successfully exporting our products.
The local radio amateur market soon became too small for us and so in 1990 we made a conscious decision to enter the wireless data transmission market and began manufacturing radio modems. In 2005 we stepped into GSM data transfer market and in 2009 into microwave links market.
Today RACOM is one of the leading players in the global market of data transfer for SCADA & Telemetry applications and plays a significant role in setting development trends in this field.
