October is known to be a busy month for conferences and exhibitions in the radio communications industry and 2019 proved to be no exception; our Sales team have been very busy!
We have travelled to Las Vegas to support our US partner, Cable AML on their stand at WISPA. We also used the opportunity to spend valuable time with Extreme Technology Corporation, our Canadian partner, at the same event.
This is the first time we have showcased our new RAy3 microwave link in US since it received accreditation from FCC (USA) and IC (Canada). The main features that caught peoples’ attention were the 10dBm RF output power, true microwave platform, DC power option and low power consumption. Engineers also loved the RAy Tools App antenna alignment.
Such was the interest in RAy that we sold many links from the booth. The Sales team cannot remember the last time this was achieved at an event. We do believe we have found our niche in the North American market and are genuinely excited about the future for RAy3 in the US and Canada.
Much nearer to home, we attended KKTS, in Bratislava. Aimed at the Slovakian ISP community, this conference attracted over 350 delegates. Our keynote presentation, introducing our latest RAy3-17GHz microwave link was eagerly anticipated and well received by the large audience.
Particularly well received was the versatility of the radio and especially the option to configure asymmetric channels to allow maximum use of the available spectrum. This product too, created a huge amount of interest and our partner VanCo, received orders for a substantial number of links from both established and new customers as a direct result of the presentation.
During the same week as WISPA, RACOM was also exhibiting at Automa, in Zurich, showcasing our ability to provide robust wireless networks in the Oil & Gas sector. The Automa organisers employed a rather unique method, using the hostesses to arrange meetings between delegates. We were delighted with the number of people who arranged a meeting with us to discuss the features of our RipEX radio modem, M!DGE cellular router and the possibilities of combining these products in Hybrid networks.
Later in the month we were in Florence supporting our Italian partner, Advantec, at Forum Telecontrollo. This event is focused on Public utility companies, primarily for water distribution, but also attracts System integrators. It was an ideal platform for us to show case the global success stories we continue to achieve in this industry sector. This year, our latest Fully redundant Hot-Standby Master Station and the possibility of Hybrid networks combining radio and cellular technologies generated most interest.
