WHO WE ARE

We are the industry standard wireless network design software used all over the world. What does that mean? If you are ever indoors and have good cellphone reception, chances are pretty good that network was designed with our software, and if you're in a building where reception from your network is poor, chances are they never used our software. What started 16 years ago as a 2-person startup providing software for designing indoor cellular networks has quickly evolved into the 100+ employee company we are today with several software products and mobile apps.

  • Foosball tournaments and video games - bring your A game.
  • Bagels every Friday and an endless supply of caffeine.
  • Regular Social Outings – because we believe in play just as much as hard work.
