Wireless broadband manufacturer, Cirtek Advanced Technologies and Solutions Inc. (CATS) sees expansion opportunities amid the dynamic increase in mobile data demand.
“Continuous need for increasing wireless capacity and coverage is increasing the strain on operators’ backhaul networks,” said CATS chief executive officer Alvin Guzon.
Mobile and wireless backhaul refers to a communication network section that facilitates transportation of mobile data traffic.
CATS said the company is looking to ride the increase in mobile data traffic as a part of its growth strategy.
Guzon said the rapidly increasing demand for high-quality mobile services is an opportunity for mobile operators to invest in backhaul space, viewing it as an opportunity bubble for existing and start-up vendors in the backhaul market.
A report from global market research company Research and Markets says that with increasing Long-Term Evolution (LTE) and small-cell deployments, availability of smart communication devices and technological progress, the telecommunication industry forecasts extensive growth in mobile data traffic.
With its many years of experience in the industry, CATS is at par with other technology companies, Guzon said.
“CATS has a history of over 19 years of producing high-quality and complex RF and microwave products in the Philippines,” Guzon said.
“CATS has vertically integrated operational capabilities that can manufacture products from components to sub-systems to system level,” he added.
Having such experience gives the Laguna-based CATS the edge among other EMS (electronics manufacturing services) providers, he said.
“We can work with the customer with limited support needed since we have multi-disciplinary teams that understand and can do product/technology transfer in a short period of time from customer facilities to the Philippine operations,” noted Guzon.
He also reported that CATS’ business development, sales and marketing teams are always on the road and aggressively talking to current customers, strengthening existing relationships and looking for potential customers to expand the business, thus offering them more economical options to choose Cirtek.
