PCTEL Opens New Wireless Product Development Center for Industrial IoT Applications

PCTEL has opened a new Wireless Product Development Center in Akron, Ohio (United States) dedicated to the development of devices for the Industrial IoT and other enterprise-class applications. It provides comprehensive integration, design, and planning of complete products such as access points and routers, including radios, computing hardware, sensors, and antenna systems. In addition, the Center will provide in-house testing, regulatory certification assistance, and manufacturing capabilities to PCTEL’s customers.

Wireless connectivity is crucial for the Industrial IoT. Applications such as smart utilities, industrial process automation, and intelligent transportation systems require custom devices with seamless integration of antennas with radios, computing hardware and sensors.

The Wireless Product Development Center is led by Dr. Steve Saliga. Steve joined PCTEL from Cisco, where he was responsible for antenna products and wireless hardware design for their Wireless Networking Business Unit.

Each member of Saliga’s team has at least 15 years of experience developing innovative wireless products for leading radio equipment manufacturers. Their design work focuses on the latest wireless technologies, including evolving 802.11 Wi-Fi standards, 802.11ad, Bluetooth/BLE, WiHart, 4G LTE, and 5G-NR. Recent projects include PCTEL’s reference 802.11ax Wi-Fi antenna system design, produced for a major chipset manufacturer.
