Andrew expands Wollongong R&D centre

By
Andrew Corporation says it has added a number of additional engineers and support staff to the former Nortel facility at the University of Wollongong acquired in August 2005.

The company has held an official opening of the centre, its first research and development centre in the Asia-Pacific region outside of China, saying it expects to add more resources to accommodate growth in the worldwide market for mobile location services.

According to Terry Garner, group president network solutions at Andrew Corporation, the team members "are innovators in wireless location services and recognised for their work in defining the new architecture and standards for secure user plane location (SUPL) and control plane location capabilities, as well as determining location in internet protocol networks."

Andrew claims that its Geometrix location systems have been installed by more operators than any competing system. The Wollongong facility supports Andrew's Geometrix mobile location centre platform, claimed to offer "the world's most advanced array of standards-compliant, fully-interoperable locating options in a single carrier-grade system, including serving mobile location centres (SMLC) and gateway mobile location centres (GMLC).

Andrew acquired the facility and approximately 40 employees, along with products and customers, as part of its purchase of Nortel's wireless location business assets. Andrew also has approximately 55 other employees in Australia in Campbellfield, Victoria, (sales, operations, and administration) and in Padstow, New South Wales (engineering).
