Aeroflex Limited has announced the opening of its office in India, based in Bangalore. This office will be the country’s nucleus for Aeroflex’s sales, service, and application support for its test and measurement (T&M) products and systems.
Stephen Hire, appointed as the general manager for India, said the company has been active in the Indian T&M market for over 50 years.
“Important new opportunities in India have been created by the awarding of the TD-LTE broadband wireless access licenses, the increasing presence of major R&D facilities, and the warming of defense ties between the U.S. and India," he said.
One of the first activities of the office will be launching the new additions to the Aeroflex S-Series signal generator product line. Aeroflex is adding two new S-Series digital RF signal generators to its product line—the SGD in 3 GHz and 6 GHz models—as well as and two new vector signal analyzers—the SVA, available in 6 GHz and 13 GHz models. The S-Series was first introduced a year ago with the launch of the SGA analog RF signal generators.
Also, Aeroflex expertise will benefit India’s 2012 rollout of TD-LTE, Hire said. "With India’s first commercial launches expected in 2012 and no dates set for China’s LTE license awards, India may well become home to the world’s largest number of TD-LTE subscribers during 2012. We expect Aeroflex’s LTE products to aid India’s network launches."
