BLOOMINGDALE, Ill.

PCTEL, Inc. (NASDAQ: PCTI), a leader in Performance Critical Telecom solutions, announced the expansion of PCTEL’s RF Solutions engineering services with the opening of a western United States regional office. The new facility, located in Englewood, Colorado, will house a complete network engineering services operation. PCTEL is also expanding its existing facility in Melbourne, Florida, which will focus on serving the Eastern United States.

The expansion is driven by growing demand for services related to in-building wireless networks, particularly higher-value services such as network design and commissioning. This demand is expected to continue: Cisco® has forecasted that North American data usage will grow at 47% per year through 2019. Most of that data will be consumed indoors.

“A robust in-building network is now a must-have not only for high-profile venues such as airports and stadiums, but also for office complexes, hotels, and college campuses,” said Bob Joslin, Vice President and General Manager, Engineering Services. “Our unique processes and training techniques allow us to deliver consistent results to our growing base of customers,” added Joslin.

Javier Herrero, Senior Director, Engineering Services, will lead the new operation. “I am looking forward to bringing the Performance Critical advantage to more customers in the western United States,” said Herrero. “We are looking for talented people to join our organization at all levels, from support staff to senior engineers,” added Herrero.

PCTEL’s new engineering services facility is located at 116 Inverness Drive East, Suite 220, Englewood, CO 80112.
