Otto Wireless scoops two new agencies

29 May 2019 News

Otto Wireless Solutions has recently been appointed as the official distributor for two overseas manufacturers of RF and microwave components: Taiwanese microwave ceramic components designer and manufacturer, Cirocomm, and Italy-based Mipot, which manufactures and sells RF modules in the ISM band.

Cirocomm’s portfolio of products includes DR filters, PCB/FPC antennas, patch antennas, active antennas, external antennas and more. The first products to arrive on South African shores are its ceramic SMD antennas, which can be found on the Otto Wireless Solutions website.

Cirocomm maintains small form-factor products by selecting high K-value material. Its miniature antennas are commonly found in Wi-Fi and 5G products such as cameras and industrial equipment. Cirocomm has its own antenna labs (with HFSS software, RF measurement gauges, and equipment such as over-the-air chambers) which enables it to provide result-focused solutions to meet customer needs.

Mipot offers solutions for Internet of Things (IoT), machine-to-machine (M2M) and other low-power wide-area network applications. “As customer demand for LoRa products has steadily increased, Otto Wireless Solutions has actively sought a technology partner capable of delivering module solutions for this market, and is pleased to announce that Mipot’s LoRaWAN module has received ICASA type approval. The product has been locally tested and is compatible with other LoraWAN products available from Otto,” commented Chris Viveiros, operations and technical director of Otto Wireless Solutions.

According to Viveiros, many LoRaWAN devices were considered, but many were found to be operating well outside of the limits set by ICASA, and would therefore not be suitable for the South African market. “Mipot, on the other hand, being a European product, was found not only to be compatible with local type-approval requirements, but also provided high-quality documentation, and the team at Mipot displayed an enthusiastic approach to working with Otto Wireless Solutions to grow the market,” he said.
