Taoglas Opens New IoT Design and Support Center in Minneapolis to Support Increased Demand for Services

New lab and office in The 15 Building features state-of-the-art RF
anechoic chamber for advanced wireless testing

MINNEAPOLIS–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Taoglas,
a leading provider of IoT antenna and RF solutions, today announced the
opening of its new downtown Minneapolis facility to support the
increasing demand for its products and services for development of
Internet of Things (IoT) devices and solutions. The new facility,
located on the first floor of The 15 Building in downtown Minneapolis,
features a state-of-the-art antenna and RF test and design laboratory,
including a large 5-meter anechoic chamber. This is the latest Taoglas
location to receive an upgrade and the first such facility in the
Midwest dedicated to the IoT market.

Founded in 2004 with global headquarters in Dublin, Ireland, and U.S.
headquarters in San Diego, Taoglas has nine facilities around the globe
with approximately 350 employees worldwide. The new location will
support the growing demand for Taoglas antennas and RF solutions in the
Midwest U.S. region. As president of Taoglas U.S., Dennis Kish will lead
the Minneapolis office. He joined Taoglas earlier this year after having
served as president of Google Fiber.

“The greater Minneapolis area has really been a strong growth area for
Taoglas over the last few years, as home to many of our customers,
partners and one of our top distributors, Digi-Key,” said Dermot O’Shea,
Taoglas joint-CEO. “Minneapolis is one of the country’s fastest-growing
technology centers and its universities are becoming well-known
throughout the world for their ability to produce strong RF and wireless
engineers. The growth of IoT companies, in particular, has been
prominent in the region, making it a natural home for Taoglas. We look
forward to serving our customers and partners from this new location.”

Taoglas Minneapolis opened its doors six years ago with a smaller
facility and Taoglas is investing millions into a new lab to service
increased demand. The Minneapolis team is now seven employees strong,
and Taoglas plans to expand as its business in the region grows.

“Minneapolis has made strong investments in technology and tech
education over the past several years,” said Minneapolis Mayor Jacob
Frey. “Those investments have paid dividends with companies like Taoglas
committing to our city, adding jobs here, and helping make Minneapolis
one of the fastest-growing tech-hubs in the country.”

IoT test and design facility expands Taoglas offering into the region

Taoglas needed a larger footprint not only for the engineering staff,
but also for a state-of-the-art RF anechoic chamber and design
laboratory. Taoglas’ Satimo SG24-L chamber is ideal for fast
over-the-air (OTA) testing of antenna and mobile device conformance in
the frequency range of 400 MHz to 6 GHz. It handles all LTE, GNSS and
Wi-Fi protocols and offers a measurement speed up to three times faster
than the previous Satimo version. Taoglas Minneapolis can now perform a
wide variety of tests, including antenna and OTA measurements for GSM,
GPRS, UMTS, LTE, Wi-Fi, TRP / TIS, and sophisticated antenna
characterization.

“As wireless and IoT devices continue to grow in sophistication, so too
must the sophistication of the antennas and RF devices that provide
access to connectivity,” said Ronan Quinlan, Taoglas joint-CEO. “This
new facility allows us—and our partners and customers—to perform a wide
variety of tests in our Minneapolis location, helping speed time to
market. We’re happy to be a part of Minneapolis’ growing role as a city
of technology innovation.”
