Move builds Rochester-based company’s international presence, which spans three continents
Today brought some exciting news out of London, UK about Precision OT, a leading provider of optical transceivers and active/passive optical components. The New York-based company has unveiled a new EMEA leadership team as it continues to grow within the European market for specialized engineering expertise and customizable optical network solutions.
The team includes:
Rob Harrison, Vice President of EMEA
Melanie Cantalejo, EMEA Sales & Business Development Director
Anthony Clarkson, Technical Director EMEA
Though Precision OT has always had a global reach, this announcement shows significant growth in the EMEA market. However, on a global scale, multinational telecommunications organizations, regional cable operators, mobile operators and other service providers are gearing up their networks for 5G and the impending tsunami of cloud and edge-based applications. As a result, demand for Precision’s solutions is only rising.
In fact, the company has added 39 employees in the region over the past 18 months. It has also tripled its revenue in three years. In many ways, Precision OT is riding the overall market trend towards increased competition among telcos as industry leaders contend for network performance advantages. Companies within the supply chain for optical networking equipment, like Precision, are excellently positioned to take advantage of further growth opportunities in the coming months and years.
“At Precision OT, we are a company of engineers first and foremost. As our customers continue to upgrade their existing network architectures, to roll out new technologies including 5G, they encounter a number of optical engineering challenges that off-the-shelf solutions often cannot satisfy. That is where we come in. Not only do we provide network operators with exceptionally reliable optical networking equipment, but our Advanced Development Group designs, tests and helps deploy customized solutions that make networks more efficient and easier to scale. Moreover, we’re incredibly focused on the type of customers we serve, including telcos and cable operators. Our customers know that they can count on us because we’re focused on the engineering and not on attempting to be everything to everyone.” – Rob Harrison, Vice President of EMEA
Whether providing optical networking solutions that are compatible with NEM equipment or white box hardware, Precision OT delivers Tier 1 products that allow for true network reliability and are backed by a lifetime warranty. In the EMEA region or Latin America, where the company operates as FonNet, Precision OT engineers work directly with customers to provide them with true custom solutions unavailable from NEMs.
