Analyst Comment

AirTies has ‘secret sauce’ in its high quality, bandwidth and reliability Wi-Fi technology which has been adopted by a number of big vendors including Sky. We’ve been following the company since we met them at IBC in 2009 when it was talking about trying to create a ‘negative brain drain’ to attract engineers back to Turkey and it’s gratifying to see the company developing. We plan to catch up again at this year’s event.

When we met them at first, the company was only a regional supplier for the Turkish, Greek and the Ukraine. (BR)
