In 2000, ten engineers from Cambridge University secured private equity funding to develop an innovative solution to the increased demand for mobile communications.
Back then, few could have imagined how drastically our telecommunications landscape would change over the next decade.
Where we started
Cambridge Broadband Networks Limited (CBNL) was conceived on the premise that we had a better way to build products compared to the existing networks of that era.
From this vision, VectaStar was born.
The launch of VectaStar
Soon after we started the earliest variant of VectaStar was launched and shipped to our first customers.
Success was immediate and some of those customers continue to operate those networks today with remote terminals numbering in the thousands.
Over the coming years CBNL identified new market opportunities and developed product variants to address those, featuring new frequencies and a move into the backhaul space.
It was clear that the product architecture would provide a fundamentally more efficient approach to serving the ‘bursty’ traffic generated by modern mobile broadband subscribers.
As a result VectaStar accelerated its success story to becoming a next generation backhaul product.
The period of 2005-10 saw us grow a staggering 864 per cent - growth which ranked us in the top 200 on the Deloitte Technology Fast 500 EMEA 2010, a ranking of the 500 fastest growing technology companies in EMEA, and reaching number 38 in the Sunday Times Microsoft Tech Track 100 in 2011.
We are set to continue our success in a growing market where network providers demand increasingly innovative, efficient and cost effective wireless backhaul solutions to cope with mobile date growth.
Along with providing a solution for today’s demands, VectaStar provides network operators with a sustainable and scalable solution designed to manage future mobile data growth as well as new technologies, including LTE coverage and small cell networks.
