SpiderCloud makes nodes and controllers that are similar to a Wi-Fi system, he said. But the difference is that the nodes - essentially access points - run on licensed spectrum operated by wireless carriers.

The company aims to sell its hardware system, which it calls the Enterprise Radio Access Network, to the world's top wireless carriers, who will in turn offer the system to enterprise customers looking to boost their signals, he said.SpiderCloud's system is being tried out by European carriers. The company's next step will be to approach the top carriers in the U.S. and elsewhere, Haraldsvik said.
He declined to give details about the volume of production at the company, which has more than 50 employees. He also declined to give details on revenue, or a valuation.
The company was founded by retired Juniper Networks Inc. executive Peter Wexler and Allan Baw, co-founder of broadband gateway maker Stoke Inc., Haraldsvik said. – less – More from ZoomInfo »
