R&S BICK Mobilfunk now Rohde & Schwarz professional mobile radio
Date: Mon, 03/09/2009 - 15:07
At the end of December 2008 the Rohde & Schwarz subsidiary specializing in professional mobile radio systems changed its name to “Rohde & Schwarz Professional Mobile Radio GmbH"
The new name reflects the business field of the former R&S BICK Mobilfunk GmbH and positions the subsidiary more clearly on the world market.
The professional mobile radio business segment includes TETRA networks and applications for industry and public safety organizations. Rohde & Schwarz has already supplied TETRA networks to more than 30 countries – for example for the Panama Canal Authority's radio network, in the national security network of the Malaysian government authorities or at major sporting events such as the Asian Games in Qatar.
"The new name underlines that we are part of the Rohde & Schwarz group of companies," says Dr. Georg Haubs, President of Rohde & Schwarz Professional Mobile Radio GmbH. "This is only logical, since our customers and business partners have always associated our products and their quality and reliability with Rohde & Schwarz."
In May 2007, Haubs (54) succeeded company founder Heinz Bick (56) as president. Bick was a shareholder in the subsidiary until Rohde & Schwarz GmbH & Co. KG recently converted its majority shareholding into a 100 % holding. Bick will continue to support Rohde & Schwarz Professional Mobile Radio GmbH by providing his knowledge in an advisory role.
