The Minister of Communications, Yoaz Hendel, visited the Israeli R&D center of the American company Parallel Wireless in Kfar Saba and received lots of information on how to upgrade advanced cellular infrastructure (from 2G, 3G, 4G and now 5th generation or 5G) at the push of a button with a software-based solution and bring progress to the periphery and all parts of the country.
During the minister’s visit, Baruch Navon, Senior Vice President of Parallel Wireless’ Global Development Manager, who also serves as the director of the Israeli R&D Center, announced that the company is currently recruiting approximately 100 new employees.
The Israeli R&D Center, which currently employs about 250 people, is developing a smart, software-based infrastructure for cellular networks, which is a global revolution in the way in which wireless networks are deployed and operated.
Parallel Wireless’ customers include the world’s leading telecom companies such as British Telecom, Vodafone, Telefonica (IpT), and more. The company has received over 80 awards for its innovative technology.
The need for OpenRAN technology and vendor diversity is growing. I am glad that Parallel Wireless and Parallel Wireless RnD center in Israel is leading this market. The innovative development and research is helping to produce a telecom industry ecosystem to drive lower deployment TCO, where companies can still profit while increasing efficiency and sustainability.
All our aspects of life today depend on the communications infrastructure and therefore it is important that countries ensure safe communication networks at reasonable prices. We at the Ministry of Communications do everything to promote competition. We will continue to encourage establishments of development headquarters to create jobs in Israel.” Yoaz Handel, Communications Minister
The staff of the Israeli R&D Center is at the forefront of the global telecom revolution, as Israel has the largest pool of talents in the field. The R&D center continues to grow and lead technologically, with each employee having a huge presence, influence and opportunities for personal development while shaping the future of the telecom world.” Baruch Navon, Senior Vice President and Head of Global R&D at Parallel Wireless
