Atos acquired Air-Lynx, a French manufacturer of next-generation professional radio networks based on Long Term Evolution (LTE) market standards. This acquisition will allow Atos to complement its existing portfolio of professional mobile radio (PMR) and LTE tactical solutions and participate in the expanding market for PMR evolution to the LTE and 5G standards.

Founded in 2013, start-up Air-Lynx designs compact devices based on LTE with a range of products that focus on fast deployment, ease of use and high resilience.

"This acquisition perfectly complements Atos’ capacity in PMR and LTE tactical solutions, which includes the Hoox for mission line of tactical LTE devices, PMR integration and maintenance services and recording products," said Cyril Dujardin, Atos senior vice president, mission-critical systems, big data and security division. "In January, the Siemens CVC acquisition provided us with strong skills and solutions for PMR-based tactical communications. Now, with the groundbreaking Air-Lynx technology, Atos can deliver end-to-end tactical LTE solutions that are secure and resilient, but also fast to deploy and easy to use."

Air-Lynx solutions are frequency agile and ultra compact, making it possible to easily interoperate with existing professional networks, add capabilities and extend signal coverage. Air-Lynx addresses the defense and mission-critical markets, as well as safe cities and internet of things (IoT) networks. In addition, the ease of deployment makes it possible to provide last-mile LTE coverage in remote areas.
