Mitec Telecom announced today that it is closing its U.S. operations based in Reno, Nev. as part of continuing consolidation efforts to return the company to profitability.

Mitec said it will concentrate all North American operations through its Montreal facility: “This decision will reduce expenses and align operations in keeping with management’s strategy of ensuring a profitable and highly efficient operation.”

Mitec also announced the signing of a strategic alliance with Broadband Wireless LLC to develop Multi-Carrier High-Power Amplifiers (MCPA) for wireless infrastructures.

Mitec will join forces with the Reno-based company, which has proprietary MCPA technology. This technology will be combined with Mitec’s filter and system design capability to create a new line of coverage-solution products aimed at CDMA operators.

The products consist of Tower Mount Multi-carrier Boosters (TMB), High-Power Multi-carrier Distributed Antenna Systems (DAS) and very low-noise Tower Mount Amplifiers (TMA.

“As demand for wireless grows, broadband coverage is becoming a critical factor,” Mitec said.
