CommAgility, the leading UK wireless technology company based on Loughborough University Science and Enterprise Park, today received its second Queen's Award.

In 2013, the company won a Queen’s Award for Enterprise in International Trade. Since then, CommAgility has appeared in the Sunday Times Hiscox Tech Track 100 list of fastest growing technology companies in 2015, and featured in the Deloitte UK Fast 50.

Today’s Queen’s Award for Enterprise in Innovation recognises the potential of the company’s AMC-RF2x2 module – a wideband, highly flexible dual channel RF card supporting 4G wireless communications.

Based on LUSEP, CommAgility has a second office at the TecTrum Technologiezentrum für Duisburg in Germany, following its acquisition in 2015 of MIMOon, an LTE software developer.

The company exports around the world, with customers in over 15 countries including the USA, China, South Korea, India, France and Israel.

The award was presented to the company by Lady Gretton, Lord-Lieutenant of Leicestershire, in a special presentation at Loughborough University.

Edward Young, managing director at CommAgility, said: “We’re delighted to be recognised again, with our second Queen’s Award in three years, and particularly pleased it is for innovation, which is the backbone of CommAgility’s success.”
