Cambridge Consultants is a world leader in wireless communications, with one of the largest independent wireless development teams in the world. The group works across the entire wireless landscape - from high volume consumer applications such as portable internet-based devices, through to professional high-performance systems including the air traffic control radios used to govern US airspace. This breadth of wireless activity provides tremendous variety to our team members. The markets that we address include telecommunications, healthcare, industrial, satellite, consumer and automotive. Examples of our wireless design includes the first digital patient monitor in the medical WMTS band, the WiMAX PHY reference design adopted as the gold standard for European type approval testing, a professional intercom used at the Olympic Games and within professional broadcasting studios, satellite handsets, as well as key technologies fuelling the rollout of the latest cellular systems.
Our technical capabilities span the full spectrum, from software development for embedded and distributed cloud applications, through deep data analytics, machine learning and behavioural modelling, to connectivity, IoT development and radio systems.
We’re working at the frontier of Machine Learning; a vital, transformative technology, developing systems that leverage deep learning techniques to achieve unprecedented performance in a huge range of applications. To support this, we have The Digital Greenhouse which is a purpose-built facility designed for discovering, developing and testing machine learning approaches in a fast, secure environment.
