If the future is highly mobile oriented then the people who make the antenna that power this wireless world are in a powerful position. Which is why it’s perhaps not surprising that Ubidyne, a German company which makes an innovative antenna embedded radio platform which eliminates the need for coaxial cables on cell antenna towers and masts, has raised $14.4 million in Series C funding.
The round was lead by GIMV and joined by previous backers Baytech Venture Capital, Doughty Hanson and TVM Capital. Accel Partners is a past participant but is not mentioned in this latest announcement, though Ubidyne is still listed as a portfolio company.
Ubidyne has an antenna embedded radio system which reduces energy consumption, enables simpler deployment, and increases the coverage and capacity of mobile communications networks. Gimv is a Belgium-based private equity and venture capital provider and a major European and international market player.
