Recent GSMA statements projected that India would become the second largest mobile broadband market globally within four years, with over 367 million mobile broadband connections by 2016. In the same time period, the United States is expected to account for 337 million mobile broadband connections, while China is forecasted to be the largest mobile broadband market, with an estimated 639 million mobile broadband connections by 2016.

“The addition of WPI Group to our presence in India amplifies our ability to serve customers in this fast-growing market,” said Phil Richards, vice president of sales at Vitesse. “Carriers in the region recognize that unique technologies, like Vitesse’s IEEE1588v2 VeriTime™ network timing technology, offer an efficient way to deploy new generations of their network systems. We remain strategically committed to enabling the transition to 4G/LTE and cloud computing.”

In 2011, Vitesse announced an exclusive relationship with WPG subsidiary, WPG Americas, to distribute Vitesse products in the Americas. WPG is well reputed for their team of highly-technical experts, service and support, as well as their strength in reference design development for varied applications and markets.
