AirTies has opened a new R&D center in Austin, TX, including a test home intended to replicate real-world usage of in-home WiFi, to support customers in North America. Mujdat Pakkan, EVP of customer programs, has relocated to oversee the new Austin facility.

"We're very excited to open our first R&D center outside of Europe in order to support the growing market opportunity in North America," said Philippe Alcaras, CEO of AirTies. "Austin's central location and pool of incredible, high-tech talent made it a very appealing choice for us. Looking ahead, we expect North American Internet and TV service providers to drive significant business for us, and this facility is built with them in mind."

In addition to an R&D office, AirTies' test home in Austin will support automated in-home WiFi testing using the company's AirBot system. AirBots are robots that can be controlled remotely to travel on tracks throughout a home carrying various WiFi devices to conduct use tests in a multi-floor dwelling.

AirTies' international headquarters and R&D centers are in Turkey, and the company has other R&D offices in the UK and Greece, along with other offices in the United States (Sunnyvale, CA), and China.
