Many people in the industry have been very much interested in knowing about the latest developments of Rosenberger, the high-tech telecommunications leader, especially after the spinoff of its Antenna and DAS wireless coverage product portfolio. Laurence Miao, the vice president of Rosenberger Asia Pacific, was interviewed by Telecom Review to outline his insights, together with the outlook for growing Rosenberger’s business in the region.

Why did Rosenberger decide to spin off the antenna and DAS wireless coverage business? What has been the progress made thus far?

The communication markets are being driven by high growth dynamics. This situation requires the business activities to be realigned with a clear and purposeful focus for the organization. The spin-off of the Antenna and DAS wireless coverage business will enable Rosenberger to focus more on both its long-tradition connectivity and related interconnect solution business, together, to continuously increase R&D investment in such fields of focus, build more dedicated teams and establish a resilient and more efficient supply chain for providing the best services for global and local customers. In terms of the progress of spinoff, due to the lockdown in some administration bureaus, there was a delay in the formal steps to be accomplished. But now, the formal and legal steps which need to be documented and registered in various legislation are reaching their closing point.

What are the main business segments and solutions of Rosenberger today and in the future?

In addition to the continued efforts to expand the existing automotive as well as semicon and test businesses, Rosenberger has integrated the following businesses and created a new global “Business Area of Interconnect” with the aim of consolidating Rosenberger's global resources, enhancing global synergy and collaboration, advancing the progress and efficiency of R&D, improving responsiveness to customers and, most importantly, further strengthening our global and local services.
