Airwave opens Dubai office

Airwave recently played host to guests from the British Embassy, Dubai Silicon Oasis (a 100% government-owned free zone established to facilitate and promote modern technology-based industries) and a number of supporting agencies at the official opening of the Airwave Middle East operation in Dubai. 

“The opening of the Dubai office is in response to increasing demand for our expertise and knowledge in building, maintaining and operating Airwave’s Emergency Services Network (ESN) in Great Britain. The office will serve as a hub to advise Middle Eastern customers on mission critical communications,” says Mike McKone, Director Middle East, Airwave.


Airwave’s CEO, Richard Bobbett and COO, John Lewis also attended the opening, which included the Director of Trade for UKTI in the UAE, and senior members from the Free Trade Zone Enterprise. 

“The opening of our office demonstrates our genuine commitment to doing business here,” says Richard Bobbett, Airwave CEO. Our offering in the Middle East will mirror our approach in Great Britain and we look forward to working with our customers to deliver capabilities that will enable them to take advantage of new voice and data technologies both today and well into the future.” 

Dubai is the fourth country in which Airwave has established a presence (Australia, Germany and Great Britain) and reflects a natural progression for the company which has secured a world-leading reputation for designing, delivering and maintaining the mission critical communications network used by 100% of Britain’s emergency services.
