Innovator. Pioneer. Leader. Risk-taker. Trailblazer.
Through the first two decades of the company’s history, you wouldn’t need one of these words to describe ENCOM Wireless. You’d need them all.
Since our humble beginnings in 1988, ENCOM has not only witnessed the evolution of wireless technology — we’ve actually accelerated it. From oil and gas to traffic management to broadband to full-scale municipal and industrial networks, ENCOM has been a major player every step of the way.
Our bulletproof reputation in the industry is well-earned, since our experience, product knowledge and system expertise grew out of the Western Canadian oil and gas sector, whose extremely harsh, demanding environment spawned some of the most rugged, innovative technology in the wireless world.
Through more than 20 years of exceptional quality and customer service, ENCOM has stayed one step ahead of the pack, as these important dates in company history show:
In 1992, industrial automation sweeps across the oilpatch, as SCADA systems and remote data collection became the focus. ENCOM, whose specialty had been voice communications networks, jumps into the data communications field with both feet, designing and installing some of the first wireless data systems in North America and becoming a major player in the industry.
In 1996, ENCOM again shifts its focus to traffic management systems, a virtual blank slate in the world of wireless data communications. A tireless innovator with a solutions-oriented attitude, the company soon dominates the field and becomes the leader in wireless ITS systems.
In the early years of the new millennium, due to the powerful and reliable wireless systems deployed by ENCOM, wireless becomes widely accepted as a mature technology, and becomes the standard for communications networks worldwide. ENCOM continues to evolve, providing full-service wireless networks — with an accent on future-minded broadband systems — for every application imaginable.
Today, ENCOM has broadened the scope of its market even further, reinventing itself as an expert in full-scale municipal and industrial networks.
With hard-earned industry knowledge, field-proven product quality and an eye on the future, ENCOM continues to set the bar for excellence.
