VantagePoint Venture Partners led the round with all existing investors -- Austin Ventures, Sequoia Capital, Dali Hook Partners, Genesis Campus and Qualcomm Inc. contributing additional capital.

Having raised a total of $58M in capital investment since 2001, Spatial Wireless will use the proceeds from this new round for further market expansion and building a world-class customer support organization.

Spatial Wireless’s CEO, Pardeep Kohli says, "Spatial Wireless has experienced tremendous commercial success with tier 1 mobile operators in the U.S. adopting distributed mobile switching as a critical element of their core networks. As we expand into international markets, we are seeing the same commercial and technical fundamentals that have driven U.S. operators also apply to international operators."

In the past year, Spatial Wireless has commercially deployed its products in multiple networks, domestic and international. In addition to this momentum, the company is actively pursuing strategic partnerships with large infrastructure providers to market and resell Spatial Wireless products.

”As mobile operators look for ways to dramatically reduce their operating and capital expenditures, Spatial Wireless is enabling mobile service providers to immediately improve profitability.” said Eric Ver Ploeg, partner with VantagePoint Venture Partners.
