For 30 years, the Rohde & Schwarz global technology group has stood for cutting-edge technologies and excellent on-site service in the United Arab Emirates (UAE). A strong position in the local market and precise focus on customer support helped the company remain a success.

Abu Dhabi, May 27, 2024 — Rohde & Schwarz Emirates L.L.C., a partnership between Rohde & Schwarz GmbH & Co. KG (Germany) and Capital Investment UAE, was founded in May 1994.

“Over the last 30 years, we have become a long-term partner and it has been a great privilege to witness the incredible transformation of the UAE,” said Patrick Brodda, Managing Director of Rohde & Schwarz Emirates L.L.C.

From its humble beginnings as a small office in Abu Dhabi, Rohde & Schwarz Emirates L.L.C. has become the first private company in the UAE to be named a competence center for test, measurement and calibration of electronic equipment in all fields of modern communications (2007). Rohde & Schwarz Emirates L.L.C. still provides leading communications and radio technology products.

Three decades of high-quality, innovation-driven technology:

  • 1999 was the right time to enter the mobile communications market with test and measurement products, thanks to growing demand fueled by the worldwide boom in GSM telephones.
  • Constant commitment to technical innovations and high-quality standards also resulted in major broadcast and media collaborations. In the following years, Emirates Media commissioned Rohde & Schwarz Emirates L.L.C. to equip and deliver most of the transmitter stations in the UAE for FM radio and VHF/UHF television.
  • Since early 2000, Rohde & Schwarz Emirates L.L.C. has been a strong and reliable partner for sustainable collaboration in secure communications, communications intelligence and spectrum monitoring with the UAE Armed Forces and government authorities. Our relocation to the Aldar HQ building in 2014 not only reinforced this dedication but also facilitated a closer alignment with the defense and security sectors.
  • More recently, the GCAA awarded Rohde & Schwarz Emirates L.L.C. the radio replacement project and the company delivered a series of radio communication upgrades as well as innovative mobile ATC solutions at the Sheikh Zayed Air Navigation Centre in Abu Dhabi. The company’s strong in-country presence and comprehensive system capabilities have made Rohde & Schwarz Emirates L.L.C. a strategic and reliable partner for the UAE armed forces.
  • Rohde & Schwarz Emirates L.L.C. has consistently demonstrated an unwavering dedication to serving the UAE with cutting-edge technologies and exceptional services for 30 years. The commitment extends beyond the borders of the UAE with an R&S Service-Hub in Abu Dhabi that has a strong local expert team to support customers across the Middle East.

Patrick Brodda, Managing Director of Rohde & Schwarz Emirates L.L.C. said with satisfaction: “We are proud to have forged long-lasting relationships and look forward to maintaining our reputation as a trusted and reliable telecommunications solution provider for our customers in the UAE. Our workforce has employees who have been living in the UAE for over 15 years. This country has become our home and the Rohde & Schwarz vision of ensuring a safer and connected world is a major motivation for us.” 

Customer success has always been an important strategic pillar. Sales, project management, system engineering and service experts in the UAE help the company serve and support customers with mission critical solutions over the entire life cycle, directly on-site where the solutions are implemented. The team has members from 11 different countries and provides local access to the company’s best capabilities and expertise.

Rohde & Schwarz Emirates L.L.C. has continuously made large investments into service equipment and employee training to ensure quality consistent with today’s and tomorrow’s international standards.

Rohde & Schwarz is striving for a safer and connected world with its Test & Measurement, Technology Systems and Networks & Cybersecurity Divisions. For 90 years, the global technology group has pushed technical boundaries with developments in cutting-edge technologies. The company's leading-edge products and solutions empower industrial, regulatory and government customers to attain technological and digital sovereignty.

The privately owned, Munich based company can act independently, long-term and sustainably. Rohde & Schwarz generated a net revenue of EUR 2.78 billion in the 2022/2023 fiscal year (July to June). On June 30, 2023, Rohde & Schwarz had around 13,800 employees worldwide.
