“We are very pleased that a longtime carrier customer has chosen two new Sonim designs to be part of their portfolio in 2022,” said John Graff, Chief Marketing Officer at Sonim. “We now have design win awards from the three largest US carriers for new products that we expect to introduce starting in 2H 2021 through Q3 2022.
