The company raised 9.3 million funding round which is one of the biggest in this year. KNL Networks is based in Oulu and it has additional offices in Helsinki, Norway and UK.
The company is based on research made at CWC (Centre for Wireless Communications). It was established 2011 and it has 23 employees.
