Question: Prior to joining iWireless Solutions what is your previous experience?
My last two employments were with MOTOROLA SOLUTIONS and Thales respectively. At MOTOROLA I held the position of EMEA Business Manager leading a team of Go-To Market managers covering all MOTOROLA technologies. While at Thales I worked as Principal Radio Engineer responsible for the technical aspect and solution compliance of bids and projects.
Prior to joining Thales I worked for Red-M as radio design manager where I led a team of 5 engineers designing PMR, cellular and Wi-Fi networks.
Question: What drew you to iWireless Solutions?
Having worked in the wireless industry for the last 14 years covering both commercial and technical aspects, I felt the opportunity offered to me by iWireless Solutions as being a natural progression in my career that would allow me to leverage on my experience thus far and be at the forefront of wireless technologies.
Question: Tell us a bit about the current/planned future projects you are working on
I’m currently delivering a ‘world class’ high speed wireless network in London and I am looking forward to start working on large scale deployments of small cells.
Question: What is your experience of iWireless Solutions so far?
I have been at iWireless Solutions for just 6 weeks, and yet, I feel that I am a fully integrated part of the team, understanding the company culture, which is partly due to the fact that I have worked with some iWireless Solutions employees in the past, and because it appears that we all share the same enthusiasm about telecommunications in general and wireless technologies in particular.
Question: What, in your view, is the best technology invention in the last 10 years?
Li-Fi or Light Fidelity is, in my view, one of the best technology invention of the last 10 years. It was first demonstrated back in 2011 and since then it grew quite significantly. It is a technology similar to Wi-Fi that utilises light instead of radio waves to propagate. This can revolutionise the way we communicate wirelessly by delivering much faster data speeds than conventional Wi-Fi and by reusing existing lighting infrastructure.
