About us

Wireless technologies have changed our world in the past 25 years. They will utterly transform it in the next 25. Whether you are an operator, a software or hardware vendor, a regulator, a stadium owner, a transport company or a private business, you need to know how wireless will affect or benefit what you do.

Numerous advisory firms have sprung up to offer guidance to the fast-changing wireless world. Many offer business, market and economic expertise. But only one offers more. Only one offers experts who have actually engineered, designed, supplied, developed and helped to regulate the technologies that now dominate communications.

We have helped to build the wireless world of today.
We are helping to build the wireless world of tomorrow.
We can show you what that wireless world can do for you.
We are Real Wireless.

Our expertise

Mobile, Wi-Fi, broadcast, satellite or business radio? 4G/LTE, 5G, satellite networks, private networks or hybrid networks? Small cells, backhaul, point-to-point, DAS? Device options, infrastructure options and spectrum options? You need to know what they mean — for you and your business.

Ask us. We know every single one of these wireless technologies and wireless enablers — and a lot more. Many of us have made them happen. We are engineers and strategists, market makers and market analysts. We can tell you where wireless has been — and where it is going.

Our wireless supply customers

Operators, regulators, government, and both hardware and software vendors make up many of our customers. They have also supplied many of our experts. Our wireless supply customers trust us because we not only know what we are doing, but we also understand what they are trying to do. They also know that we are fiercely independent. Our advice is carefully researched, evidence based, unbiased and focused on the best solution to a given problem, rather than one that favours a particular technology or approach.

Our wireless user customers

What do football stadiums, airports, transportation organisations, smart cities and national and local government have in common? They have all used our services. We offer a wide range of capabilities for the public and private sectors – consultancy services, management services, preparation of design standards, cost options, coverage advice, technology insights, reports and recommendations to help them get the most out of wireless for their own customers and users. And we are independent. We don’t promote technologies wireless user customers might like. We promote technologies they need.
