Independent wireless advisory firm Real Wireless today announces the appointment of several new experts. These experts strengthen the company’s ability to analyse and advise on both the commercial and technical opportunities and challenges of wireless technologies and networks.

Professor William Webb is an independent expert specialising in wireless technology and regulatory matters, and his experience brings valuable insight to Real Wireless. William isa former director of Ofcom, where he led major reviews including the Spectrum Framework Review and the development of Spectrum Usage Rights.

Professor Webb commented: “Real Wireless is one of the most technically competent and experienced independent wireless firms around. Real Wireless has played a key role in the evolution of cellular technology and is now at the heart of the 5G debate, taking part in key studies such as the European Commission’s 5G socioeconomic benefits report. Given my experience at Ofcom and roles advising Government and others, the fact that Real Wireless is heavily involved in 5G research and development was particularly appealing.”

Rethink Technology Research co-founder Caroline Gabriel, MA, joins Real Wireless as a market research and telecoms industry analyst. Caroline has been researching and analysing the telecoms and technology industries for many years with an emphasis on wireless and broadband technologies, business models and operator deployment plans.

Ian Miller joins following his departure from Telefónica earlier this year where he worked for over 25 years. As director of mobile access networks at Telefónica he reported to the global CTO and was responsible for mobile radio network development and strategy across the group. His vast knowledge and experience in mobile network innovation, design, architecture, implementation and systems engineering is a great asset for Real Wireless to be able to offer its clients.

In addition to these appointments, Real Wireless has also enhanced its team with the arrival of Dr Mike Smith, an expert in mobile networks, Dr Ilya Averin, a systems analyst and Daniel Bradford a communications and signal-processing expert.

Real Wireless CEO Mark Keenan said: “As these appointments demonstrate, Real Wireless is continuing to go from strength to strength. We’ve been working on a variety of wireless projects across the world, including leading edge 5G projects such as the recently published European Commission 5G Socio-economic study and the ongoing 5G NORMA project. We’re committed to remaining one of the UK’s leading independent wireless advisories, and these appointments will help us deliver even more benefits to our clients.”
