David Stewart, CEO and Managing Director, NetComm Wireless
NetComm Wireless is a global provider of wireless solutions that are designed to enable a smarter world. Over the past 34 years, NetComm Wireless has evolved to provide regional homes and business in Australia and the US with fixed wireless broadband, where they previously had little or no coverage.

Focusing primarily on the research, development and implementation of Fixed Wireless networks and M2M Wireless solutions, NetComm emphasise a research methodology predicated on customer collaboration and data analysis. The company strives towards maintaining the capacity to innovate technologies developed ahead of market trends whilst also maintaining global partnerships and ensuring their processes are scalable for large-scale projects.

Netcomm utilise development plans that are designed to manage specific stages, from concept to project completion. Complex large-scale projects, such as the NBN Fixed Wireless rollout, involve the integration of their technology into overall solutions, meaning that each phase of the development plan needs to align with partner requirements and specifications. Within this process Netcomm focus on the importance of their people in ensuring innovative solutions to emerging challenges. There is thus a heavy emphasis on ensuring the research and development team is well funded and appropriately poised to drive innovation.

Within this process challenges are an expectation and are dealt with in a manner that’s built into Netcomm’s organisational structure. This risk mitigation system is designed to prepare them for unforeseen events, such as the inability to procure components or the identification of bugs. This has proven integral in their ability to succeed on large-scale projects that suffer greatly from even minor delays.

NetComm Wireless have been recognised with a Business Innovation Award in the Australian Business Awards 2016 for their focus on innovation, both internally and externally.
