Justin Milne joins NetComm Wireless board


Justin Milne - who recently resigned as chairman of Internet kiosk maker PieNETWORKS, has been made a non-executive director of NetComm Wireless.

NetComm Wireless' chairman, John Brennan, said: "With substantial telecommunications industry experience, Mr Milne will make a significant contribution to NetComm Wireless' global expansion as the company strengthens its wireless and M2M presence in domestic and overseas markets."

Milne is currently the deputy chairman of Quickflix and a non-executive director of Tabcorp Holdings. He is also chairman of the National Basketball League and a board member of the Sydney Children's Hospital Network (Randwick and Westmead) and of Basketball Australia. Prior to these roles he was group managing director at Telstra BigPond, CEO of The Microsoft Network and of OzEmail.

NetComm Wireless recently changed its name from NetComm to reflect its shift of focus away from fixed line and consumer communications technology to wireless equipment for telcos and the machine-to-machine market.

With today’s proprietary power-hungry and high cost transceivers and DSP, how is migration to 400G networks going to be a viable option?

PacketLight's next-generation standardised solutions may be the answer. Click below to read the full article.
