NetComm Wireless Limited is pleased to announce that its CEO and Managing Director, David Stewart, has been recognised for his significant and valuable contribution to the Australian communications industry after being presented with the Communications Ambassador 2016 award at the 10th annual Communications Alliance ACOMM Awards Dinner last night in Sydney.
Stewart established NetComm Wireless as a leading global developer of Fixed Wireless, wireless Machine-to-Machine and Industrial Internet of Things devices, and helped to advance the Australian communications industry through the introduction of a number of first-to-market data communications technologies over three decades.
Through his longstanding commitment to innovation, Stewart expanded NetComm Wireless into global markets through initiatives impacting a broad range of industry segments including building automation, transportation, mining services and energy management; and bringing city-equivalent broadband to regional, remote and outer urban areas in Australia, the US and Europe with Fixed Wireless.
Stewart says, "These are exciting times for our industry and it is a privilege to have been presented with our industry's top accolade for individual achievement. We have come a very long way since we first began connecting people and machines via dial-up and I am tremendously proud of where NetComm Wireless is today,"
The Australian Communications Ambassador award is the highest honour presented by ACOMMS Communications Alliance and CommsDay each year, with previous recipients including David Thodey and Stuart Lee.
For the past 34 years, NetComm Wireless has developed a portfolio of world first data communication products, and is now a globally recognised wireless innovator.
