NetComm nets two more ABA100 Australian Business Awards for Innovation


Australia’s NetComm Wireless, a global powerhouse developing cutting edge wireless, networking, IIoT, M2M, FTTdp and CTTdp technology, has been recognised yet again for its market-leading innovations.

NetComm Wireless has been "recognised as an ABA100 winner in two categories of The Australian Business Awards 2016: Business Innovation and Technology Innovation for its fixed wireless technology, a network terminating device that connects homes and businesses to superfast 4G LTE fixed wireless networks in Australia, the US and globally.’

The awards recognise NetComm Wireless' achievements in promoting excellence through innovative business and technological initiatives, something the company does consistently, winning not just awards but world-class customers on a global basis.

David Stewart, chief executive and managing director of NetComm Wireless, said: ”We have the agility needed to sustain innovation across all areas of our business in a fast changing environment and it is a tremendous honour to have received the Australian Business Award for Business Innovation for the sixth consecutive year.

“Our 'Listen. Innovate. Solve.' approach allows us to continually transform our business, and develop innovative bespoke solutions for our customers and partners worldwide.

"Innovation is all about finding better ways to do things and we are pleased to have won the Technology Innovation award for our fixed wireless network terminating devices as we continue to work with our operator partners to bring high-speed broadband to rural, regional and outer-urban homes and businesses in Australia, the US and Europe,” Stewart continued.

As NetComm Wireless itself says, its "fixed wireless technology delivers guaranteed performance and an optimal network and customer experience utilising specialised hardware design, software development and project management".

Australian Business Awards programme director Tara Johnston said: “For over a decade, The Australian Business Awards have recognised organisations that prioritise innovation and technology as drivers of local and international markets; and provide their clients with solutions to modern challenges by prioritising innovative practices that continually push the boundaries of what's possible.

"The ABA100 Winners have demonstrated a commitment to developing forward-looking solutions to challenges. This adaptability has cemented their position as major influencers in their respective industries.

“These organisations not only position themselves as industry leaders, but also push the wider business community towards excellence. Those organisations that can continue to evolve alongside ever changing business models will secure their longevity, continually contributing to the marketplace by disrupting the status quo in a positive way.".

Each year, we are told, "the ABA100 Winners are recognised through a variety of different award categories that demonstrate transformative business and product innovation".

"Corporate, government and non-government organisations are recognised for their ability to drive innovation through the application of technical expertise in the management of industry leading initiatives, and for the research and development of high-performing products and services."

NetComm Wireless also announced that it is exhibiting at CTIA Super Mobility 2016 at the Sands Expo in Las Vegas from 7-9 September, where it will be exhibiting its latest 3G/4G LTE M2M, Fixed Wireless and Fibre to the distribution Point (FttdP) technologies at stand 5152, and interested parties can book a meeting.

In recent news, the company announced the opening of its first US-based R&D facility in Sunshine, Florida, while also adding to its R&D staff in Melbourne and at its headquarters in Sydney, Australia.

The company recently won the ACOMM Award for IoT Innovation at the 10th Annual ACOMMS Awards, Australia’s telecommunications awards for excellence – the fifth successive time it has won an ACOMM Innovation award.

At the time, Stewart said: "We have worked hard to innovate a technology that redefines the way that power is managed and it is truly an honour to have been presented the newly introduced ACOMM Award for IoT innovation as we continue to engineer technologies that address some of the world's most demanding challenges.” 

NetComm Wireless was awarded the IoT Innovator honour for its Smart Home Gateway (NTC-70), a world first Internet of Things (IoT) device designed to transform the future of energy management by lowering household emissions and sustaining energy efficiency through the connection and remote management of energy meters, sensors, heat pumps and home automation devices in real-time.

The 10th Annual ACOMMS was also the venue for the celebration of Stewart as Communications Ambassador 2016 for his 34-plus year legacy of growing the NetComm from three decades ago into the global wired and wireless technology and customer solutions and problem-solving service player that it is today.

Indeed, NetComm Wireless is itself a world-class company to work with and help global businesses, as it works with customers to actively create the future, thanks to innovative evolution and improvement to every new generation of networking products and solutions across the cutting edge of modern ultrafast wired and wireless connectivity, alongside Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) and M2M (Machine-to-Machine) technology, and both Fibre and Cable to the distrubution point (FttdP and CttdP) and more.

For more, I spoke to Steve Collins, CTO of NetComm Wireless last week in a video interview – you can read the article and see the video here.

So, 2016 has deservedly been a huge year for NetComm Wireless thus far, and with still four and a half months to go, it should get even better yet!
