Nokia's Steve Hwang joins the ACCF board
Nokia’s Steve Hwang, a well-respected expert in the field of mission-critical communications, has become a board member of the Australasian Critical Communications Forum (ACCF).
The appointment was confirmed at the ACCF’s annual general meeting in December.
Hwang, who has more than 20 years of experience in the telecommunications market, is a committee member of Safe-Net Forum and Smart City WG, 5G Forum, in South Korea.
At Nokia he is responsible for business development in the company’s APAC government and cities segment, including end customer engagement and strategic alliance with industry partners and telco operators in areas of public safety, smart cities, defence and government-driven broadband initiatives.
In a statement, the ACCF said that it welcomes Hwang to the board and looks forward to “the valuable contribution he will make to our endeavours in Australasia”.
The ACCF, a chapter of TCCA, advocates on behalf of mission- and business-critical stakeholders in the Australasian region in respect to the development and establishment of global non-proprietary mission- and business-critical LMR and LTE/5G broadband standards.
The previous term’s ACCF directors were unanimously re-elected to the board at the 2020 AGM for a further term.
