Peter Clemons becomes global advisor for Genaker
Respected critical communications expert Peter Clemons — founder of consultancy Quixoticity — has reached an agreement with Spanish MCPTT specialist Genaker to become its global advisor as the company looks to expand internationally.
Based in Barcelona, Spain, Genaker was founded in 2003 by Nokia R&D executives and engineers, focusing on broadband PTT solutions from Day 1. The company focuses on a differentiated value proposition, delivering the flexible solutions aligned with 3GPP MCX standards.
Clemons — well known to Australian audiences through his articles for Critical Comms and his speaking appearances at Comms Connect — has 23 years of experience in the global critical communications industry, having worked with a significant number of the major industry players around the world to bring best-practice solutions to a wide range of mission-critical and business-critical customers.
Clemons is a former director and board member of TCCA and a current active member of 3GPP and ETSI, helping to define the next generation of mission-critical communications solutions as the world moves towards 5G.
“Peter Clemons is highly respected within the global critical communications community following well over two decades of continuous, dedicated service, always promoting global best practice and taking a rigorous, user-centric approach,” said Miquel Teixidor, founder and CEO of Genaker.
“Working together with Peter demonstrates Genaker’s ambition to take a leading role in defining the next generation of mission-critical solutions.”
Genaker’s solutions are capable of integration with external systems, from public or private LTE (and future 5G) networks with high QoS and prioritisation, to interconnection with existing two-way radio systems such as TETRA, TETRAPOL or P25.
Genaker is a member of TCCA, has taken part in — and will continue to take part in — ETSI MCX Plugtests, and has also received funding from European Union’s Horizon 2020 program.
In a statement, Genaker and Quixoticity said they are joining forces to work closely together with the global critical communications community to accelerate the development and deployment of next-generation solutions to create safer world for all.
“It is a real honour to work together with Genaker to develop and offer the very best services to mission-critical users across the world,” said Clemons.
“We will work closely with all like-minded people and organisations within our community to accelerate the next stage of technological and organisational developments required to enable the future, global 5G-enabled society. These are truly exciting times for critical communications.”
