London /Europe /Sydney /New York /Toronto /Hong Kong – BAI Communications’ Director of Engineering, UK, Andrew Conway will join the Small Cell Forum board of directors, effective 1 October 2020. Andrew is an expert in wireless cellular networks, specialising in the network design and development aspects of the transport sector, including partner management and industry liaison.
Driving network densification worldwide and accelerating small cell deployments, the Small Cell Forum partners with private enterprise and works with regulators and municipalities to remove commercial and technical barriers, and forge opportunity. This commitment by the Small Cell Forum complements BAI’s vision to become a leading 5G neutral host infrastructure provider in major cities that are developing this technology for industries needing high-speed networks.
Andrew believes that cellular data growth is driving an increasing need for network densification around the world. “There’s a renewed focus on infrastructure network investment and BAI plays a key role as a neutral host network provider. BAI’s networks are strongly aligned to 5G, smart city, small cell, and transport use cases. BAI is a strong supporter of the Small Cell Forum’s mission and it’s a privilege to be able to contribute to its work and help drive its thought leadership.”
“BAI provides extensive cellular coverage through 3G and 4G shared infrastructure and Wi-Fi for commuters traveling underground in cities like New York, Toronto, and Hong Kong, and plans to use this technical and operational expertise to develop new 5G outdoor neutral host services,” said Andrew, who also chairs techUK’s Communications Infrastructure Council.
Globally, the Small Cell Forum gathers requirements from service providers and enterprises and, as directed by the Board, these inputs shape its work in the areas of: 5G small cells; planning, management, and automation; 5G regulation and health concerns; multi-operator neutral hosting; private networks; and edge computing.
“I am delighted to have BAI Communications as a Small Cell Forum member and am excited about the synergy between our organisations. Andrew’s design leadership in making the complex simple is a skill he is using to translate innovative next generation technology possibilities into real world successes at BAI. Having this capability on our board and within our neutral host work stream will accelerate our mission to make mobile infrastructure an accessible resource for industry, enterprise, and communities,” said Small Cell Forum Chair Dr. Prabhakar Chitrapu.
“Andrew’s decades of experience in designing next generation networks and his interest in the societal impact of mobile communications and 5G makes him an excellent candidate for the board position,” added Dr. Chitrapu.
