PCTEL to Expand into Private Wireless IoT
Tuesday, August 02, 2016 | Comments

PCTEL announced that it is expanding its network engineering services offerings to serve the needs of private wireless networks, including the internet of things (IoT).

A statement said the company has established a leadership position in engineering services for public wireless networks in venues such as stadiums, college campuses and airports. PCTEL also designs and manufactures antennas and site solutions for a wide variety of private wireless networks. The company will build on that combined expertise to provide solutions for private wireless networks such as rail, smart grid and industrial IoT.

To support these initiatives, the company announced a new leadership team for its engineering services group. The group will report to Jeff Miller, senior vice president of global sales and services for RF solutions. Javier Herrero was named vice president, network engineering operations and Jay Maciejewski is vice president, global services business development. Maciejewski will manage the sales and business development for both the subject matter expert (SME) staffing business and the private and public engineering services operation.

"As the public and private wireless markets converge, PCTEL's network engineering expertise is increasingly relevant to markets that we have traditionally served with antennas and site solutions,” said Miller. “This makes us uniquely positioned to take advantage of the explosion of the IoT. Jay and Javier have grown our engineering services business by solving complex engineering challenges. In their new roles, they will be able to draw upon a deep bench of engineering talent in a wide variety of practice areas.”

Maciejewski has played a key role in increasing PCTEL's engineering services business since joining the company in 2012. Prior to joining PCTEL, he served in engineering director or management roles for several major wireless carriers, neutral host firms and consulting organizations.

Herrero has managed key parts of PCTEL's network engineering services operations since joining the company in 2013. Herrero has more than 15 years of experience in the wireless industry, including key project management and engineering roles at major cellular carriers.
