Ofcom Spectrum Advisory Board

I’m delighted to announce that I have just been appointed to the Ofcom Spectrum Advisory Board (www.osab.org.uk). OSAB provides independent advice to Ofcom (www.ofcom.org.uk) on strategic spectrum management issues. It provides input directly to Ofcom’s main board. This gives me a great opportunity to gain deeper knowledge of (and potentially to influence) Ofcom’s future direction on spectrum matters. I also get to interact with some very interesting people, namely:

  • Sir David Brown – Chairman of Motorola Limited
  • Dr David Cleevely – Founder of Analysys and previous Chairman of Analysys Limited
  • Professor Leela Damodaran – leads the Information, Technology and Society Research Group at Loughborough University
