Nethercomm Corporation, the leading innovator of subterranean broadband communications appoints two new key management team members. Nethercomm's breakthrough technology is set to deliver the next generation of broadband services to end users by dramatically driving down the cost of broadband, increasing available bandwidth to end users and expanding the accessibility of ultra high-speed broadband connectivity.
David Baier and Jim OÂNeal will report directly to Ann Nunally, President and Chief Operating Officer of Nethercomm Corporation, who said ÂThis announcement of Baier and OÂNeal joining our team reflects NethercommÂs need to expand our management team due to the significant opportunities which have been created by our rapidly expanding dominance of Broadband delivery through natural gas pipelinesÂ. She went on to say, Â, ÂGas and Broadband industry leaders teaming with NethercommÂs BiG technology will enable a vital link to todayÂs most advanced communications technology available, with minimal deployment effortsÂ.
David Baier will be responsible for developing and managing strategic relationships with utility operators. He has 30 years experience in the international civil engineering, utility, and project finance field as a former Vice President of Harza Engineering Company, now Montgomery Watson Harza. Baier said, ÂIÂm proud to say that IÂve known NethercommÂs Chief Executive Officer, Dr. Patrick Nunally, for over 13 yearsÂ. He went on to say, Â In the past, Pat and I have worked together to launch technologies into regulated utilities and I again look forward to launching NethercommÂs new, revolutionary broadband delivery technology.Â
Jim OÂNeal will be responsible for developing and managing NethercommÂs strategic relationships with customer premises equipment and network product development partners. His experience includes leading large scale systems and network projects for Unisys Systems, as well as all levels of network engineering and project management. JimÂs management of NethercommÂs critical alliances from a technical and logistical planning perspective is crucial. ÂNethercomm is a steamroller of a technology which is ready to roll over the broadband industry,Â said Jim OÂNeal, he went on to say Âthe question is who will be part of the steamroller and who will be part of the pavement.Â
Nethercomm's technology enables broadband companies to deliver video, internet and voice to customers and businesses wirelessly. This technology is delivered through existing natural gas pipelines using Ultra Wideband (UWB) wireless radio technology. Utilizing "Broadband in Gas" (BiG) technology, signals travel inside the natural gas pipelines from a local broadband network node to a homeowner or business. UWB wireless radio technology traverses through the underground pathway formed by the natural gas pipeline, aided by the unique nature of ultra wide transmissions, providing twice the connectivity of fiber optics. By keeping the signal inside grounded conduit creates an unlimited private spectrum, very low-noise within the operating environment, and zero conflict with external applications. NethercommÂs core technology harnesses basic physics for super-efficient wireless signal transmission.
Nethercomm technology employs a "carrier-free" architecture which does not require the use of high frequency carrier generation hardware, carrier modulation hardware, stabilizers, frequency and phase discrimination hardware, or other devices employed in conventional frequency domain communication systems. NethercommÂs Intellectual property dramatically increases the bandwidth of and can be inexpensively deployed with minimal modifications to the existing natural gas delivery networks.
Nethercomm is a private Delaware Corporation, developing innovative and proprietary communication technologies for the fast-growing broadband and wireless markets. The companyÂs portfolio of patents encompasses what is believed to be the fundamental subterranean broadband communications and includes additional patents pending to protect its technologies and architectures.
