Global In-Building Wireless Provider Names Long-Time Wireless Industry Leader to Head Operations Group
Dallas, TX – December 13, 2017 – Zinwave, a global provider of wideband distributed network solutions for in-building wireless, today announced that it has named James Martin as Vice President of Operations. Mr. Martin will be responsible for day to day operations, supply chain, contract manufacture partnerships as well as strategic operational initiatives and continuous improvement within the wireless business at Zinwave.
“Zinwave’s distributed wireless solutions offer the highest performance with the lowest total cost of ownership, and sales are accelerating quickly,” said Martin. “I look forward to keeping the production side of the business running at top speed as our market expands.”
Prior to joining Zinwave, Mr. Martin was Sr. Manager at TE Connectivity (formerly ADC/LGC Wireless) for more than 16 years. Martin’s leadership helped TE Connectivity emerges as a top-tier DAS manufacturer in the wireless space. Early in his career, Martin was employed at Hughes Network Systems (HNS) and was responsible for the design, deployment and optimization of over 500 macro cell sites across the southeastern United States. During this time, he was also instrumental in defining the first small cell systems designed and deployed by HNS.
“Zinwave has a class-leading technology for in-building cellular and public safety wireless, but we also need to make sure that our products are produced to the highest standards,” said Scott Willis, president and CEO at Zinwave. “James’ extensive experience in the wireless space will help us ensure that our business processes are as outstanding as our distributed wireless solutions.”
Zinwave’s UNItivity platform is the only truly future-proof, universal wireless access solution on the market. UNItivity’s unique wideband architecture breaks the cycle of endless DAS upgrades because it supports any frequency from 150 MHz to 2700 MHz, accommodating current and future wireless services without hardware upgrades. In addition, UNItivity’s streamlined, all-fiber architecture makes it more reliable and much easier to install than traditional DAS solutions. Zinwave has a global customer base and is a subsidiary of McWane Inc. (www.mcwane.com), a privately held US manufacturing company and owners of a global group of wireless technology companies.
