Malcolm Brew is currently a Senior Knowledge Exchange Fellow on 5G and shared spectrum network design in the StrathSDR research group at University of Strathclyde, and lead technology consultant with Strathclyde spin-out company Neutral Wireless Ltd. He works across several 5G projects, including: 5G enabled NBIoT for energy management, shared spectrum 5G broadcast networks, and rural/remote connectivity (5GRuralFirst shared spectrum networks) in the Orkney Islands in the north of Scotland. Much of Malcolm’s expertise focuses on designing and implementing private 5G mobile and wireless network solutions in partnership with tier2 RAN providers and other industry partners. In 2010, Malcolm set up the UK’s first TV White Space network on the Isle of Bute in Scotland, and thereafter, until 2016, he worked in Kenya with Microsoft and the 4Afrika project where he was part of the team who set up the Mawingu Networks project: connecting people in rural off-grid villages through wireless/WiFi access. Prior to joining University of Strathclyde in 2010, Malcolm worked in Uganda, Rwanda, Kenya and neighbouring countries on 2G rollout.
