Ray Williamson

ray-williamsonRay has been involved in studying, designing and launching small cell solutions for almost 15 years. As an engineer in the late nineties he conducted field trials of the microcellular algorithms which we became the enabler for GSM's first "layered networks". He then moved on to study in-building solutions and managed Motorola's first dedicated in-building picocell trials; incorporating studies into indoor propagation models and automatic frequency planning. After a break where he led Motorola's GSM/UMTS Product Management Organisation, Ray's focus returned to small cells for LTE. During this time Ray and his colleagues developed a new small architecture which has evolved into NSN's Flexi Zone solution. Most recently Ray headed EMEA Product Management & Business Development for NSN's small cell portfolio which includes metrocell, femto and WiFi solutions.
