Neul Appoints Stan Boland as CEO

Neul, a startup developing solutions for whitespace wireless, has appointed Stan Boland as its new CEO.

Boland was previously CEO and co-founder of Icera, a UK-based company building 4G/3G/2G cellular chipsets and software which was acquired by Nvidia in 2011 for $367 million. Prior to this, he was CEO and co-founder of Element 14, a UK company building ADSL chipsets and software which was acquired by Broadcom in 2000 for $640 million.

Neul, which is based in Cambridge, U.K., is the first to deploy white space wireless network technology based on the royalty-free, open network standard, Weightless, and the first to develop a single chip white space transceiver.

"I am thrilled to be joining Neul, probably the most exciting company globally in the wireless space. Its technology is strongly complementary to cellular technologies through the provision of coverage and capacity needed for the large numbers of devices intrinsic to industrial applications for the internet", commented Stan Boland.
