NetComm has triumphed through these challenging times as one of only 15 local vendors to secure a place in the 2010 MIS Strategic 100 (Financial Review). The annual ranking is a vital resource for CIOs requiring an overview of the world's top IT suppliers.

An expert panel of judges nominated NetComm based on a number of key strategic achievements which are detailed in the profile released on Friday 29th October, 2010. Major customers were listed as including: Telstra, Telus, Rogers Communications, Etisalat, Brightstar, Ingram Micro, Cellnet, Harvey Norman, Officeworks, Apple and Harris Technology.

An overview by Stuart Finlayson heralded NetComm's successful delivery of a world first – the BigPond Elite Network Gateway, a 21Mbps 3G Wi-Fi router for Telstra; closely followed by the distribution of similar 3G technologies to carriers throughout the world including: Etisalat and STC (Saudi Telecom Company) in the Middle East, and Telus and Rogers Communications in Canada. Also mentioned was the key partnership established with Apple in launching the NetComm MyZone, a Mobile 3G Wi-Fi Router. NetComm's expansion of its operations throughout the world with the opening of offices in Canada, the Middle East and Europe and the company's 12 month plan to continue its global expansion strategy with the establishment of more offices in key regions worldwide also contributed to the judge's decision.  

NetComm's 3G product road map including mobile broadband routers that support speeds of 42Mbps, 84Mbps and LTE (4G) is particularly significant for CIOs looking to stay up to date.

Judges of the 2010MIS Strategic 100 were impressed by the fierce competition to make it onto the list this year, describing the local IT sector to be 'increasingly vibrant and competitive'.

David Stewart, NetComm's managing director says 'we are proud to have secured a place in the ranking that provides CIOs with a distinctive insight into the 100 most tactically important IT operators.'
