By Mazen Chmaytelli, President of the MulteFire Alliance
MulteFire Alliance momentum and activities are heating up as we enter the last days of summer. We recently wrapped up one of the Alliance’s most successful Open Days in Espoo, Finland (read about it here), which drew members and interested stakeholders from across Europe to learn about advancements in MulteFire™ technology through presentations and panels. The gathering also gave us an opportunity to recognize the significant efforts from some of the Alliance’s most impactful contributors over the past year.
As we turn our attention to the remainder of the year, I would also like to highlight another noteworthy milestone for the organization. Over the last 18 months the MulteFire Alliance has tripled its membership, bringing our current membership to 44. Since our last new member blog in February, the Alliance has added five new members.

It operates in challenging locations around the world ranging from offshore to deep beneath the earth, and from the Antarctic to desert regions. Redline networks are deployed by oil and gas, mining and utility companies to manage onshore and offshore assets, by militaries to secure battlefield communications, by municipalities to remotely monitor infrastructure, and by telecom service providers to deliver premium services. Redline platforms are designed to augment existing communications to rapidly give next generation capabilities.

Its New York City purpose-built network is the infrastructure that underlies and enables connectivity in today’s mobile world.
I am pleased to welcome these new members to the Alliance as they demonstrate the ever-expanding diversity in the MulteFire community – bringing expertise from their respective fields, as well as a shared interest in and enthusiasm for the technical advancement and market success of MulteFire technology.
Along with other Alliance board members and officers, I will be at MWC Americas in September. If you’re interested in meeting in person to learn more about membership options and benefits, contact press@MulteFire.org to schedule.
