Radio Frequency Systems (RFS), a global designer and manufacturer of total-package solutions for wireless and broadcast infrastructure, has today announced the appointment of John Cole to role of CTO.

Cole joined RFS in 2018 as VP Base Station Antennas, bringing more than 35 years of experience in the RF/microwave industry, including senior and executive positions in market leading companies.

During his first 18 months with RFS, he has already refined RFS’s approach to product management to focus on customer driven solutions for 5G. RFS technology and innovation leadership includes the RFS’s FUSION programme, which builds on RFS’s APA (Active Passive Antenna) launched in 2018. It allows operators to stagger the cost of 5G, deploying a passive 4G antenna today that can be seamlessly upgraded to add active 5G mMIMO capacity with plug and play modules in the future.

RFS has seen a growing demand as it has launched an increasingly comprehensive range of products and solutions dedicated to solving challenges faced by operators. Cole will build on this as RFS is leading the network evolution to 5G.

CEO Monika Maurer comment, “We are thrilled to welcome John into the RFS leadership team. He brings a wealth of experience and insight that perfectly supports RFS’s customer-driven approach to R&D and innovation. We look forward to seeing the company continue to go from strength to strength with John over the coming years.”
