‘Modest Massarella content to keep his RFeye on the long-term prize’
Wireless industry entrepreneur Alistair Massarella is not the type to walk the streets bawling his accomplishments through a loudhailer.
He prefers to let his teams and technology do the talking and the understated but effective approach has paid dividends over a long period for this quiet man of the Cambridge cluster.
It will not be obvious to many that the modest Massarella has founded or cofounded four companies while he has been in Cambridge – two of which have been sold and two others that are still thriving.
Adaptive Broadband was sold to a US company for $18 million; Cambridge Broadband is still going well, Custom Autotech was sold to a UK company and CRFS is profitable and increasing sales at an impressive strike rate.
CRFS – cofounded by Alistair and another serial comms business builder, David Cleevely, in 2007 – pioneered the concept of remote, distributed, real-time networks of spectrum sensors for continuous 24/7 monitoring of the RF environment.
The RFeye Node is considered the most cost-effective wideband RF sensor available on the market today, fully networkable with outstanding speed, sensitivity and versatility and housed in a robust enclosure designed to withstand extreme environmental conditions.
The new RFeye Nexus receiver extends the state of the art for high end SIGINT and TSCM applications, offering unsurpassed speed and RF performance, a massive 80 MHz instantaneous bandwidth and full rate PCIe data streaming.
