Out of the woods with advanced connectivity

NetComm develops fixed and mobile broadband technologies covering HSPA+, LTE, machine-to-machine (M2M) and fiber access devices for home, business and industrial applications. The Company specializes in designing rugged 3G and 4G products to provide reliable data communications for resource hungry applications in areas such as forestry.
