Joel Hariton

Joel Hariton, Advisor

Joel Hariton has over 40 years of experience in deploying and operating wireless networks. He has successfully pioneered new network technologies in rapidly growing commercial operations on 6 continents. Most of these entities were start-up businesses established under harsh conditions. Many were the first cellular services in the country where they were launched.

During the 14 years as the lead engineering executive at Millicom International Cellular, Joel played a key role in growing the company from a market value of $14 million to over $3 billion. As Group CTO and Senior Vice President, he contributed to this rapid expansion through efficient planning and oversight of engineering and technical operations. He carefully managed the expansion of the engineering team from under 35 staff to over 1,000 respected individuals, while keeping careful controls on spending and service quality.

An expert on wireless technology, standards, and operations, Mr. Hariton has negotiated and overseen the efficient deployment of over $600 million in infrastructure hardware and services, often breaking ground with new network concepts, such as the first dual band GSM network globally.

After Millicom, Joel was a senior advisor to CG SAT, now Vivendi International, in Paris, and Vice President of Wireless Services for CH2MHill in London. He was also CTO of Reliance WiMAX World and Afrimax, implementing and operating 4G services throughout sub-Sahara Africa.

About Spectrum Effect
Spectrum Effect’s revolutionary solution, Spectrum-NET, helps operators make the most of their valuable spectrum assets by rapidly identifying, locating and mitigating sources of RF interference and optimizing networks for future sharing opportunities.

Spectrum Effect has developed the key technology building blocks needed to rapidly maximize and monetize limited spectrum resources on today’s networks.
Spectrum Effect Product Solutions, Identify & Mitigate External Interference
As data demand steadily escalates, Spectrum-NET provides operators with the deep network visibility needed to protect their sizable investment in licensed spectrum and ensure ongoing service quality.
Spectrum Effect’s breakthrough, Spectrum-NET, addresses this dilemma by enabling mobile operators of shared spectrum networks to rapidly identify, characterize, and locate sources of external interference during normal network operation with no downtime.
Spectrum Effect’s Spectrum-NET solution has the advanced technology needed to provide a clear picture of complex, overcrowded 5G networks.
Spectrum Analytics at Mobile World Congress
As spectrum sharing solutions such as LTE-U, CBRS, and LSA are deployed, the external interference will dramatically increase by design making Spectrum-NET’s external interference management capabilities an even more critical asset for operators.
