Marcello Salerno has more than forty years experience in telecommunications. Starting in 70’s at Central Research Labs of GTE, he was involved in first digital radio studies and prototyping, specifically in the digital modem and baseband processing area. In early 80’s, he gave a significant contribution to the first “QAM Radio” design, planning and product realization for long haul applications, as responsible for the modem department at Siemens Telecomunicazioni. Marcello was then responsible for the System Architecture and Product Generation, leading the PDH, SDH and ATM evolution of the P-P and P-MP Siemens Radio products. He was Vice President R&D at Siemens Microwave Radio from 1998, when Microwave Backhauling rapidly increased his role in mobile networks, and Head of Microwave R&D at Nokia Siemens Networks till end of 2008. Marcello spent the last four years as a consultant at Linkra Networks, contributing to the R&D team for the full IP backhaul product evolution and, more in general, in the field of innovation. He also represented this company, as in the past he did for Siemens Telecomunicazioni, in the international Radio Standard Bodies (CEPT, ETSI). By September 2013, Marcello joined GreenWaves as a co-founder, promoting a new activity still focused on the telecommunications field.
