Mr. Gell has extensive experience in the mobile wireless and IoT industries, having held executive positions at Hewlett-Packard, Solectek, Nestwave, VIE Technologies and Cygnus Broadband, where he was co-founder.
Totum has developed a revolutionary, satellite-based IoT connectivity and positioning system which enables low-power asset tracking and monitoring.

In addition, the Totum link supports indoor operation – critical to unlocking the full value of tracking objects across their journey."
"We're truly excited to have Dave on the team," said Ted Myers, Founder and CEO of Totum Labs. "Our goal was to bring the voice of the customer front and center into our product and service offerings, so we were looking for a proven leader with both deep commercial and deep technical roots. Dave's experience and insights in the wireless and IoT space brings this and so much more to the table. We already feel his impact."
