YEARS OF RESEARCH AND EXPERIENCE BEHIND ECHORING

Back in 2007, a decade ago, Professor James Gross, nowadays professor at KTH-Royal Institute of Technology (Stockholm), had the vision that it would come a day when there would be a need for reliable wireless communications with low-latency profiles. After some years evaluating the best approach to solve this challenge, James came up with the idea of a pure software wireless protocol and persuaded Christian Dombrowski to do his Ph.D. about this topic at RWTH Aachen. The result, if you are reading this, is obvious: EchoRing.

Due to EchoRing’s exceptionally high potential especially for industrial related applications, in 2015 James decided to contact Dr. Mathias Bohge, management consultant at that time and former classmate of James at TU Berlin, to explore the possibility to spin off the technology into a startup. At the same time, Mathias introduced also management consultant Florian Bonanati to James and Christian, and after some months of market research, they decided to found R3 Communications around EchoRing.

Today James, Christian, Mathias, and Florian form a remarkably prepared founder team that is pushing EchoRing to skyrocket the ultra-available and time critical wireless communication market.

Founders

FLORIAN BONANATI

Managing Director

After graduating in business administration, Florian started a successful career at two leading management consulting firms. With his strong business background and special interest in Germany’s market and innovation, Florian plays an essential role in EchoRing’s business development opportunities.

DR. MATHIAS BOHGE

MANAGING DIRECTOR

Ph.D. in engineering, Mathias also took the path of management consulting after university. There he developed his passion for marketing and human resources, a passion that he expresses every day at the office to build the right image of EchoRing in the best working environment.

CHRISTIAN DOMBROWSKI

HEAD OF DEVELOPMENT

As the main developer of EchoRing, Christian is leading the core software development team to keep delivering a technology with the finest performance. His deep knowledge of the technology, and every detail that surrounds it makes him the perfect agent in the decision making of EchoRing’s development.

PROF. JAMES GROSS

HEAD OF RESEARCH

EchoRing’s ideologist and visionary of its great potential, James is now the head of research at R3 Communications GmbH as well as a professor of machine-to-machine communication at KTH. With his experience in the wireless communication sector, James is continuously contributing to the redesign and evolution of EchoRing.
