Nick Booth, freelance telecoms and IoT writer

Nick Booth spent many years in IT departments, striving to translate tech jargon into the lingua franca of hospitals, banks and London’s Metropolitan Police traffic division. This skill has since been applied to explain technology to readerships ranging from The News of the World to Network Reseller, taking in every level of technical enthusiasm and understanding in between.

He has helped telcos to explain their strategy to their dealers, helped global software vendors to explain to their channel partners that ‘It Takes Two To Tango’ and helped UK regulator, OFCOM to gain popular acceptance for new regulations. A veteran of the early days of mobile data, he provided comms support to deeply suspicious SIM card connected Traffic cops. As a result, he is particularly sympathetic to the challenges faced by Transport IoT installers.
