At Multiple Access Communications Limited (MAC Ltd) we have been providing world class products and design services to the global mobile communications industry for over 30 years. We have built an outstanding reputation within the industry, which is a testament to the high quality and professionalism of our engineering team.

MAC Ltd was founded in 1986 by Professor Raymond Steele, one of the Founding Fathers of modern-day mobile communications, to tackle the engineering challenges of taking mobile communications from an expensive and luxury item, which was only accessible to business executives and professional users, to the smart phones that we see today that are accessible to everyone. He achieved this by handpicking, training and mentoring exceptional electronic engineers to build a world class team that were able to take on and solve the most difficult engineering problems. The current owners and senior leadership of MAC Ltd were part of this early team and we continue Professor Steele’s successful approach today.

Everything we do at MAC Ltd is focused on the radio interface between wireless devices. This has included developing improved modulation and radio access schemes, improving the ability of devices to cope with increasing interference, developing radio spectrum sharing approaches and providing products to test and validate radio communication systems. We have worked on every generation of mobile phone technology, from the early analogue devices to today’s 5G smart phones. We have also worked across many sectors including telecommunications, public safety, defence and security.
