Curve IT appoints new Head of Fibre Infrastructure Development

"Full fibre infrastructure is an essential utility to communities across the UK, and once in place it brings a wide range of productivity, leisure and digital inclusivity benefits."
Matt Ryan

Curve IT, the built environment technology specialist, has appointed network specialist Matt Ryan to lead their full fibre infrastructure team.

Matt Ryan joins from Wessex Internet, where he was technical director, in a new role at Curve as Head of Fibre Infrastructure Development.

With nearly 20 years’ experience working in network infrastructure and architecture, Matt will be responsible for working on large scale projects associated with the planning and delivery of superfast broadband to communities in the South East and elsewhere in the UK. This includes working with local authorities and major private sector construction partners.

Matt’s role will centre around Curve IT’s ‘dig once’ approach, which aims to minimise disruption to communities and reduce costs for local authorities and private contractors by co-ordinating the installation of full fibre cables and ducts with other major construction work.

Matt has held a number of senior positions in his career in addition to his previous role as Technical Director at Wessex Internet. He served as Technical Director at Metranet Communications Ltd, where he oversaw the introduction of the UK’s first hybrid wireless and fibre gigabit service provider network in Brighton, which was funded by the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS)’s Connection Voucher Scheme.

He also worked at Technical Director at Moovera Networks Ltd, where he led one of the UK’s first installations of WiFi on public transport by providing connectivity on the Stagecoach run ‘Oxford Tube’ bus service connecting Oxford to London.

Commenting on his appointment Matt Ryan said, ‘‘Full fibre infrastructure is an essential utility to communities across the UK, and once in place it brings a wide range of productivity, leisure and digital inclusivity benefits.

“However, getting fibre infrastructure in the ground requires a carefully coordinated approach.

“With many local authorities and contractors looking beyond Openreach when it comes to delivering their own connectivity projects, I’m looking forward to championing Curve’s expertise as a full fibre planning and delivery partner.”

Simon O’Hare, Managing Director of Curve IT, said ‘‘It’s great to have someone with the experience that Matt brings onboard.

“He will be pivotal to the expansion of our fibre infrastructure team.’’
