Caroline Gabriel helped create Rethink Technology Research. To do so, in 2002 she left the Dutch publishing and research conglomerate VNU, at the top of the organization, as European Editorial Director.
She has been explaining technology to people for almost 30 years and has conducted research assignments for most of the major businesses in the sector including The European Commission, Intel, Vodafone, Amdocs, the Small Cell Forum, the Wireless Broadband Alliance, Ofcom as well as start-ups like SpiderCloud, Deltenna and BLiNQ Networks.
Caroline Gabriel has also partnered with other analyst groups in joint projects including RealWireless, the Yankee Group, Maravedis and ArcChart.
The irony is that while Caroline works in a subject very much of the future, she studied History at Oxford University, although she always makes it clear that history has a habit of repeating itself, even within technology.
Caroline Gabriel has spoken and chaired many conferences and is a well- known and respected figure within the LTE and 5G community.
