Muhumbulo Mmbwenga
General Manager, Digital Radio at TransNet Freight Rail


I have been working in the mission critical communication industry for 10 Years. The areas of expertise include the deployment of Mission critical wireless communication networks in railways. I have been involved in the planning and deployment of mission critical projects in Eswatini, Zimbabwe, Mozambique and South African Railways. I am currently involved in a project of upgrading the Transnet analogue network into a digital broadband network for mission critical communication. This project will also include the interoperability of Telecommunication networks in the SADC region.
