Rethink Team

Peter White

CEO and Co-Founder, Rethink Technology Research

Peter White has been involved in technology since 1978 and is now the CEO of Rethink Technology Research and helped create the company in 2002.

Peter focuses his research on video and all the technologies which allow it to traverse digital networks. He has consulted with set top and home gateway manufacturers, encoder specialists, chip vendors, flash memory providers, security companies and TV UI specialists over the past 15 years.  His coverage area takes in recommendation systems, VoD servers, OTT enablers, content metadata, natural language search, LCD and OLED panels, WiFi and underlying broadband technologies such as DOCSIS, ADSL, G.Fast, G.hn and fiber. So it goes from chips and hardware, through to software and the cloud, and it is everything that relates to video, from glass (the camera) to glass (the screen).

Peter is the principal analyst on Faultline, a digital media research service offered by Rethink Technology Research. He also works with Thomas Flanagan on its research arm Rethink TV.

Caroline Gabriel

Research Director & Co-Founder, Rethink Technology Research

Caroline Gabriel

Caroline left the Dutch publishing and research conglomerate VNU, at the top of the organization, as European Editorial Director in 2002, to help create Rethink Technology Research.

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, LightSquared, Vodafone, Amdocs, the Small Cell Forum, the Wireless Broadband Alliance, Ofcom as well as start-ups like SpiderCloud, Deltenna and BLiNQ Networks.

She 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 has spoken and chaired many conferences and is a well- known and respected figure within the LTE and 5G community.

She operates as the company’s Research Director and is expert in all forms of Wireless communication and has edited our research service Wireless Watch, since its inception in 2002 and leads our RAN Research forecasts and also finds time to conduct consulting assignments for a wide variety of wireless businesses.

If you want to email Caroline, ask her a question or invite her to attend or speak at an event, then please email her at [email protected] and we will forward it to her.
