Riedel Communications, provider of pioneering real-time video, audio, data, and communications networks, has announced that Erik Miehs has joined the company as service engineer for Australia. In his new role, Miehs will boost Riedel's ability to support existing customers and equipment rentals while contributing to the company's continued overall growth in sales and rentals across the region.
