CAMPBELL, Calif. -- Exalt Communications today announced that industry veteran John Grabner has joined Exalt as vice president of engineering. Grabner, who has over 25 years of telecommunications industry experience within both the service provider and enterprise markets, is responsible for overseeing worldwide development of Exalt's wireless backhaul systems.

Prior to joining Exalt, Grabner was director of engineering for Cisco's wireless business unit, a position he accepted following the company's acquisition of Navini Networks, where Grabner served as vice president of engineering. Grabner was a key executive contributor to Navini's success, growing it as a startup to become one of the leading wireless broadband companies of its time, and prompting Cisco to ultimately acquire Navini in 2007. Before Navini, Grabner spent 17 years with Nortel Networks, where he held a number of technical and engineering management positions. Grabner holds 19 patents, as well as a Bachelor of Engineering with distinction in computer systems engineering from Carleton University.

"Despite the challenging economy of the past several years, our innovative technology platform has enabled us to grow our market share faster than our competitors," said Amir Zoufonoun, CEO and founder of Exalt Communications. "John's demonstrated leadership in driving the development and management of next-generation wireless technologies, combined with his deep roots in the telecommunications industry, will be invaluable to Exalt as we continue to drive innovation throughout our portfolio to capitalize on high-growth market opportunities."

A CSP's digital transformation involves so much more than technology. Crucial – and often most challenging – is the cultural transformation that goes along with it. As Sigma's Chief Technology Officer, Catherine Michel has extensive experience with technology as she leads the company's entire product portfolio and strategy. But she's also no stranger to merging technology and culture, having taken a company — Tribold — from inception to acquisition (by Sigma in 2013), and she continues to advise service providers on how to drive their own transformations. This impressive female leader and vocal advocate for other women in the industry will join Women in Comms for a live radio show to discuss all things digital transformation, including the cultural transformation that goes along with it.
