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."

Understanding the full experience of women in technology requires starting at the collegiate level (or sooner) and studying the technologies women are involved with, company cultures they're part of and personal experiences of individuals.

During this WiC radio show, we will talk with Nicole Engelbert, the director of Research & Analysis for Ovum Technology and a 23-year telecom industry veteran, about her experiences and perspectives on women in tech. Engelbert covers infrastructure, applications and industries for Ovum, but she is also involved in the research firm's higher education team and has helped colleges and universities globally leverage technology as a strategy for improving recruitment, retention and graduation performance.

She will share her unique insight into the collegiate level, where women pursuing engineering and STEM-related degrees is dwindling. Engelbert will also reveal new, original Ovum research on the topics of artificial intelligence, the Internet of Things, security and augmented reality, as well as discuss what each of those technologies might mean for women in our field. As always, we'll also leave plenty of time to answer all your questions live on the air and chat board.
