Exalt Adds VP Engineering
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.
