SAN JOSE, Calif. -- Veraz Networks, a leading global provider of next-generation VoIP solutions, announced that it has appointed Carlos Linares as its Vice President of the Caribbean and Latin America region (CALA). As a highly experienced telecommunications executive in Latin America, Mr. Linares will enable Veraz to extend its leadership in providing advanced IP solutions for next generation services to this region.

Mr. Linares has an extensive executive and sales management background; he has spent nearly 20 years at top tier telecommunications organizations in both Latin America and the United States. Before Veraz, Carlos was the Corporate Officer and President of Inter-Networking Solutions where he was responsible for all of Lucent’s Caribbean and Latin American operations including 8,000 employees. He also served at Lucent as the Vice President of Sales for the CALA region where he grew their revenue from $150 million to over $1 billion in a three year period. Prior to Lucent, Mr. Linares worked at various roles in sales management, human resources, and quality management at AT&T for 13 years.

“We will increasingly become a significant force in the march towards global adoption of VOIP, and the addition of Carlos is validation that our vision and product lines are uniquely positioned to lead this evolution,” said Doug Sabella, President and CEO of Veraz Networks. “Veraz views Latin America as a strategic market and the addition of Carlos as VP of CALA will further our efforts in this region.”

“I am excited about joining a leader in next-generation VoIP networks that sees the strategic value and importance of the Latin American region,” said Carlos Linares, VP of CALA at Veraz Networks. “Veraz is poised to become a leading player in the Latin American market because the flexibility of the Veraz platform enables service providers to offer new services rapidly and at lower costs.”
