"We are excited to have Howard on board. His twenty years of extensive
experience in the North American market will strengthen Tecore's market
leadership in scalable wireless solutions for operators throughout the
U.S. and support our continued mission of leveling the playing field for
rural communities," said Jay Salkini, President and CEO of Tecore
As wireless technology accelerates forward, rural operators are
challenged to evolve their current network infrastructures to next
generation 3G and 4G LTE technology. Additionally, operators who
initially moved to 4G LTE through hosting are looking for alternatives
to deploy their own core infrastructure and regain control of their
subscriber base as Voice-Over-LTE becomes a reality. Tecore stands ready
with a full portfolio of next generation capability including
industry-leading scalability as well as key features such as integrated
IP Multimedia Subsystem (IMS) support.
