xMatters bolsters regional management team


Cloud business process vendor xMatters has made three appointments to its Sydney-based regional management team.

“These new hires are an important part of our continued growth strategy and are a tangible sign of the company’s commitment to the region," said APJ vice president David Wall.

"As our presence has grown, so too has our need to invest in the local team. We are delighted to have Ty [Flippin], Louise [Smith] and Simeon [Lobo] on-board to help drive our continued growth in the second half of 2015.”

Ty Flippin (pictured above) has been appointed area vice president for Australia and New Zealand, relocating from xMatters' US operation where he was most recently area vice president of global service providers.

Louise Smith is the new client success manager for APJ, a role previously performed at xMatters' California headquarters.

She previously worked as a senior analyst in business resilience and security for the Royal Bank of Scotland in London, where she managed a major xMatters implementation.

Simeon Lobo joins xMatters as business development manager for the telco operator channel.

He has more than 15 years’ experience in the ICT industry, most recently as strategic development manager at Optus as strategic development manager.

Lobo graduated from the University of Technology Sydney with a bachelor's degree in telecommunications engineering.

Initial challenges are associated with supporting such project and upgrades to fulfil the promise of higher-capacity transport.

The foundation of optical networking infrastructure includes coherent optical transceivers and digital signal processing (DSP), mux/demux, ROADM, and optical amplifiers, all of which must be able to support 400G capacity.

With today’s proprietary power-hungry and high cost transceivers and DSP, how is migration to 400G networks going to be a viable option?

PacketLight's next-generation standardised solutions may be the answer. Click below to read the full article.
