Shatzkamer joins Brocade as Distinguished Engineer and CTO Mobile Networking

Brocade said it has hired mobile, cloud, and digital media technology expert, Kevin Shatzkamer, as Distinguished Engineer and CTO Mobile Networking.

In this role, Shatzkamer will collaborate with customer CTOs to develop new operational models to quickly realize revenue-generating services through the use of emerging technologies, such as Software-Defined Networking (SDN) and Network Functions Virtualization (NFV).

Mobile operator networks are currently undergoing a radical evolution—increasingly referred to as the New IP—in which they will adopt open, software-driven solutions to improve service delivery and modernize business models. Specializing in mobile architecture design, Shatzkamer has spent the past 15 years analyzing the impact of cloud, mobile, and digital media on the networks of service providers. In taking an ecosystem-wide, experience-centric approach to working with customers, he has become a leading expert in the development of long-term strategies optimized for telecommunications companies.

“As Brocade continues to focus on the needs of mobile carriers, Kevin’s advanced understanding of the mobile, cloud, and digital media trends impacting their networks will prove to be an invaluable resource for our customers,” said Ken Cheng, CTO and VP, Corporate Development at Brocade.

“Brocade is aggressively seeking to disrupt the networking industry in order to better serve its customers, and it has assembled a high-caliber team to do just that,” Shatzkamer said. “The company has developed and acquired strategic assets, such as Vyatta and Vistapointe, that will be critical in the physical to virtual transition customers are seeking. It is my job to take these tools and help customers build out the networks of tomorrow to support the ever-increasing mobile and cloud workloads.”
