CableLabs has appointed Rakesh Taori as its vice president of Wireless. He will report to Chief Research and Development Officer Mariam Sorond. In his new role, Taori will drive CableLabs' efforts in the wireless and mobile area.

"We are delighted to welcome Rakesh to CableLabs. His in-depth knowledge and vast experience in the wireless area will bring tremendous benefits to our members and the industry as a whole," said Sorond. "Rakesh brings a broad perspective across many technologies and platforms. As the industry embraces the principles of open standards, virtualization, and open interfaces, Rakesh's creative thinking will propel innovations at CableLabs towards disruptive networks."

Taori brings a decade of pioneering work in 5G, coupled with first-hand experience in initial deployments.

"I am thrilled to join CableLabs, and I look forward to working with a team of world-class distinguished technologists and research engineers," said Taori. "Delivering ultra-high-speed ubiquitous broadband services to consumers securely, and monitoring, administering and operating billions of machines and objects in public and private networks will require unprecedented levels of innovations in wired and wireless technologies. CableLabs provides the ideal platform for inventing unified architectures that incorporate native support for coexistence and seamless delivery and helps the industry build and deliver innovative and efficient systems to serve these next-generation needs."
