After more than 15 years within the Intraplex business unit at GatesAir, its Director and VP/GM is being promoted to a top engineering role for the entire radio and TV transmitter manufacturer.
Taking the role of VP/Engineering is Keyur Parikh, who now reports directly to CEO Bruce D. Swail. The increased responsibilities will see him oversee GatesAir’s engineering team management and system software development, across all product lines.
Parikh assumes the role from Tony Kobrinetz, who will retire following a career that includes 35 years with Motorola.
With Parikh’s promotion, Ted Lantz will now serve as VP/GM, Radio and for Intraplex Product Groups.
Parikh is the chief architect of GatesAir’s Intraplex IP networking products, and led a global development team. His innovations include Intraplex NetXpress, a IP audio and data multiplexer; the IP Link family of codecs, GatesAir’s flagship product line for the Intraplex business today; and Intraplex Ascent, GatesAir’s first cloud-based transport platform introduced last year. He also holds several patents for media transport and synchronization over wide-area IP networks.
“Keyur performed an excellent job managing a fully integrated Intraplex business unit while maintaining the brand’s industry leadership position,” Swail said. “His extensive background in software development and systems engineering is consistent with GatesAir’s continued product evolution from hardware to software-oriented platforms. We congratulate Keyur on his new position and responsibilities, and are confident that his expertise will continue to diversify and expand GatesAir’s product portfolio for years to come.”
