Aperto names Deutsch prez, CEO
Aperto Networks, which provides carrier-grade WiMAX base stations and subscriber units, announced today that Brian Deutsch has been named as the company’s new president and CEO.
Most recently, Deutsch was vice president of wireless services at BSquare Corp. Prior to BSquare, Deutsch was co-founder and CEO of Wavtrace, a broadband millimeter-wave, point-to-multipoint wireless equipment manufacturer.
Prior to Wavtrace, Deutsch was CEO of American Public Communications, a designer and manufacturer of public telephony products and services for the Regional Bell Operating Companies (RBOCs). As CEO, he led the company out of bankruptcy and grew sales year-over-year until it was purchased in a private sale, Aperto said.
Aperto’s PacketMAX family of products extends wireless broadband services to a wide range of users – from governments, large enterprises and public-sector organizations to multi-tenet buildings and residences – using a single, standards-based platform. PacketMAX also supports the widest range of licensed and licensed-exempt frequencies in the world, including the 2.5 GHz, 3.5 GHz and 5 GHz bands, according to the company.
