XipLink, the technology leader in Wireless Link Optimization is proud to announce that Sasmith Reddi has re-joined the XipLink team as Senior Vice President of Marketing.

At FORE Systems, a leader in ATM technology during the initial Internet boom, he is credited with designing the highest capacity IP networks at the time for large accounts like UUNET, internetMCI, America OnLine and several other backbone providers. Sasmith was also a key figure in the restart of iDirect in 2002 by hiring an outstanding team of field Systems Engineers while providing the initial product strategy, launching the company from a $2M revenue restart to over $100M five years later. He and other members of the iDirect team were credited with the Virtual Network Operator (VNO) terminology and strategy that has become an industry standard term today. In 2008, Sasmith joined XipLink to help launch the company, performing many functions and ultimately running the Asia region. Most recently, Sasmith has been Director of Systems Engineering in iDirect’s Asia region which has consistently performed at the highest levels within the company.
