The company has the platform in place and the expertise to empower CSPs to more meaningfully engage with subscribers and to convert that engagement into growth opportunities for the CSP and their consumer and business subscribers."
At Juniper Networks, Mr. Kapoor was most recently responsible for business strategy, portfolio expansion / management and execution planning for its $1B software business. That role was preceded by his position as business owner and key strategist of Juniper’s network automation and analytics business. Mr. Kapoor has more than 20 years’ experience in the networking and software industry, having held senior management roles with Cisco, Sony and Qualcomm prior to Juniper. He is a frequent speaker on customer engagement and marketing analytics at conferences worldwide.
