PISCATAWAY, N.J., Oct. 14 /PRNewswire/ -- Communications service providers (CSPs) must cope with an increasingly complex mix of technology evolution, business-process transformation, competitive pressures, customer-experience management, real-time services, enterprise IT and regulatory compliance. Having a trusted ally with deep industry experience and market awareness of the latest technologies to help them evaluate their challenges, recognize and game-plan for revenue-generating opportunities, and develop solutions that "get it right" from the beginning reflects Telcordia's core strength of delivering value to its customers.

To capitalize on this core strength, Telcordia announced that Adan K. Pope will expand his responsibilities as Chief Strategy Officer to include a new Chief Technology Officer role. In this position, he will contribute to the overall corporate strategy and goal-setting, cross-solution synergies for the company's portfolio of products and services and strategic partnerships around the world.

Philosophically, Pope aims to change the conversation with the company's customers to leverage their assets and core competencies to generate profitable new revenue streams.

"Our customers are tired of hearing about becoming 'dumb pipes' and being left out of the value chain," said Pope. "We are actively working with them to identify business opportunities, solve communications problems as they arise -- no matter how complex, and better enable them to realize their full potential."

A 20-plus-year industry veteran, Pope's background includes technical strategy and leadership at the forefront of industry innovation, beginning with AT&T Bell Labs in the 1980s. In previous C-level positions, Pope provided technical leadership on strategic accounts, was responsible for entry into new markets and has earned several technology patents.

Pope joined Telcordia in 2008, and in addition to Chief Strategy Officer, served as Chief Technology Officer for Operations Solutions and Service Delivery Solutions.
