GatesAir has promoted Keyur Parikh to Vice President of Engineering, effective immediately. He reports to GatesAir CEO Bruce D. Swail, with increased responsibilities across engineering team management and system software development for all product lines.

Parikh transitions to Vice President of Engineering following more than 15 years with GatesAir's Intraplex business unit, ending with a successful three-year run as Director and Vice President/General Manager, Intraplex Product Group. He assumes the role from Tony Kobrinetz, who will retire following an exceptional career that includes 35 years with telecommunications leader Motorola. Ted Lantz will assume Parikh's previous role, and serve as Vice President and General Manager, Radio and Intraplex Product Groups, effective immediately.

Parikh is the chief architect of GatesAir's Intraplex IP networking products, and led a global development team that introduced several award-winning products. His innovations include Intraplex NetXpress, which broke ground in 2005 as the industry's first 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, and was a recipient of Radio World's Industry Innovator Award in 2017.

"Keyur performed an excellent job managing a fully integrated Intraplex business unit while maintaining the brand's industry leadership position," said Swail. "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."
