(10 August 2018 - XipLink) XipLink, the technology leader in Wireless Link Optimization is proud to announce that Edson Meira of Sao Paulo Brazil has joined the XipLink team as the lead executive in Latin America.

The Latin America market has been growing rapidly for XipLink with large wins during the last year in Mexico, Brazil, Bolivia, Ecuador, Chile and several other countries. While most of these customers have purchased XipLink products for optimizing their cellular backhaul networks, there are also significant installations in Education and Military networks throughout the region.

Most recently, Edson worked for Telesat, running the Latin America region for many years dating back to Loral Skynet, which later merged with Telesat, in 2007. He also has significant background selling IP network solutions at Equant, NCR and AT&T in the past. Mr. Meira has business relationships at most network operators as well as telco's in the region and will be working alongside the excellent technical team of Jorge Alvarado and Rolando Lozano.

Jack Waters, CEO at XipLink notes, "We have known Edson for many years and enjoyed working alongside him on various satellite networking projects. Now that he is moving from the space capacity side to the network optimization business, XipLink is very fortunate to obtain his sales leadership at exactly the right time".

Edson is a member of the SSPI, Chapter Brazil, and will be available to meet at the upcoming Congresso Latino Americano de Satélites show in Rio de Janeiro.
