World-class team from Tahoe Networks joins Nokia Networks’ core networks business


Dr. Arthur Lin, a recognized visionary in the IP networking industry together with his team from Tahoe Networks, joins Nokia (NYSE:  NOK) Networks’ Core Networks business to contribute to Nokia’s Intelligent Edge strategy and to add to the company’s strong IP competencies.


“We are very pleased to have Dr. Arthur Lin and his team join us in implementing our vision for future mobile packet core networks,” says Petri Lyytikäinen, General Manager, Mobile Packet Core, Nokia Networks. “The talent and vision of this team further strengthens our Intelligent Edge programs, adding to our IP networking and IP services competencies.”


The role of the mobile packet core network is increasing in importance, as more and more new mobile data services are introduced to consumers. Within the mobile core network, the Nokia Intelligent Edge forms the business machinery for offering IP based services for mobile users. Advanced IP services are creating new communication choices for consumers and becoming a leading revenue driver for mobile carriers.


Nokia continues to base its Intelligent Edge strategy on Nokia technology platforms. Nokia launched the first solutions for Nokia Intelligent Edge, the Nokia IP Multimedia Core and Nokia Intelligent Content Delivery Solutions earlier this year, and has already won eight deals for the Nokia Intelligent Content Delivery solution. The first customers are already using the solution commercially.


“We are very excited about joining Nokia, the world class leader of mobile communications products,” says Dr. Arthur Lin, President and CTO, Tahoe Networks. “Nokia has a strong technology platform in IP mobility networks and a compelling vision for bringing new kinds of IP based services to mobile networks.”


Dr. Arthur Lin brings to Nokia over 18 years of experience in developing breakthrough products for the networking industry. He was the co-founder, CTO and VP of Engineering for Shasta Networks and later, the Executive VP of Engineering and Operations for Nortel’s IP services business unit. He is a leading authority on technologies and holds several patents in areas such as very high speed packet switching systems, gigabit router architectures, high performance multicast algorithms, traffic management, QoS control schemes, captive portal services and high-performance, high-touch packet processing.
