TD Madison Leads Successful Executive Search for CableLabs' New Vice President of Wireless

VIRGINIA BEACH, Va., April 1, 2020 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- TD Madison, a trusted provider of executive recruitment services to the cable and broadband industry, is pleased to congratulate Rakesh Taori on his new role as the Vice President of Wireless at CableLabs®. TD Madison undertook an exhaustive executive search and recruitment program, identifying Taori as the strongest candidate in a competitive field.

Rakesh Taori is a 5G pioneer who has passionately led 5G efforts for over a decade. His involvement with 5G started with the identification of spectrum for 5G to the regulators (2010), before leading the 5G system design team and driving early feasibility studies and ecosystem efforts at Samsung. Taori helped cofound a 5G startup company called Phazr, which spearheaded some of the first 5G trials (2017) and pilot deployments (2018) with Tier-1 operators in the EU and carried out exhaustive indoor 5G propagation studies with Japanese Tier-1 operators. Taori is an expert in cellular system design and Mobile and Wi-Fi networking standards.

Taori will be responsible for driving and executing CableLabs' wireless and mobile area vision and strategy. He will report to Mariam Sorond, CableLabs' Chief Research and Development Officer, whose recruitment TD Madison also managed.

"We are pleased to have once again successfully placed a senior executive at CableLabs, the most innovative and influential research and development lab in the cable and broadband industry. It was a pleasure to work with the CableLabs team, and we're thrilled to congratulate Rakesh as he takes up a position that will have an enormous impact on the future of 5G, wireless, and mobile networking," said Dean Madison, CEO of TD Madison.

Before joining CableLabs, Rakesh was the first JMA Fellow of 5G Technologies at JMA Wireless, which acquired Phazr, a 5G startup at which Rakesh was Vice President of Systems and Standards and a founding employee. While at Phazr, Taori led the system design team that helped to architect and build the company's innovative 5G base station. Before Phazr, Taori held positions at Samsung, Ericsson, and Phillips, as well as serving on the Wi-Fi Alliance board and as Vice Chairman of the IEEE 802.16 working group. Rakesh is a prolific inventor with over 150 granted US patents.

"With vast amounts of unlicensed, shared spectrum for local/private 5G becoming available, cable operators offering wired and wireless services have an unprecedented opportunity to build a truly converged network of the future. CableLabs is in a unique position to architect, define and drive the network convergence paradigm. I'm looking forward to working with the world-class researchers and engineers at CableLabs, helping the cable and broadband industry to innovate the next generation of wired and wireless networks," said Rakesh Taori.
