Command Information Launches Communications Provider Business Unit
Command Information, the premier provider of next generation network services, today announced the formation of its Communications Provider business unit to meet the growing needs of the carrier, cable, and Internet Service Provider community. Additionally, the company announced that it has hired Doug Dangremond as Vice President, Sales and Business Development, to lead the new business.
"The communications marketplace is evolving rapidly and providers face many challenges in delivering next generation Internet services, including video on demand, Internet Protocol Television (IPTV), and always-on mobility," said Jerry Edgerton, CEO of Command Information. "Internet Protocol version 6 (IPv6) and associated next generation infrastructures are key to enabling these services. Our expertise in IPv6, security, and application development make us the perfect partner to support their efforts from a networking perspective. Doug's expertise in this space makes him the clear choice to lead the development of our business in this exciting customer segment."
Command Information provides IPv6 and next generation Internet consulting services offering network assessments; information technology (IT) planning and migration; training; application development; security; as well as on-going operational support. Focused on addressing the toughest operational challenges -- while at the same time lowering costs and maximizing IT investment -- the new business unit will assist customers in migrating their network architectures and aligning new capabilities with network investments.
Prior to joining Command Information, Dangremond was Vice President, Public Sector for NeuStar, Inc., a provider of clearinghouse and directory services to the global communications and Internet industry. Before joining NeuStar, Dangremond spent a number of years with AT&T and its former subsidiaries, SBC Communications and Ameritech. From 2001-2006, Dangremond was Vice President, Federal Solutions, responsible for sales and business development efforts as well as strategic planning and marketing.
"Communication providers face many complex issues regarding IP communications including the migration to IPv6," said Dangremond. "Command Information has extensive experience in helping companies plan for this adoption. I am truly excited about the possibilities that lie ahead and to be joining such a well-respected organization. Communication providers will deliver the next generation Internet and my goal is to support their efforts, as well as accelerate Command Information's growth into this new market."
