Ekinops, a leading provider of optical transport and WDM solutions, has named telecommunications and IT industry veteran Rob Adams Vice President of Global Marketing and Product Line Management. Creating this new position in the company underscores Ekinops’ commitment to strengthening its product management and its ability to communicate the strengths of its product portfolio to customers and the marketplace.

Adams brings more than 20 years of senior level product management experience in the IT and telecommunications industries. After earning a masters degree in computer engineering at the University of North Carolina, Adams worked with companies such as IBM, Cisco, and Ciena.
