Chief Executive Officer
John DuBois has been in the Telecommunications field for over 20 years. Recently, he was CEO of a NASDAQ listed Telecommunications equipment company and CEO of a national backbone internet provider. Mr. DuBois was also instrumental in the widespread deployment of DSL technology in the late 1990s serving as a Vice President of carrier sales for Redback Networks working with Bell Atlantic (now Verizon), Bell South and SBC (now AT&T). Prior to that, Mr. DuBois spent almost his entire career working in software/systems engineering, sales, and executive management for companies that were either telecommunications service providers or equipment manufacturers. These companies include, Ascend, Cascade, ECI Telecom (formerly Telematics International), GTE (now part of Verizon), Netrail, Nx Networks, Sprint/Sprint International.
Mr. DuBois is a pioneer in the field of network-based storage of video surveillance feeds. In 1999 he provided seed capital for the first U.S. based company to start a public “service provider” business for off-site storage and retrieval of surveillance video. That company was subsequently funded with $40 million in venture capital. The company’s success was dependant on the deployment of DSL and other broadband Internet services. These new services were delayed for a variety of reasons and the company was shut down in mid-2001.
Mr. DuBois also worked for a major U.S. Defense contractor in the late 1980s and was granted a TS clearance which expired in 1992. He also worked for the U.S. Dept of Labor in the early 1980s.
Mr. DuBois has a BS in Business Administration from American University and received an MS in Technology of Management also from American University with a 3.90 GPA.
