Almere, September 12, 2007 - Hopling Technologies, a rapidly growing leader in IP-based wireless networking equipment for enterprises, operators and service providers, is pleased to announce that it has appointed former General Manager of Global Crossing France Gérard Dupin as Director of Wireless Solutions.

Gérard Dupin, a French native, joins Hopling Technologies from Global Crossing France, where he was General Manager for over four years. At Global Crossing he was in charge of setting up the country organization and the roll out of a nationwide state-of-the-art fiber network.

“I am very pleased that Gérard joins the expanding Hopling Technologies sales team,” said Peter Calis, Chief Operating Officer of Hopling Technologies. “His broad experience in the French Telecom market will be essential for our vertical market approach and success in Europe, and France in particular.”

Graduated from Ecole Nationale Supérieure des Télécommunications (ENST), Gérard has more than 30 years of experience in the telecommunication field. He has held various senior executive positions within France Telecom (FT), where he was responsible for the design of the FT synchronization network and related quality issues within the domestic and international networks.

Gérard has also been involved for almost ten years in the engineering, design and implementation of the various FT submarine projects (Channel, Mediterranean Sea, Atlantic & Pacific Oceans).
