FORA.tv Speaker - Pradheep Sindhu
Pradeep Sindhu founded Juniper Networks in 1996 to focus on what he saw as the enormous potential of networked computing. An alumnus of the Computer Science Lab at Xerox PARC, he brought to the new venture a commitment to ambitious R&D. Rather than start small, Jupiter took aim at the biggest problem then facing the industry -- the need for a new, scalable router architecture to support the explosive growth of the Internet. While running the company, Sindhu helped design and develop its debut product, the M40 router, which provided data speeds more than 100 times faster than existing technologies.
Today Jupiter Networks employs more than 8,700 people in 53 countries and has expanded its product line to cover the gamut of networking hardware and management solutions. Its customers include the 130 largest global service providers and 96 of the Global Fortune 100. Sindhu sets the company's technical roadmap and continues to play an active role in its ongoing development of breakthrough products.
