DockOn Opens Development Center in San Diego
DockOn announced they have opened new corporate offices and design labs in San Diego, California. In addition, DockOn announced they have added Gregory Poilasne as Vice President of Business Development and Technical Advisor to the Board of Directors.
Previously based in Reno, Nevada, DockOn has relocated to 5754 Pacific Center Boulevard, in the heart of San Diego's Sorrento Valley, which has long been home to some of the world's leading wireless technology companies. The new location will house DockOn's US corporate headquarters, as well as design and test facilities. The company has invested in lab equipment to meet growing customer needs, including a Satimo RF test chamber, which is used to provide fast and reliable RF measurements for wireless systems.
"DockOn is experiencing a period of rapid growth thanks to the popularity of our CPL antenna technology and rapid custom design processes," stated Patrick Johnston, CEO of DockOn. "Relocating the testing and design lab to San Diego will allow DockOn to better support our growing customer base. Sorrento Valley's wireless talent and resources are unmatched."
The first to join DockOn's team in San Diego is Gregory Poilasne. Mr. Poilasne brings more than 16 years of wireless experience with companies such as Kyocera Wireless and Ethertronics. As Vice President of Business Development, Mr. Poilasne spearheads DockOn's growing Wi-Fi access point business, as well as expansion into emerging markets such as smart meters, wireless medical devices and other M2M applications. Leveraging his PhD in telecommunications from the University of Rennes and years of antenna engineering experience, Mr. Poilasne will also serve as Technical Advisor to the Board of Directors.
"I am extremely excited to be a part of the forward-thinking team that is DockOn," said Mr. Poilasne. "DockOn's CPL technology is unique, enabling unprecedented performance, flexibility of design, reliability and ease of manufacture, and especially the design process improvements that will redefine the way mass market wireless devices are designed and built."
