Hi, I’m Tommy Cook, CEO and founder of Calnex Solutions. When people ask me what Calnex does, I reply ‘We help ensure telecommunication systems have a future.’ If they don’t glaze over at that point, I’ll usually elaborate: ‘With our products, Network Equipment and Component Manufacturers, as well as Network Operators, can prove their products and services meet the rigorous International standards required to deliver flawless wireless and wireline communications around the world.’ I really am a big hit at parties.
