TMC and Crossfire Media are pleased to announce that Xirrus CEO, Dirk Gates will be keynote speaker on Wednesday, October 6, at 10:15 AM at the 4G Wireless Evolution (4GWE) Conference, taking place in Los Angeles, on October 4-6, 2010.

Wednesday October 6 - 10:15 a.m.

"Distributed Wi-Fi architectures, like the Xirrus Wi-Fi Array, are replacing wired networks as users demand the same level of ubiquitous connectivity in the workplace as they have in the home. Working with organizations like TMC and Crossfire Media allows for discussion about how to best deploy Wi-Fi to meet the needs of the wireless worker – to make certain IT organizations have the know-how and tools necessary to transition from wired to wireless.”
Dirk Gates, CEO

Dirk Gates - CEO, XIRRUS

Prior to Xirrus, Dirk Gates founded Xircom, Inc. in 1988 on the premise of delivering Ethernet connectivity to mobile computers. With venture funding from Greylock, Gates grew the company to 2,000 employees, achieved revenues of $500M, and a market cap in excess of $2B. During his tenure as Chairman and CEO, Gates led Xircom into the wireless arena through partnerships and acquisitions that positioned the company to deliver mobility solutions based on IEEE 802.11, GPRS and BlueTooth technologies. He subsequently negotiated the sale of Xircom to Intel Corp. in March of 2001.  Dirk Gates holds a Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering from California State University at Northridge and an MBA from Pepperdine University.
