Emerson Network Power has announced the appointment of Ronald Astorga as telecom vertical manager for its Philippine market unit, signifying the company?s aggressive plans to augment growth in its telco business.
?Ronald?s proven track record in this market, manifested in his breakthrough successes with the Philippines? leading telecommunications companies, makes him well-suited for this role,? said Barry Bunyi, acting country manager of Emerson Network Power in the Philippines.
?2012 showed us several big opportunities to integrate our world-class critical infrastructure solutions with ongoing and planned network improvement projects, so we look forward to strengthening Emerson?s position as the top-of-mind choice for local telco customers, with Ronald at the helm.?
Emerson Network Power has made headway in recent network build projects for customers in the Asia Pacific region in the past years.
In 2011, the company announced a landmark $100-million contract to build a superfast broadband network spanning the entire continent of Australia.
?This type of project ? be it in solutions, geographical scope and strict turnaround time ? can definitely be replicated by Emerson Network Power anywhere in the world,? said Astorga.
?Emerson Network Power understands that telcos need to utilize energy-efficient technologies that would translate to OPEX savings, without sacrificing network availability and superior quality of service expected by subscribers.
?Our recent string of wins with local telecom players has been tied to network improvement and expansion projects that ultimately enable our customers to improve their telecommunications services.?
Astorga will continue to report to Bunyi and will be supported by Edgar Morales, telecom account manager for Emerson Network Power in the Philippines.
Astorga graduated from Adamson University with a degree in Computer Engineering. He also finished the LEAP Program at the Asian Institute of Management in 2011.
