LOUISVILLE, Colo.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–#CRDO–Today, CableLabs appointed Mariam Sorond as the organization’s Senior Vice President and Chief Research & Development Officer, reporting to President and CEO Phil McKinney. In this role, Sorond will lead Research & Development (R&D) directing the execution and adoption of new technologies for CableLabs’ members and the industry, partnering closely with McKinney on technical thought leadership, vision and strategy for the future of connectivity.

“We’re thrilled to welcome Mariam to CableLabs, bringing her depth of experience and expertise to our members and the industry,” said McKinney. “As we advance toward a digital future encompassing even greater wireless capabilities, it is crucial for both CableLabs and the broadband industry at large to be led by innovative executives with extensive knowledge in wireless technologies and technology policy.”

At DISH, she served as the Chief Wireless Architect and Vice President of Technology Development. Sorond led the R&D effort for an innovative 5G network and created the next-generation network architecture, as well as spectrum technology, technology policy, standards development and the negotiation of technical agreements across government agencies and industry partnerships.

Prior to joining DISH, Sorond worked for several operators, including Nextel, ICO and PrimeCo, and vendors such as Lucent Technologies (now Nokia). She has served as a member of the NTIA’s Commerce Spectrum Management Advisory Committee since 2014.
