, a pioneer in Radio Access Network (RAN) virtualization,
announces a new addition to its board of directors. Bill Smith, former

technology operations, planning and engineering, construction and
optimization, service delivery and assurance and global foundational
services. Previously, he served as Executive Vice President, Shared
Services, in charge of mass market and enterprise operations, corporate

BellSouth Corp. in 1979, and has held numerous positions in technology,

overall technology direction for BellSouth's core infrastructure.

"We are very excited to have Bill join our board of directors during
this important time of development and growth," said Gilad Garon, CEO,
ASOCS. "Bill brings a vast amount of experience in large scale global
operations with a tier 1 operator which will add tremendous value to
ASOCS as we start to scale operations and expand deployments with
operators around the world."

"I am honored to join ASOCS' board of directors and look forward to
partnering with the management team as we continue to expand the
company's operations into new regions and markets," said Bill Smith.
"Operators have struggled to find more cost-effective ways to serve
their enterprise customers, which is why a disruptive approach was
clearly needed. Virtualized RAN solutions like ASOCS' Cyrus have the
potential to break through long-standing barriers to lower the cost of
mobile networks in enterprises and unlock new business offerings for
operators."
