Rajesh Mishra
Founder, President, and CTO at Parallel Wireless


Rajesh Mishra is a visionary who, together with the other Parallel Wireless, Inc.’s founders, accurately identified the need for easy to deploy, resilient and cost effective network architectures that would overcome many of the legacy technical challenges associated with wireless communications — the foundation upon which Parallel Wireless was born. Rajesh co-founded the company after 21+ years of reimagining the wireless, wireline, and cable industry and he leads the technology behind the Parallel Wireless’ solutions. As one of the industry’s pioneers in convergence technologies, he led the development of next-gen VoLTE and 3G/4G Femtocell convergence servers at Tatara, led transformation of first commercial softswitch into a Wireless MSC product at Bell Labs/Lucent, reimagined cable industry leading IMS servers at Cedarpoint, and led a commercial mobile ad hoc networks (MANETS) development at Powerwave Cognition.

Rajesh’s background also includes designing an enterprise Unified Communications System (Whaleback); developing a next-generation soft switch (Excel Switching). At the beginning of his career, Rajesh was involved in early development of analog and digital wireless base stations at Steinbrecher/Tellabs and Hughes Network Systems.

Mr. Mishra has been awarded many industry awards, among them: Lucent Technologies/ Bell Lab Distinguished member award, IEEE paper presentation awards. He also has experience as a spokesperson with industry and business press, analysts and as a presenter at industry conferences.
