Mr. Vikas Pinjarkar has been appointed Country Manager for India, and will head the new office.

"Our expansion into India is a further effort to penetrate one of the largest markets in Asia," said Igal Rotem, CEO of PowerDsine. "We believe that India has great business potential which can be seen in the expansion of government and institutional infrastructure, and we believe that this new office will greatly benefit Indian customers who will be deploying technologies such as Voice over IP and Wireless LAN systems."

Vikas Pinjarkar, PowerDsine's Country Manager for India said, "We view India as a market with great potential, given the growing technology needs of corporations throughout the country, particularly in the three major tech centers of Mumbai, New Delhi and Bangalore. I am very excited to be a part of the PowerDsine team, which is committed to the further adoption of PoE technology."

PowerDsine is marketing both its PoE integrated chipsets and midspan products via distributors, resellers and direct sales in India.
