"I am thrilled to join the Aylus Networks management team," said Ball. "Aylus is responsible for many firsts in the marketplace. The Aylus mobile video infrastructure software delivers mobile video communications at scale and in a way that can be monetized by mobile operators, service providers and communications infrastructure providers alike. A great strength of the Aylus platform is that it enables connectivity for video services between different networks, communities of interest and mobile video applications on a wide range of devices. Aylus is leading the way to the widespread, mass-market adoption of high quality live mobile video services."
Steve has co-authored three patents related to network and service management. He earned his BSc in Electrical Computer Engineering from Clarkson University and his Master of Engineering (Electrical) from Cornell University.
