BANGALORE: Cisco Systems today announced that Rangu

David Caspari, Cisco’s vice-president of Service Provider Operations, Asia
Pacific, after a transition process, will become the acting president of Cisco
India, while a search for a permanent replacement for Salgame is conducted.

Caspari will continue to report to Owen Chan, Cisco’s President of Asia
Pacific Operations.

“Rangu Salgame has been instrumental in the significant growth and development
of our business in India. Over the last three years, he has built a strong,
customer-focused leadership team. I would like to thank Rangu for his
substantial contributions – and wish him the best as he moves to the next phase
of his career,” said Chan.

Under Salgame’s leadership, Cisco has experienced unprecedented growth and
gains in market share in India. The Indian networking market has grown rapidly
in the recent years, fueled by liberalization, market reforms and
telecommunications deregulation.

India over a three-year period in recognition of the country’s rapid
development both as a market and a center of research and development.

2003. Before joining Cisco to lead the company’s India operations, Salgame

the president and CEO of Edgix, an Internet infrastructure company, with
operations across North America, Latin America and Europe.

Before Edgix he was a senior executive with Verizon Communications.
