Facilitating Growth in Engineering and Sales to Keep Pace with Worldwide Demand

Zixi, the industry leader for enabling dependable, live broadcast-quality video over all IP networks, announced the hiring in vital roles and the opening of offices in three strategic regions to capitalize on the rapid customer growth being seen across the globe. To keep pace with the growth, in addition to the Waltham, Massachusetts headquarters and R&D center in Tel Aviv, Zixi has established presence in New York, Los Angeles and London in order to work more intimately with the large and expanding customer base on the East and West Coasts of the US, as well as in Europe.
