B.Yond Names Global Industry Executive Rui Frazao as EVP European Operations
B.Yond today announced the appointment of Rui Frazao as the company’s Executive Vice President European Operations, effective immediately. Frazao will focus on business development, customer engagement and expansion of the company’s presence in Europe.
Frazao has a track record of technology transformation in strategic leadership roles. He joins B.Yond from Vasona Networks, a leader in network performance and edge computing software for mobile operators (recently acquired by ZephyrTel). He most recently served as CTO, leading the company’s technical innovation in mobile broadband optimization. Frazao worked with customers worldwide on advancing mobile-edge software solutions and solidifying Vasona’s position as a market leader.
“We’re witnessing the 5G revolution, which requires operators to transform from networks to cloud platforms to succeed. Rui brings a unique perspective, having worked in the customer capacity at Vodafone, as well as a technology supplier to operators. His executive experience includes working with the world’s largest telecom operators, witnessing firsthand how the cloud can open up opportunities to compete on innovation, just like web scale companies do,” said Ned Taleb, CEO of B.Yond. “He brings a worldwide market perspective and will be an outstanding addition to our leadership team. Rui will help us disrupt the traditional telco-vendor relationship with a new model based on partnering for the journey to enable innovation via a cloud-native platform and applied AI.”
Prior to Vasona, Frazao spent 15 years with Vodafone in various technology positions, including serving as the director of network engineering for efforts across Germany, the Netherlands, Hungary and the Czech Republic. His work with Vodafone included implementing the industry’s earliest VoLTE deployments and launching the first virtualized network core platforms in Europe. Before that, he held roles with Cisco Systems, Portuguese financial payment network SIBS and the Lisbon Stock Exchange.
“I am thrilled to be joining B.Yond at this exciting time where the company is addressing the needs of telecom operators on their cloudification journey,” said Frazao. “The company’s technology, strong management team and the market’s potential to leverage machine learning and automation for network and cloud present exciting opportunities.”
B.Yond is an artificial intelligence (AI) company that develops automation software for network Operators, bringing modern web scale operational models to telcos seeking to move to 5G and Edge. Operators are at an inflection point, needing to transform from a network provider to a cloud platform.

B.Yond delivers this via AI-based automation software. B.Yond is a founding member of the Linux Foundation Deep Learning Foundation, the Acumos foundation, and other technical and open source groups to promote innovation in AI and machine learning.
