BlackBerry appoints director to new business unit 

BlackBerry’s technology assets include QNX (an embedded software), Project Ion (an IoT platform), Certicom (cryptography applications), Paratek (RF antenna tuning) and the company’s patent portfolio. These assets form the BTS business unit.

“I am very pleased that Sandeep has joined BlackBerry to lead BTS,” said executive chairman and CEO John Chen, in a press release. “QNX, Certicom and Paratek are strategic and technically innovative assets with significant potential to address the much wider global markets for secure, reliable communications and embedded applications. Project Ion creates an application platform that enables secure and collaborative machine-to-machine communication required by the growing number of end-to-end, Internet of Things applications. Our broad global portfolio of 44,000 patents is of value to several industry segments. Combining all these assets into a single business unit led by Sandeep will create operational synergies and new revenue streams, furthering our turnaround strategy.”

As a named inventor on 73 patents and a fellow of the IEEE, Chennakeshu was CTO and president of Sony-Ericsson’s mobile platforms and has been doing research, product development, IP creation/licensing and management in the electronics and semiconductor industry for 25 years.

Chennakeshu starts immediately.
