As President and Chief Executive Officer, Shawn M. Lewis oversees all activities of the company and its three subsidiaries, Volo Communications, Caerus Networks, Inc., and Caerus Billing & Mediation, Inc., as they implement his vision for a truly open and convergent telecom marketplace, enabling the rapid development and deployment of profitable advanced services.
Shawn Lewis wrote the patent for the first Softswitch and SS7 Media Gateway for XCOM Technologies, Inc., a CLEC he co-founded at the time of the Telecommunications Act in 1996 and directed before its acquisition by Level 3 in 1998. Level 3 proceeded to make these patents public, which created the packet communications industry. His next venture, set-top box vendor, River Delta, sold to Motorola. His third successful venture, Caerus, Inc. empowers carriers and service providers to begin selling advanced services and realizing revenues and profits immediately. The market is enthusiastically responding to Caerus’ approach and service offerings.
