Mr. Lober is President/CEO of SLA Corporation, the parent company of ESChat. Since its foundation in 1991, SLA has developed numerous wireless solutions for Government, Commercial and Military applications. SLA’s Commercial wireless history includes 1G thru 4G network infrastructure, specifically AMPS, ETACS, IS-136, CDMA 1xEVDO (Rev. 0 and Rel. A) and LTE.
