Frank W. Peters (1938 - 2008)
Chairman, CEO and Director
As founder of Franklin Telecom and FNet Corporations, Frank was the driving force behind the conception and development of communications products used worldwide, They were the largest single customer for the MPP product. This product designed and developed by Franklin Telecom replaced existing technology by doing more than what was then available.
Similar situations existed at Emlak Bank, Telekurz, and many other banks and financial institutions around the world. -- We need to evaluate whether mentioning specific corporations and institutions helps the case, Perhaps it would be better to signify without stating, that is "the country in questions largest bank - Emlak bank in Turkey" or "investment banking firm headquarterred int Switzerland and United States" which is none other than Telekurz, maybe the name dropping is best done with actually doing it.
From 1975 - 1984 he was President of Franklin Data Systems Corporation which introduced the first store and forward communication message switch operating on a PC.
Additionally, Frank was Vice President for Jacquard Systems Corporation for four years, spent eight years with IBM in several positions including Engineer, Product Manager and Marketing Manager and was a Nuclear Engineer with the Atomics International Division of Rockwell International.
Mr. Peters received a Bachelors Degree in Physics from California State University, Los Angeles in 1963 and did graduate work in high energy physics at Cal Tech in Pasadena, CA. During his tenure at Atomics International - at 24 years old - Frank Peters was the first to launch a nuclear fission reactor into space. It remains in orbit today. Later, at IBM, he was responsible for developing a nuclear power supply for space, then moved into telemetry and communications. He transferred to Los Angeles with responsibilities for new business development in natural resource management.
Frank Peters has five children. Four of those, Mike, Kristin, Mark, and Erin shared his vision of VoIP and the uses of intellectual property. Frank Peters passed away in 2008. Frank indicated in his final statement to Mike that this corporation should give voice to the ideas. His idea was largely that VoIP was not just a technology, but a a call to arms for free enterprise and against the status quo. Mike and Erin are goal oriented toward recognizing the true impact on communications that Frank W. Peters and Franklin Telecommunications Intellectual Property have and will have on the communications landscape.
