Fybr Promotes Linnell Gorden to Executive Vice President, Software Engineering.
Fybr Smart City Solutions proudly announces Linnell Gorden will be assuming the position of Executive Vice President, Software Engineering. Beginning with Fybr as a consultant in 2014, Gorden was initially brought on board to support the Java-based infrastructure in place at the time.
As someone with a lifelong fascination with electronics, Gorden was in his element at Fybr, coming on full-time by the end of that year, and quickly rising through the ranks from Senior Application Engineer, to Vice President, Software Engineering, to his new role as a Senior VP.
“Having the opportunity to be involved in the merging of software and hardware systems in a professional setting was awesome,” Gorden recalls. After over 16 years in IT support, most recently as an IT director, Gorden was thrilled to be somewhere his love of electronics and ability to think of new and innovative solutions was put to such significant effect.
Looking ahead, Gorden sees nothing but opportunity for Fybr’s platform. If anything, his fascination with technology has grown while with Fybr. “To be involved in the creation of a platform with the potential for true worldwide impact,” Gorden says, “that’s what keeps me excited to come to work every day.”

Camera-based image recognition systems are built on a simple premise- they are electronic “eyes” capable of recognizing unique items and capturing data. The unique item can be everything from a license plate number to a human face. Once recognized and captured, the resultant data can be applied to a wide variety of use cases, such as parking, traffic, or law enforcement. This simple premise is easy to grasp, and its outcome is a highly-desirable one. But as with many technologies, what works in theory under controlled conditions and what works in practice in real-world situations aren’t always the same.
