6/24/2004 3:34 AM Eastern

Narad Networks Inc. has a new CEO: James D. Norrod.

Norrod had been with Telebit Corp., a manufacturer and distributor of high-end data-communications equipment to enterprise markets.

Narad creates managed “Virtual Fiber” networks that enable the delivery of broadband Internet-protocol services over existing cable infrastructure, minimizing operators' capital expenditure and maximizing their return on investment.

“I see in Narad a terrific opportunity to support the cable operators in their approach to enterprise customers," Norrod said in a prepared statement.

“Narad has been preparing its products for very high reliability and performance, and offers the lightest touch to existing HFC [hybrid fiber-coaxial] networks,” he added. “As the cable industry has been preparing for accelerated growth in the commercial-services sector, Narad has developed business-class technology tool sets to help fuel this growth.”
