Bill Cadogan, the former chairman and CEO of ADC, has joined Mahi Networks Inc. as the broadband transport specialist's chairman and interim CEO.
Chris Rust, Mahi's current CEO, will remain on the Mahi board.
Cadogan said connecting with major carriers and cable MSOs are on his short list.
Founded in 1999, Mahi offers two metro core platforms for next-gen, packet-based networks, the Mi7 and Vx7. The Mi7 integrates Sonet/SDH multiplexing with a 320-gigabit hybrid TDM packet switch, and the Vx7 is a transport platform that features an automated optical layer with reconfigurable optical add/drop capabilities.
