A product launch, a few executive appointments, and some subsea cable plans to peruse:
TE SubCom has unveiled a new enhanced line monitoring system with better resolution, an improved GUI, and more configurable alarm generation. Subcom's all-optical eLMS provides continuous tracking of cable performance and fault conditions, and will be in all their systems moving forward starting with one launching in Q4 of this year. Basically it takes on the job of interpreting the raw data rather than leaving it up to mere humans.
Along with its earnings report yesterday, Zayo brought another executive on board. Industry veteran Ed Morche will be the Zayo Group'd President of Sales, hiring him away from Level 3 where he had been a group VP responsible for sales, sales engineering, business operations, commercial services and metro market expansion in North America. It's hardly a surprise that with the CenturyLink deal looming in Broomfield, a few Level 3 executives will make their way 15 miles up the road to Boulder.
And Aqua Comms has boosted its leadership team as well. Andy Hudson has been named Chief Network Officer while Kevin Foley will take on the role of Chief Financial Officer. Hudson was COO of the Bermuda Telephone Company, while Foley was CFO at Cable & Wireless Barbados. The company has new projects in mind for the expanded leadership team to work on: CeltixConnect-2, which will be a second leg across the Irish Sea to the south, and North Sea Connect, which would cross between the northeast of the UK and Denmark.
