today announced the appointment of David Baranski as Vice President of
Sales. Baranski, a former 3Com executive, will lead Advent Networks'
domestic deployment initiatives and global distribution of the company's
Advent's Ultraband platform is the first operational broadband cable

fiber-coax (HFC) networks. The Ultraband platform integrates into today's
cable networks and opens up new revenue opportunities for delivering data
and voice services to small- and medium-sized business markets and other

two years with cable modems at 500 kbps to 2 Mbps," Baranski said.

effectively providing fiber-optic speeds over existing cable networks."
