re: ADVA Exec Shakeup Continues Changes at Executive level are clear signs of trouble, not to mention being done four times in a year. I wonder how many people have defected, underneath the executive level??

Where is the ship's steering wheel?

Well, he was a mover and shaker -- five years ago.

While at Fujitsu, he was credited with helping the company secure a market leadership position in the Sonet transport equipment space.

But then he disappeared into the abyss of Cisco's optical business, never to be heard from again.

A spokesperson at ADVA told me that he was looking to play a larger role in a smaller company, where he could make a bigger difference.

ADVA's business has been pretty solid over the past year, although the company did lower guidance for the fourth quarter. I'm talking with the CEO tomorrow, so hopefully I'll get some insight into what's going on with the new management.

re: ADVA Exec Shakeup Continues I think you are overstating his influence or any other exec for that matter.

Fuj. did well because with RBOCS because they had very good products in SONET. Cisco did not do well because they do not have as good a product as Fuj.

The influence of execs on large carriers is overstated by the "ignorant". The RBOC has a strict selection process which negates influence from higher management. The 'inmates' run the jail not the 'guards' - LOL

This does not mean Ron will not make a success of ADVA - it is good to see a carrier guy get out of the enterprise CISCO BS.
