This latest series of financing was lead by new Brix investor Castile Ventures, and also included long-time company backers Charles River Ventures, ComVentures, Fidelity Ventures, Partech International, and STAR Ventures.

Additionally, Nina Saberi, a partner at Castile, has joined the Brix Board of Directors where she'll serve along with Tom Pincince, president and CEO of Brix Networks; Joe Chinnici, senior vice president, finance and CFO, CIENA Corporation; Rubin Gruber, founder and chairman emeritus, Sonus Networks; Rob Ketterson, managing partner, Fidelity Ventures; Alan Taffel, former vice president of marketing, UUNET Technologies (now part of MCI); and Mike Zak, partner, Charles River Ventures.
