SAN JOSE, Calif. -- Teradiant Networks, Inc., a leading developer and supplier of silicon solutions for next-generation networks, today announced that it has appointed semiconductor industry veteran Mark Vecchiarelli to the position of Vice President of Sales. Mr. Vecchiarelli will lead Teradiant in securing contracts with leading OEMs incorporating Teradiant's breakthrough semiconductor technology in a new generation of high-bandwidth, high-ROI routers and switches, and will be responsible for developing and managing Teradiant's sales and support channels worldwide.

Mr. Vecchiarelli brings to Teradiant over 20 years of semiconductor sales, marketing and operations experience. He was most recently Vice President of Sales and Support for Zettacom, a developer of high-performance networking semiconductors, where he helped the company achieve industry-leading revenue, design-win and market-share growth figures.

Previously he was Director of West Coast Sales for Applied Micro Circuits Corporation (AMCC), where he was the company's top performer in design wins, percentage growth in value-per-design, and percentage revenue growth. Mr. Vecchiarelli also held senior sales positions in leading semiconductor firms such as Transwitch, LG Semicon, and OKI Semiconductor.

"Mark brings Teradiant a vast range of semiconductor experience and established relationships with not only the entrenched networking-system vendors, but also with emerging leaders," said Satchit Jain, CEO of Teradiant. "Mark's sales performance in high-growth industry firms speaks for itself, his semiconductor industry background is highly regarded, and he has built strong sales organizations for both new and established semiconductor companies."

Mr. Vecchiarelli's industry knowledge and his relationships with top networking-system OEMs will help Teradiant expand its current customer base and further establish its TeraPacket family of chips as the major enabling traffic-manager chips for a variety of system and linecard applications in switching and routing. In September 2003, Teradiant became the first vendor to announce availability of traffic manager chips offering 40Gbps aggregate bandwidth. One such chip, the TeraPacket TN9450, was named "Best Coprocessor" at NPC West, the leading conference focusing on network processors, traffic managers, and related chips.
