BroadLight has established an office in Shanghai and hired Kevin Zhang as Country Manager.
BroadLight delivers the industry's only end-to-end solution for equipment vendors designing ITU-T compliant passive optical network (PON) systems.
The opening of a China office is BroadLight's latest move to expand its worldwide infrastructure in response to its growing customer base. The company also opened a Japan office in January 2006 and just recently announced that it had signed 25 new licensees for its GPON silicon and software solution.
"China represents one of our fastest growing markets and this investment reaffirms our commitment to the region," said Raphael Sankar, Vice President of Worldwide Sales for BroadLight. "Under the leadership of Kevin Zhang, we believe BroadLight's GPON technology will become the PON technology of choice in China as it offers more performance and lower costs than competing fiber access solutions."
