Sunnyvale, CA--Mike Kelly was appointed vice president of sales for the cable market--a newly created position--at Infinera (NASDAQ: INFN). The company says the position was created in response to its growing success among top-performing fiber-optic cable operators in the U.S. and says the appointment is part of a broader initiative to apply more focus on key market segments and global geographies as the company grows.

Kelly has been involved with cable television and network infrastructure companies for more than 30 years, including senior sales roles at Antec (now Arris), C-Cor, and Juniper Networks. With every one of the top five U.S. cable systems deploying photonic integrated circuit (PIC)-based Infinera solutions, Kelly joins a team that has built a strong position in the U.S. cable market. In addition to cable, Infinera is growing its sales force to provide additional focus on key vertical markets such as incumbent operators and submarine service providers.

"The competitive advantages of our PIC-based approach and our DTN platform have enabled Infinera to maintain our market leadership in North America," said Infinera Sr. VP of worldwide sales Ron Martin. "Our growth in new segments and countries will let us capitalize on our innovative approach and help additional service providers build Digital Optical Networks that will lower their costs and make them more competitive."
