Novera Optics, a provider of optical access solutions, has announced that John Barton has joined the company as its CEO.
Mr Barton holds a bachelor of science in physics and a bachelor of science in mathematics from the University of California, Irvine. He has senior management and executive-level experience in the optical electronics market. He comes to Novera Optics from Flextronics, a contract manufacturer, where he served as vice president and general manager.
Mr Barton said: I am very pleased to join the talented team at Novera Optics. As the limitations of BPON, EPON, and GPON become apparent, carriers are increasingly looking for alternative solutions that can be transparently implemented. Novera’s deep technology base combined with its field-proven systems, plus increased demands for Access bandwidth, makes this an exciting time to be a leading supplier in the WDM-PON market.
