Ikanos Communications names new vice president of marketing
Feb 21, 2013 (Datamonitor via COMTEX) --
Ikanos Communications, Inc., a provider of broadband semiconductor and software products, has appointed Kourosh Amiri as its new vice president of marketing.
Mr Amiri will report to Omid Tahernia, president and CEO, and will lead the company's global marketing and product strategy. With more than 20 years of experience in the semiconductor industry, Amiri has been responsible for the introduction of products targeting a range of applications in the networking, communications, and consumer segments, the company said.
Amiri joins Ikanos from Cavium, where he led marketing and business development for its media processor group. Prior to joining Cavium, Amiri held senior marketing and business development roles at Freescale and several venture-backed semiconductor start-ups, addressing a range of networking and media processing applications.
"With the rapid growth in consumer appetite for generating, sharing, and consuming content, and the cloud-based storage and delivery of this content becoming mainstream, the demand for bandwidth and broadband connectivity has never been stronger," said Amiri. "With its industry-leading broadband technology, impressive patent portfolio, and strong technical and management teams, Ikanos is very well positioned to meet this rising consumer demand and to take a leadership role in shaping the future of digital-home content sharing and delivery."
"As broadband rates of 50 to 100Mbps are now required for applications such as gaming, streaming video, VoIP and IPTV all operating within the home it's critical that we have the right strategy to ensure we turn our unique technical advantages in broadband connectivity and home networking into successful and profitable products in the marketplace," said Tahernia. "Kourosh brings the right balance of networking and consumer market experience to help us better define and execute on such a strategy."
