The rise of hyperscale data centers has upended computing and networking equipment business models over the past several years. The pluggable optics industry is no exception and has been impacted significantly. In Episode 26, we continue our second conversation with Ron Horan, Cisco Senior Director of Product Management. We dive further into fiber cable infrastructure and get into the history of hyperscales. – Pat Chou, Cisco Optics Product Manager Ron attended The University of Texas at San Antonio for both his bachelor’s and master’s degrees. His Master’s thesis topic entitled “Synthetic Vision Landing Aids System” was patented as the first GPS-based aircraft landing aid. From 1994 to 1999, while at Compaq, he earned 15 patent awards. In 2001, he joined Broadcom Corporation where he managed Field Applications Engineering for the Compute Segment team, ran Program Management in the Networking BU, and was a Sr. Director of Sales and Strategic Account Manager covering the Hewlett Packard worldwide account. In 2011 Ron moved to Luxtera where he worked as Vice President of Sales before moving into the role as Vice President of Marketing. Luxtera was eventually acquired by Cisco in 2019 where Ron now runs Product Management for the Cisco Client Optics Group.
