Tollgrade Communications has hired Peter Van Peenan to define and execute the company’s cable product strategy.
Peenan, who is based at Tollgrade’s Sarasota office, will spearhead Tollgrade’s product concepts and development, through customer launches, and service maintenance.
Most recently, he served as a consultant to Verizon’s fiber-to-the-premises project. Before that, he handled various products for the Acterna (now part of JDS Uniphase) cable networks unit.
“In this new role, Pete has joined our Executive Council and he will be a key player in helping to develop the company’s long-term strategy, particularly in the cable arena,” said Tollgrade President & CEO Mark Peterson, in a release.
Tollgrade markets a range of hardware and software testing products for the telecom and cable industries.
