BigBand plays executive shuffle

BigBand Networks, a prominent pusher of switched digital video technology and, more recently, IPTV-over-cable solutions, has made several changes in its executive ranks. The company is seeing its COO David Heard and worldwide sales vice president Sean Rooney resign. BigBand also has transitioned its co-founder, Chairman and CEO Amir Bassan-Eskenazi to focus on being CEO only, while naming existing board member and industry veteran Mike Pohl as the new chairman.

BigBand was an early vendor both on the SDV and IPTV-over-cable fronts. The former segment has been slow at times, but an FCC ruling last year that encouraged support for devices such as DVRs to access SDV content seemed to open up the prospect of better business for SDV companies. Meanwhile, IPTV-over-cable has been one of the most-hyped areas of the TV service provider market over the last year or so.

BigBand just recently reported fourth quarter 2009 revenue and net income that was down from the same period in 2008.
