Xtend Networks, which provides advanced broadband solutions for the cable TV industry, recently added David Nicholas ’76 to its executive management team as senior vice president of strategic sales. The 20-year cable and technology veteran is responsible for working with cable system operators and Xtend partners to create opportunities for the company’s delivery of symmetrical, voicegrade T1 (1.544 megabits per second), and 3 GHZ services over hybrid fiber-coaxial network architectures.

“The emergence of advanced interactive services has positioned the cable industry at the threshold of a new Golden Age,” he says.

Nicholas previously was vice president of worldwide sales for N2 Broadband, a leading provider of open-platform solutions that allow cable network operators and content providers to offer on-demand services like video-on-demand. He oversaw development of incremental revenue streams across all lines of the company’s domestic and international business.

Prior to that, Nicholas was vice president of global sales for the video-on-demand division of Concurrent Computer; executive vice president of Pioneer New Media Technologies, responsible for sales, marketing, and new business development; and vice president and general manager of Texscan Network System. In addition, he has held sales management positions at Pioneer Communications of America, Panasonic Industrial, and Magnavox.

A government and law graduate, Nicholas earned a master’s degree at Syracuse University.
