Y K Sharma joins DEN from Tikona Digital Networks, a wireless broadband company with a 4G licence, where he was COO.
S N Sharma says, "DEN has been gearing up for its broadband foray over the last few months. We have already carried out proof of concept tests on DOCSIS 3.0 platforms and achieved speeds of 100 Mbps in controlled conditions, which is far higher than what most broadband platforms are able to offer today. We now plan to take broadband across our digital subscriber base and offer consumers an unbeatable high speed data experience."
Y K Sharma brings with him a vast experience in the field of consumer technology. He has handled product businesses like mobile phones, VoIP CPEs, Wi-Fi, DECT, Bluetooth, Video endpoints and enterprise solutions such as Unified Communications (UC), Video-Collaboration (VC) and Tele-Presence.
In an official statement released by the company, Sameer Manchanda, chairman and managing director, DEN Networks, says, "Following the unprecedented success of digitisation with addressability, the focus for our industry now expands to providing true high speed broadband services and bundled double and triple play offerings to consumers."
Before Tikona Digital, Sharma has worked with Polycom Inc. as regional director, India and Southeast Asia. He has been associated with leading Indian and global firms like Tata Telecom, Siemens India, LG Electronics and Parsec Technologies.
For the record, DEN is present in 13 states across India including Delhi, Uttar Pradesh, Karnataka, Maharashtra, Gujarat, Rajasthan, Haryana, Kerala, West Bengal, Jharkhand and Bihar.
