In Episode 21, we continue our conversation with Tom Williams, Director of Technical Marketing, who joined Cisco via the Acacia acquisition. We get into Acacia’s unique approach to making coherent optics. – Pat Chou, Cisco Optics Product Manager Tom Williams leads marketing efforts for the Acacia coherent optics team that was acquired by Cisco in March 2021.
