It was in 2000 that Tony Werner made The Big Shift — from the operator side of the business, as CTO of AT&T Broadband, to the vendor side, signing on as CEO of Aurora Networks. In Part 1 of this interview, we cover what Aurora does (optical networking equipment for cable operators), why he moved to the vendor side (liked the people, product, niche), and whether the cable industry will ever get to the place where “fiber-deep” means to the home (“not in this decade.”)
