Chow takes over from Larry Robinson, the latest former Arris employee to depart the company.
Chow started the IPTV business at Cisco, later becoming the general manager for the company’s CPE division, before seeing the business integrated into Technicolor after its sale by Cisco. Most recently Chow was the SVP of product and programme management at Wi-Fi chipset manufacturer Quantenna.
“I’ve been through all types of company experiences, including multiple mergers and acquisitions, consolidations and integrations—as CommScope, ARRIS, and Ruckus are going through now — and it’s given me a strong perspective on how to distill a company’s strengths and build competitive positioning, said Chow.
Earlier this month, CommScope removed former Arris CEO Bruce McClelland from his role as COO following a tough second quarter. Former Ruckus boss Ian Whiting left in June.
