ATX Networks, a global specialist in broadband access and media distribution technology, reports that it recently "expanded the mission" of its professional services organization, the better to enhance the company's ability "to deliver critical design, implementation and operations assistance to cable operators as they evolve their networks to meet competitive challenges and ever-increasing subscriber demand," as stated by a press release.

The ATX professional services organization expansion includes the addition of a team of professional services veterans, led by Bob Murphy, ATX’s newly appointed senior vice president of professional services.

Murphy brings to ATX more than 25 years of leadership and network operational expertise. Prior to joining ATX, Murphy led the America’s Services Team at CommScope, where he was instrumental in establishing the company’s capabilities supporting outside plant engineering, design and deployment activities.

Murphy commented:

“The cable industry is entering an era of rapid expansion and new technology adoption, creating the need for professional services engagements that can relieve MSOs of some of the heavy lifting of evolving their networks. ATX, a leading provider of next-generation innovation for cable and satellite operators, also understands the critical importance of professional services. I’m excited to be part of the team.”

Under Murphy’s leadership, ATX is offering a wide range of assistance to service providers, including consulting, design, engineering, deployment and day-two support.

ATX’s suite of professional services enables operators to augment existing workforces with skilled professionals possessing detailed product knowledge, with the goal of helping MSOs improve subscriber experience, create new revenue streams, increase time to market, streamline operations and mitigate operational risks.

“ATX recognizes the need to complement our next-generation outside plant, digital optical transport and media distribution solutions with best-in-class professional services capabilities that will enable our customers to achieve their business goals ahead of schedule and with optimal efficiency,” commented ATX CEO Dan Whalen. “Bob and his team are pillars of the professional services community with a well-deserved reputation for helping service providers achieve their desired outcomes.”

He holds a Degree in Aviation Maintenance from Philadelphia Institute of Aviation in Pennsylvania.
