He was also the chairman of the Metro Ethernet Forum (MEF).

Tarazi received his Master of Engineering in Telecommunications Management from Southern Methodist University and a Bachelor of Engineering in Telecommunications Engineering from the University of Maryland.

"His extensive background in the telecommunications industry and deep technology experience will provide the board with valuable insights into the ongoing evolution of our addressable markets," says chairman & CEO Tim Jenks.
