Varadarajan, Subbu

Subbu is the founder and CEO of Zycada Networks, a company that redefines Quality of Experience by optimizing for each network connection. Subbu believes in truth by numbers. He relishes the nuance between algorithms and heuristics. His area of expertise is high-performance networking and NP-Hard problems. He is also one of the creators of HTTP streaming. Subbu created Akamai's first HTTP HD Streaming platform, which served many high-profile events such as MLB, NFL, and most notably President Obama's first inauguration speech. Having authored 10+ patents/publications in the area of Networking and Network security domains, coupled with his experience from working in top networking companies such as Akamai, Cisco and Alcatel R&D, he came to the hard realization that the way the industry was tackling performance problems, was inadequate. Subbu holds a master's degree in computer science specializing in Networking and Telecommunications from The University of Texas at Dallas, and a certificate of the Stanford Innovation and Entrepreneurship (SIE) Program.
