Thereafter, a consulting position with Cisco followed for a short time.

After that, he was the representative for Rapid City Communications (L2/L3 Gigabit Ethernet switch/router) for Asia until Bay Networks purchased Rapid City Communications in 1997. After the Bay purchase (now Nortel Networks), Michael held a position of Director and General Manager of Sales Division Bay Networks Japan where he was responsible for all sales in Japan.
