Rory Sweet has left RBR Networks to start two new networking businesses. The founder and chairman of Cisco distributor RBR -- this week renamed Comstor -- has set up a networking reseller in Cirencester called Zycko Ltd. Profits from Zycko will be used to start a company called E-cable.com, which will sell networking accessories online. E-cable.com is planned for launch within the next five months. Comstor has not replaced Sweet. According to Paul Cunningham, the company's marketing director, Sweet's role is redundant now the company is part of the larger Comstor business. But it looks likely that Sweet's influence will not entirely disappear from Comstor. "He will still work closely with us, but the ventures will work independently of Comstor," said Cunningham. Sweet was unavailable for comment. ® Related stories: How much is a Cisco distribution franchise worth? Datatec buys US Cisco distie
