CPLANE NETWORKS Recognized by ABI Research as a Hot Tech Innovator

ABI Research, a leader in providing research on transformative technology, highlights CPLANE NETWORKS in 3Q 2017 report

San Carlos, CA, September 20, 2017 — CPLANE NETWORKS, a global leader in distributed cloud orchestration for edge applications such as Industrial IoT, intelligent cars, immersive experiences and video processing, today announced its inclusion by ABI Research as one of only fifteen companies to highlight in its “Hot Tech Innovators: Telco Cloud” 3Q 2017 report. The 20-page ABI Research report is a first look at the companies at the “forefront of transformational innovation,” according to ABI Research

The 15 companies we have profiled illustrate a completely new way of developing network technology. In some cases, they have even won business against Tier-1 vendors, which are 100 times their size, have 100 times their R&D budget and have a formidable sales organization,” said Dimitris Mavrakis, Research Director at ABI Research. These companies win with software skills, cloud computing, open sourcing, and being free of a legacy business to support.

CPLANE NETWORKS is the only company that delivers true “end-to-end” service orchestration and integrated software-defined networking (SDN) for highly-distributed edge clouds that provide on-demand resources for intelligent edge applications and devices. CPLANE’s Multi-Site Manager eliminates the complexity normally associated with creating multiple distributed clouds for a single customer – a task that would be impossible to perform manually for the hundreds, and even thousands, of edge clouds associated with IoT, M2M and intelligent personal devices. When combined with CPLANE’s high-performance SDN solutions, DVNd and DVNi, MSM creates a fully-integrated cloud ecosystem that can support service chains that span data centers, access points, customer premises and mobile edge microsites.

ABI Research’s report places CPLANE NETWORKS in a group of “Hot Tech Innovators” companies that are:

  • younger and less well-known than the incumbents
  • at the technological forefront of their markets
  • developing new business models
  • destabilizing the current market
  • prime acquisition targets

“ABI Research’s recognition of CPLANE NETWORKS as a Hot Tech Innovator in the Telco cloud market exemplifies our leadership in creating the platform for delivering highly-distributed cloud services for the trillion dollar IoT, M2M and intelligent edge applications market,” said Brandon Williams, CEO of CPLANE NETWORKS. “The scale and complexity of edge clouds requires a new, innovative approach to virtualized resource orchestration. Our integrated orchestration platform and SDN solutions provide the service abstraction and topology management and insight that are key to delivering clouds that scale up to thousands of virtual machines and scale out to thousands of distributed sites.”
