Light Reading Names Cyan Private Company of the Year
NEW YORK, NY, Nov 08, 2012 (MARKETWIRE via COMTEX) --
Cyan announced today that it has been named "private company of the
year" by Light Reading at its annual Leading Lights event in New
York. The Leading Lights program recognizes innovative companies and
products that portend the direction of technology advances. Cyan was
honored with the Leading Lights award as a result of its rapid
worldwide growth and its innovative combination of software-defined
networking (SDN) and packet-optical transport technologies. This
combination has proven to help service providers scale their networks
and accelerate service delivery while reducing underlying costs.
According to Eric Clelland, Cyan CMO, "As a key commentator on the
telecom and networking industries, Light Reading has a long history
of identifying the companies and products that reshape the technology
landscape. It is an honor to be recognized as the top non-public
company in the industry and for our commitment to helping our
operator customers advance service delivery."
Cyan is at the forefront of a strengthening industry trend toward
more scalable, more flexible, and less complex networks through
greater reliance on software. The recently introduced Cyan Blue
Planet SDN system makes major strides toward this vision by opening
up previously closed ecosystems and extending the benefits of SDN --
namely network virtualization, reduced capital and operating costs,
accelerated service deployment -- to telecom networks based largely
on legacy equipment.
Cyan is currently demonstrating Blue Planet at Light Reading's
Ethernet Expo conference in New York, along with the company's
industry leading Z-Series packet-optical transport platforms
(P-OTPs). The highly scalable Z-Series platform delivers up to 2.8
Tbps of capacity for wavelength and packet services.
Cyan is global supplier of software-defined networks (SDNs) for
service providers, data center operators, and private networks. Cyan
solutions include Blue Planet SDN software, Z-Series multi-layer
packet-optical transport platforms, and Cyan PRO comprehensive
professional services. With hundreds of deployments around the globe,
including some of the largest telecommunication companies in the
world, Cyan allows its customers to customers scale their networks,
reduce costs, simplify operations, and accelerate service delivery.
